AMD adds new processor to Godavari line

A8-7670K is now with us

AMD has added the A8-7670K to its Godavari APU lineup which has four Steamroller CPU cores clocked at 3.6GHz.

It can also manage Turbo speeds up to 3.9GHz with the wind behind it or it going downhill.

There are also six GCN Radeon "cores" clocked at 757 MHz which are a modest increase over the Kaveri A8-7650K.

This is the second Godavari APU in the shops. We saw an A10-7870K in May. AMD claims that the 7670K is a better performer in games than a combo like Intel's Pentium G3258 and a GeForce GT 730 discrete graphics card.

It also adds that the 7670K performs better in tasks like applying Photoshop's Smart Sharpen filter and running 3DMark versus Intel's Core i3-4160.

The A8-7670K carries a suggested price of $117.99, and AMD says has "immediate availability."
