Energy-efficient AMD A10-6700T APU Goes on Sale This Week

AMD's energy-efficient socket FM2 desktop APU, the A10-6700T, is expected to go on sale later this week. Its selling point is the 45W TDP, with no reduction in core-count, or other components. Based on the 32 nm "Richland" silicon, the A10-6700T features four "Piledriver" x86-64 cores clocked at 2.50 GHz, with TurboCore frequency of 3.50 GHz, and 4 MB of total L2 cache. It features a Radeon HD 8650D graphics core with 384 stream processors, and untouched clock speeds of 760 MHz core, and 844 MHz boost. The chip also features a dual-channel DDR3-2133 MHz integrated memory controller, and a PCI-Express gen 2.0 root complex. The A10-6700T is expected to be priced around $150.

45W TDP?, lower than my A4 4000 Richland. I'm in.

From what I see, this is essentially the desktop version of the AMD A10-5750M, along with a slightly higher GPU clock.

Decent speeds, low power, good price. Looks like a nice chip.

A dual-core with a 30-watt TDP could be awfully nice for a HTPC. Even this looks pretty nice. I can't wait for it to start popping up on the market to see how much power it /really/ consumes. :)

you are getting a quad core with 384 stream GPU under 45W, i think this is way more epicer for an HTPC. put this in a cheap as motherboard and you are set for a portable gaming rig.

I was thinking for a rig that wouldn't be used for gaming, but your right. :)

my point is who cares when you get this much more power for just 15W extra :) plus any htpc should have a cheap discrete, that alone can take up 15W! :roll:

Still no info on what the turbo speed is... probably 3,5GHz... like the mobile one, or it could be more, to justify the extra 10W.

This would go well with some feature packed mITX board, LP 2133MHz 1.5v RAM, SSD, stylish very small form factor case and cooling and a custom ~120W 80+ Titanium PSU... :D

Hey btarunr. Will this ever happen? It's been several weeks and today the place that had pre-orders has delisted this SKU. Is there any new news on these chips? I was really looking forward to the A10-6700T.

Looks like i was wrong. :o :banghead:

They are still listed on the site, but not on google shopping. Also they are not for pre-order the site says "This item is not in stock. It is ordered from the manufacturer as needed. After you place your order, we will order it from the manufacturer.". I don't like the way that sounds. Here are the links

For some reason the boxed version is cheaper than the tray version?
