AMD presents a few FM2+ and AM3+ processors

Advanced Micro Devices has decided to refresh its FM2+ and AM3+ processors lists by introducing a few new models. We will start with the AMD Athlon X4 860K processor for the FM2+ socket. The chip comes with four 28 nm Kaveri cores with Steamroller architecture at 3.7 GHz and has an unlocked multiplier for enabled overclocking. The rest of the specs of this chip include 2 MB of L2 cache and TDP of 95 watts. The new Athlon X4 860K can run on A88X, A85, A75 and A55 motherboards.

The other new chip is the FX-8300, which is a budget-oriented AM3+ offer. The chip is built around 32 nm Vishera silicon and comes with eight CPU cores on the Piledriver architecture running at 3.2 GHz (3.5 GHz in Turbo Mode). The chip has 8 MB of L2 cache and 8 MB of L3 cache and has TDP of 95 watts.

Two more chips have been mentioned too – the yet unannounced Athlon X4 840 processor with four Steamroller cores, 2 MB of L2 cache and clock speed of 3.4 GHz and the Athlon X2 450 that comes with two cores but no other known specs. The first chip also has 95W TDP.
