The new AMD A-Series APUs would be launching tomorrow however US Online retailer Amazon has already listed several Desktop APUs.

The flagship A10-5800K is currently listed for $149.99 ($137.23 updated price). The fastest of the A-Series feature a Quad Core design with turbo speed upto 4.2GHz and a HD7660D IGP with 384 Stream processors. The APU further offers a 100W TDP and K Unlocked multiplier for overclockers to rejoice. The pricing scheme pretty much matches that of the last year Llano A8-3870K flagship but performance has improved due to the addition of Piledriver core architecture.

Next up is the A10-5700 which was reportedly listed for $149.99 too for the boxed version but the pricing we currently see on Amazon at the moment is $168.88 which is even higher than A10-5800K. It may be a misprint from Amazon, the chip runs at 4.0GHz Turbo and features the same HD7660D iGPU with 384 stream processors however unlike the A10-5800K, there’s no unlocked design and a TDP of 65W.
