AMD plans faster Godavari processors

AMD’s FM2+ platform will soon get an upgrade in the form of several new processors with the latest and best so far Godavari design. The FM2+ platform was launched back in 2014 and supported older FM2 chips as well as the then new Kaveri processors. Now FM2+ is Godavari’s territory and the chip generation will further expand it.

So far the Godavari generation has two representatives – the AMD A10-7870K processor and the A8-7670K chip. This line will soon get five more models – the mid-range A6-7470K dual-core processor along with two Athlon processors – the Athlon X4 850 and Athlon X4 870K. In addition to these two models AMD will also offer a faster A10-7890K chip with an unlocked clock multiplier and a faster version of the A8-7670K APU, which will be called A8-7690K.

The upcoming high-end A10-7890K and A8-7690K processors will have four computational cores and 4 MB of L2 cache but will operate at different clock speeds. The A10-7890K will run at 4.1 GHz or 200 MHz faster than the A10-7870K, while the A8-7690K will run at 3.7 GHz. Both chips will have TDP of 95 watts. There are no other tech details on the new Godavari processors, including the A6 and Athlon models so we won’t be able to share the remaining tech specs here.
