  1. A collection of AMD's Carrizo-L-based APUs for notebooks and all-in-ones have begun shipping to OEMs, meaning it won't be too long before we see the Puma-based products in new devices.

    APU TDP DDR3 Speed CPU Cores CPU Speed L2 Cache Graphics
    A8-7410 12-25W 1866 MHz 4 Up to 2.5 GHz 2 MB Radeon R5
    A6-7310 12-25W 1600 MHz 4 Up to 2.4 GHz 2 MB Radeon R4
    A4-7210 12-25W 1600 MHz 4 Up to 2.2 GHz 2 MB Radeon R3
    E2-7110 12-25W 1600 MHz 4 Up to 1.8 GHz 2 MB Radeon
    E1-7010 10W 1333 MHz 2 Up to 1.5 GHz 1 MB Radeon

    In total there are five Carizzo APUs now available, four of which feature quad-core Puma+ CPUs (the other is dual-core), and all come with some form of Radeon graphics. These APUs are the successor to last year's Beema line, while we can expect Excavator-based Carrizo APUs with higher levels of performance later this year.

    AMD has also reduced the prices of their Kaveri desktop APUs across the board. Most of the APUs are $6-16 cheaper than the prices AMD set in October last year, which equates to a price drop as high as $46 when compared to launch prices.

    APU Old Price New Price Reduction
    A10-7850K $143 $127 $16
    A10-7800 $133 $127 $6
    A10-7700K $123 $117 $6
    A8-7650K $105 $95 $10
    A8-7600 $92 $85 $7
    A6-7400K $58 $60 -$2
    A4-7300 $42 $42 $0

    Customers after a Kaveri desktop APU will see the price cuts come into effect on May 10.

    Man. Except for HTPCs, I still don't see the use of APUs on desktop. Not until the CPUs and iGPU don't become massively powerful at least.

    The second graph with the price reductions shows a grey bar and a black one that unless you select the text inside it's unreadable (At least for IE11).

    They are good for building home PC's for users who like light gaming. Built one for a friend who had a small budget for electronic expenses. He prefers to use a computer for surfing and can still play Shogun II at 30frames. $300

    Unless you built him a 7850K, overclocked it, both CPU and GPU and used AMD's 2400 XMP ram, I .... oh well. Good for him.

    He also likes it quiet and using lower power consumption.
