AMD officially announced price cuts on their current APU product stack yesterday, which means the cost of a "mainstream" AMD system is now $20-$30 lower than before. Here's the quick rundown of features and pricing for the affected APUs, which include both the new Kaveri APUs as well as previous generation Richland APUs: AMD APU Pricing, October 2014 Kaveri APUs A-series APU Model CPU/GPU Cores CPU Clock Graphics GPU Clock TDP (cTDP) MSRP (USD) A10-7850K 4CPU + 512GPU 3.7-4.0 R7 720 95 (65/45) $143 A10-7800 4CPU + 512GPU 3.5-3.9 R7 720 65 (45) $133 A10-7700K 4CPU + 384GPU 3.4-3.8 R7 720 95 (65/45) $123 A8-7600 4CPU + 384GPU 3.1-3.8 R7 720 65 (45) $92 A6-7400K 2CPU + 256GPU 3.5-3.9 R5 756 65 (45) $58 Richland/Trinity APUs A10-6800K 4CPU + 384GPU 4.1-4.4 8670D 844 100 $112 A8-6600K 4CPU + 256GPU 3.9-4.2 8570D 844 100 $92 A4-6300 2CPU + 128GPU 3.7-3.9 8370D 760 65 $34 A4-5300 2CPU + 128GPU 3.4-3.7 7480D 723 65 $31 A4-4000 2CPU + 128GPU 3.0-3.2 7480D 720 65 $27 Obviously there are differences between the Kaveri and Richland/Trinity platforms and APUs, so keep in mind that Kaveri requires a socket FM2+ motherboard while Richland/Trinity uses socket FM2 (though there are boards that support...
