AMD Athlon X4 760K rocks Richland core

For discrete GPU lovers

AMD has a tradition of rolling out crippled APUs in the form of very cheap Athlon processors. Trinity and Llano based Athlons have been around for years and now it’s Richland’s turn.

The Athlon X4 760K has been spotted by CPU World in several online shops, including Amazon and eBay UK. Some companies already have them in stock.

The chip features four CPU cores and 4MB of L2 cache. It is clocked at 3.8GHz, but it can hit 4.1GHz on Turbo. It supports DDR3-1866 memory and the rest of the feature set is basically a carbon copy of what you’d get with an A-series Richland part, sans graphics.

Amazon UK is listing it at GBP 64, which translates to USD 101. The chip should be available in a couple of weeks and it might not be the only Richland based Athlon this year.
