AMD to refresh Kaveri line-up this week

A few new SKUs could be on the way

It appears that a couple of new Kaveri APUs are on the way, but don’t expect any miracles. 

According to a Japanese site, AMD will release the new parts on May 28th, and the fastest of the lot will be the A10-7870K. This part is clocked at 3.9GHz stock and 4.1GHz Turbo, and boasts R7 graphics with 512 shaders (still no word on GPU clocks though).

As for the rest of the Kaveri line, it’s unclear whether we will see a lot of changes. The new A10-7870K should sell for about $140, which will make it marginally more expensive than the A10-7850K and A10-7800.

It’s quite possible that this is not the official price and that the new part will dethrone the A10-7850K, in which case the rest of the Kaveri line-up should be in line for some price cuts. However, we still cannot confirm this.
