AMD adds three new members to its APU family

AMD has just introduced a new APU called the A10-7800. This 4th Generation A-Series APU has 12 Compute Cores (four CPU + eight GPU) provides plenty of performance. What's great about this APU is that it also supports AMD's HSA features and makes use of AMD Radeon R7 series graphics. This makes the A10-7800 a great choice for gamers and digital content providers alike.

What's more, this APU supports Ultra HD resolutions as well as post-processing that can help upscaled 1080p content look great on Ultra HD displays. For our readers who love numbers, this APU is clocked at 3.5GHz and has a maximum boost frequency of 3.9GHz. In terms of TDP, this APU has a TDP of 45W, meaning that it'll merely seep wattage and will not require aggressive cooling. Pricing is confirmed to be at US$158 (about RM507).

Also announced were the A8-7600 and the A6-7400K APUS. While they both support HSA features and Mantle, these APUs are optimized to provide good multimedia performance in a small form factor PC. The A8-7600 has 10 Compute Cores while the A6-7400K has six Compute Cores. The A8-7600 is priced at US$104 (about RM334), while the A6-7400K is priced at US$79 (about RM253).

In related news, those who use the latest AMD APUs can further increase overall system performance by opting to use AMD AMP technology, which is available with the AMD Radeon R9 2400 Gamer Series memory modules.
