AMD has rustled up a new processor which will shortly join its A-Series APU offerings. The new processor is called the A10-7800 APU and is based upon the 28nm AMD Kaveri architecture. This processor is multiplier locked, as you might have guessed from the lack of the 'K' suffix.

The AMD A10-7800 APU works with socket FM2+ motherboards and this accelerated processing unit has the following key specifications:

  • Steamroller Cores: 4
  • Turbo Core 3.0: yes
  • Base/Turbo clock: 3.5/3.9GHz
  • L2 Cache: 4MB
  • Graphics: Radeon R7, 512 cores, 720MHz
  • Memory support: DDR3 memory up to 2133MHz
  • TDP: 65W

AMD APU savvy readers will observe that this latest APU model offers processing specifications somewhere between the A10-7700K and A10-7850K – which are both unlocked parts. It has better graphics and a 0.1GHz faster Turbo Clock than the A10-7700K but equal graphics and a slower Base clock and Turbo clock Steamroller cores (by 0.2GHz and 0.1GHz respectively) than the flagship A10-7850K.

However, an advantage for non-overclocking types of this new AMD A10-7800 APU is the much lower TDP. Both the 'K' processors mentioned in the comparison above have a 95W TDP. US pricing for the new APU is expected to be in the region of $150.

AMD also launched a new video advertisement yesterday, showing off the benefits of its A-Series APUs – "turning everyday computing into extraordinary computing," see below.

Any timeline when these will enter retail?? Even the A8 7600 has just appeared in a pre-built PC in the US:

What does “DIFFUSED” in Germany mean -
I want to know what diffused in Germany means as well. Probably jargon I don't understand but it doesn't seem to make me more confident in the product to be honest.
It means the chip(the silicon bit) is produced in the Dresden fab in Germany and packaged in Malaysia. At least this is what I think it means.
AMD makes its wafers in Germany (at Global Foundries in Dresden). The wafers are sent to Malaysia to be cut up and made into CPUs.
