AMD APUs Little to Big
« on: June 09, 2013, 10:28:10 PM »
AMD hasn't been breaking a lot of ground lately, but their latest generation of APUs have a lot t offer in the way of performance vs. price.  They have great integrated video technology that leaves Core i5 stuff from Intel crying.  Take a look at some of these reviews including the little A4-5000 'Kabini' APU over at TechReport.  If you were looking for something bigger, check out the AMD Elite A-Series A10-6800K APU at TechPowerUp.  This is the fastest chip for the FM2 platform - and it's still well under $200.

   The follow-up to Brazos is a single chip, known by the twin code names Kabini and Temash, that packs four CPU cores, a miniature Radeon graphics processor, and everything else you need for a functional PC onto a tiny slice of silicon. The true competition from Intel will be the Bay Trail part based on the Silvermont architecture, but it's not slated to arrive until later this year. 

TechwareLabs also has a look at the A10-6800K and throws in a A10-6700 for good meansure.
