AMD released their 100W and 65W Richland APUs for the desktop FM2 platform last month, it was met with great reposes since it improved on the areas where Trinity lacked enhancing the clock speeds and HD Radeon performance. AMD is also preparing new 45W Richland APUs which have been leaked in MSI's CPU compatibility list.
AMD 45W Richland APUs Leaked - A10-6700T and A8-6500T
AMD's Richland APU lineup would get two new parts, the A10-6700T and A8-6500T. The "T" moniker represents low TDP variants and its not known whether the new APUs would feature an unlocked "K" design for overclocking
The A10-6700T is a quad core part with a frequency of 2.5 GHz while Turbo Core speed remains unknown. It has 4MB of L2 Cache and an HD 8650D integrated graphics part that is clocked at 720 MHz featuring 384 shaders. The specific model has the product code of "AD670TYHA44HL".
The A8-6500T is a quad core part with a frequency of 2.1 GHz while Turbo Core speed remains unknown. It has 4MB of L2 Cache and an HD 8550D integrated graphics part that is clocked at 720 MHz featuring 256 shaders. The specific model has the product code of "AD650TYHA44HL".
