AMD Reveals Budget oriented A8-7670K


AMD has just revealed their A8-7670K APU, a budget gaming CPU+GPU combo, which is a higher clocked variant of their existing A8-7650K APU, a winner of an OC3D Value for money award.

In terms of pure clock speed we see a boost of 300MHz in this CPUs base clock speeds and a 100MHz boost n this CPUs boost clock speeds, which is very impressive since this APU operates at the same TDP as it's predecessor. The clock speed increases do not end there, with this APU having a 37MHz boost in GPU clock speed to go along with it's CPU overclock.

With a retail price of $117.99, which roughly equates to £76, this APU offers a great value. With a price tag of only £16 higher than it's CPU only equivalent, the Athlon 860K, it offers a CPU/GPU combination which simply cannot be beaten in price.

This APU is a K model, meaning that it is overclockable on both the CPU and the GPU side, meaning that a large amount of performance can be gained if you decide to overclock this chip further. Overclocking the GPU section of this APU can offer a tremendous gain in gaming performance, with our old A8-7650K being able to overclock to over 1GHz on the GPU core from it's stock speed of 720MHz.
