Quad-core APU with Radeon R7 graphics

In order to put a bit more pressure on Intel's Core i3 Haswell lineup, AMD has now officially introduced the newest A10-7800 FM2+ socket APU which will be based on 28nm Kaveri architecture.

Featuring four Steamroller CPU cores, the A10-7800 does not feature an unlocked CPU base clock multiplier like the A10-7850K APU but does come with a slightly lower 65W TDP. It packs 4MB of L2 cache, works at 3.5GHz base and 3.9GHz TurboCore CPU clocks and features Radeon R7 series GPU with 512 GCN2 cores and 720MHz base clock.

The A10-7800 is a part of the second batch of AMD Kaveri APUs, which also includes the A4-7300 and the A6-7400K, which has recently showed up for pre-order. This lineup follows the A10-7850K, A10-7700K and the A8-7600 Kaveri APUs which were officially launched back in January this year.

The rest of the specs include integrated dual-channel memory controller with support for DDR3-2133 memory and PCI-Express 3.0 root complex.

While it still has to be listed in Europe, the A10-7800 should have a retail/e-tail price of around US $150.
