AMD preparing two new "unlocked" desktop Llanos

Written by Slobodan Simic

The A8-3870K and the A6-3670K
According to a report over at Xbitlabs.com, AMD is preparing two more A-Series Llano APUs, the A8-3870K and the A6-3670K. As you might have noticed, the "K" letter in the model name will be used to differentiate these "unlocked" models from the rest of the batch.

This time around, AMD decided to scrap the "Black Edition" label and go simply for the letter "K". Spec wise, the A8-3870K and the A6-3670K are 100MHz faster than the A8-3850 and the A6-3650 and feature unlocked multiplier.

The quad-core A8-3870K is clocked at 3.0GHz with yet unnamed Radeon graphics with 400 stream processors clocked at 600MHz. The slower, and thus definitely cheaper, quad-core A6-3670K will tick at 2.7GHz while the GPU part will have 320 stream processors and will be clocked at 444MHz.

Both APUs will have 4MB of L2 cache, same 100W TDP and support for DDR3-1866 memory. According to the schedule these two should be announced sometime in Q4 2011.

so that dung "company" decide to go on numbers instead of quality - how typical that is LOL :D
shitdozer already failed even before release:

it will only be good for coding (8 "cores) but hardly even touch Intels 6 real cores,and after Sandy E and Ivy releases amd dung "company" can go in to history - only idiots like dan will spend they low income on that stuff which is 3 years from what Intel have
shitdozer - MHUAHAHAHAHAHAH AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHHAHAHA HAHA
amd = EPIC FAIL of EPIC PROPORTIONS :D :D :D :D

Got to admit seems odd that AMD chose to add 'k' to their CPU's. The cynical part of me thinks maybe they hope it will confuse the consumer and they would rather have a 3870k over a 2600k...

AMD should have stuck with 'black edition' imho..

damn...beat me to it. was wondering about the "k".... black edition always sounded cooler anyway. im certain most consumers are unaware of a model number in most cases anyway. all they know or care to know is....QUAD CORE,,, 3GHZZZZ, us informed folk will obviously know the diff.... To me a "k" when only looking at amd stuff wouldn't inform the customer that it is better, for all they know, it could be the indicate a lower watt version. BLACK EDITION speaks to the consumer better.

AMD has always historically borrowed naming schemes from intel (and vice versa) it goes back to the first chips that were cheaper knock-offs of intel - nothing new here

but I agree, black edition has its roots and should have been continued

i think AMD decided to use K so that noobs would understand that is unlocked :)

if this were apple instead of intel...amd would be sued by now for using the letter K!!
