AMD APU A8-3870K

AMD is betting big on their APU platform and they've got a lot of great products out there for sure.  Vortez looks at the A8-3870K chip that comes with an unlocked multiplier and a Radeon 6550D built into this 3.0GHz chip.  Take a look and see if this quad-core budget wonder has enough prowess to make you happy.

As we can see, the A8-3870K is virtually identical to the the A8-3850 with exception of an increased frequency to 3.0GHz up from 2.9GHz within the same TDP, because of this we can assume that base performance will be similar to the A8-3850. Though the real selling point of the Black Edition is the unlocked multiplier.
