AMD announced at the Chinajoy 2014 event in China processors athlon X4 860K and FX-8300. Athlon X4 860K — The flagship processor in the Athlon line, which will replace the Athlon X4 760K market. In turn, a medium-sized chip FX-8300 (price of less than $ 150) is intended primarily for the Chinese market and other developing countries (previously it was sold with table PCs from ASUS). New processors do not have built -in graphics, differ in the maximum energy consumption of 95 W and are aimed at the FM2+ and AM3 platforms respectively+.
AMD Athlon X4 860K with an AD860KXBI444JAA X4 760K code includes four Steamroller nuclei operating at a frequency of 3.7 GHz, and is endowed with 2 MB of Kesh-Mapamy L2. The Turbo-frequency is unknown, but taking into account that the A10-7850K frequency is at a level of 3.7 GHz, and in a Turbo mode can rise to 4 GHz, you can assume the same for Athlon X4 860K.
FX-8300, in turn, can offer 8 nuclei (four 2-core modules) with a relatively old PileDriver architecture operating at a frequency of 3.3 GHz (in Turbo mode — up to 4.2 GHz), 8 MB Kesh-Mamaty L3. Unlike the flagship chip Vishera FX-8350 with TDP 125 W, its maximum energy consumption, as already mentioned, is in the range up to 95 watts.
The chip will be compatible with any motherboard AM3+, and until the end of September two more FX models should enter the market — FX-8370 and FX-8310, which will also relate to a segment of less than $ 150. Together with the AMD processors, she also introduced the new campaign Never Settle, which will be exclusive to China and offer virtual currency for three popular projects, including Dota 2.
