    AMD's two low-cost socket FM2 APUs based on the 32 nm "Richland" silicon, the A8-6500T, and A10-6700T, began selling in the US. The two are priced at $108.59 and $155.91 a piece, respectively. Their biggest feature is the 45W TDP, compared to 65W on regular SKUs, and 100W on the factory-unlocked ones. Both are quad-core parts. The A8-6500T features CPU clock speeds of 2.10 GHz, with 3.10 GHz TurboCore speeds, Radeon HD 8550D integrated graphics with 256 stream processors, and 4 MB of L2 cache; whereas the A10-6700T features 2.50 GHz CPU clocks, with 3.50 GHz TurboCore speeds, Radeon HD 8650D integrated graphics with 384 stream processors, and 4 MB of L2 cache.

    45W should enough for them to be passive-cooled with a medium-sized heatsink.

    I have an unRAID server with 6 HDDs running on a C60 (1GHz Bobcat dual core) w/4GB of RAM and it does fine.

    Not really, priced higher, clocked lower. I dont see who will use a lower clocked quad core with integrated GPU that was originally designed for light gaming and/or heavy multimedia loads. You either buy a low power processor for HTPC, or you buy a 5/6800K, not this.
