AMD has launched its latest generation A-series ‘Richland’ accelerated processing units (APUs) in India. Originally, these APUs were launched globally at Computex last month. In addition to these, the company has also launched its latest family of FX series CPUs that have SKUs that have 8-cores and have class leading clock speeds of 5GHz.

The new A-series APUs combines AMD Piledriver CPU cores with an AMD Radeon HD 8000 graphics stack on an FM2 motherboard infrastructure. The new line includes the A10-6800K, the A10-6700, the A8-6600K and the A8-6500. All the APUs are quad-core and have clock speeds in excess of 4GHz, when the max turbo base is enabled. AMD also promises wider motherboard compatibility. Also Read - Intel announces new 11th Gen Tiger Lake processors, Intel Evo and new logo

The A10-6800K combines a Radeon HD 8670D GPU with a quad-core CPU that has a clock speed of 4.1GHz, support for DDR3 RAM at 2,133MHz and has an approximate price of $142 or Rs 8,197. Also Read - Marvel's Avengers PC: Here's the minimum and recommended system requirements

The A10-6700 has the same Radeon HD 8670D GPU, but this model is a lower voltage 65-watt model. It also has a 3.7GHz quad-core CPU and an approximate price of $142 or Rs 8,197.

The A8-6600k uses a lower end Radeon HD 8570D GPU and also has a quad-core CPU clocked at 3.9GHz. This is has an approximate price of $112 or Rs 6,457.

The A8-6500 is again a lower voltage 65-watt solution and has a Radeon 8570D GPU and a 3.5GHz quad-core processor. It also costs approximately $112 or Rs 6,457.

The new FX range of CPUs are geared towards hardcore gamers and are basically built for pure speed. They were announced globally earlier in the week at E3 and feature two models the FX-9590 and the FX-9370. Notably, the FX-9590 is the model that integrates 8-piledriver cores that are clocked at a whopping 5GHz. The FX-9370, on the other hand, also has 8-piledriver cores, but they are clocked at 4.7GHz, which is also pretty insane. Pricing for these has not been announced, but AMD says that the CPU will be available with system integrators beginning this summer.
