AMD A8-7600 65W 3.3GHz Socket FM2+
The A8-7600 is part of AMD's brand new range of APUs, codenamed 'Kaveri'. As the successor to last year's Richland APUs, Kaveri includes new CPU cores based on AMD's 'Steamroller' architecture, plus a Radeon R7 series GPU integrated onto the die, four x86-64 cores clocked as high as 3.7 GHz, pushing up to 4 GHz as part of the APU's Turbo mode.

AMD really is focused on gaming performance with Kaveri and believes this is where its latest APUs have a serious advantage over the competition. The company's latest processors are being pushed as budget solutions for modern 1080p gaming, though on paper the Radeon R7 doesn't look quite up to the task...80

If you follow our website and the technology industry more broadly then you may have heard a lot about Kaveri since it was officially launched on January 14th 2014. Kaveri is the codename for AMD's fourth generation of desktop APU (Accelerated...-

Kaveri is another incremental improvement to AMD's mainstream desktop lineup. Efficiency is the watchword, both in terms of CPU clock cycles and power consumption. The A8-7600, despite having a modest clock speed of 3.1 or 3.3 GHz (depend on the TDP...-

As the benchmarks have shown, AMD are still way off when it comes to CPU specific tasks. However, Kaveri was never really meant to compete with Intel's i5 or i7 processors and was aimed more at the casual gamer. In terms of gaming performance,...78

The new AMD A8-7600 offers best-in-class GPU performance and much-improved CPU performance in the 45W power envelope. Future support for HSA applications and the Mantle graphics API should further improve the chip's performance.70

Kaveri ultimately paves the way for small, cheap computers that make fewer concessions than ever before, though, on a cautionary note, be aware it will be a while before HSA-optimised programs and the much-vaunted Mantle API add the expected lustre to AMD's newest family of APUs.80

We've spent the days following CES benchmarking two of AMD's new Kaveri-based APUs. Do the Steamroller x86 architecture, GCN graphics design, and HSA-oriented features impress, or do they come up short against Intel's value-oriented...-

The AMD A8-7600 APU’s performance is somewhat of a mixed bag. Please keep in mind, however, that this APU is actually the low-end model in AMD’s initial Kaveri-based APU line-up. The A8-7600’s CPU cores are clocked lower than other model90

Alright lets wrap things up. I profoundly like the new Kaveri architecture, it is the first true native heterogeneous APU architecture that will set the path into the future. With it's well over 2 Billion transistors it isn't even a cheap chip...-

At idle, and at the same 45 watt specification, the Kaveri APU draws the same amount of power as the two Richland parts. The Core i3-4330, though obviously on a very different platform, is a few watts under that.Our first load power consumption test c...100
