AMD to cut APU pricing on September 1

AMD is preparing price drops for its APUs to bolster its competitiveness for the back-to-school shopping season. X-bit Labs got its hands on the details and writes select A-series APUs will get a 7 to 8 percent price drop on September 1st. Unfortunately, most of the price cuts are for the older Richland chips, the A10-7700K is the only APU from the new Kaveri series to get a price cut.
The only two new chips that AMD will launch on the 1st of September are the Athlon X4 860K (four-cores, 3.70GHz/4.0GHz, 4MB L2 cache, no graphics core, 95W, FM2+) for $82 as well as the A4-7300 (two cores, up to 4.0GHz, 1MB L2, Radeon HD 8470D graphics with 192 stream processors, 65W TDP, FM2) for $39. The former chip will be the first graphics-free CPU for the FM2+ platform and may pose interest to overclockers (it will be interesting to learn how good overclockers Steamroller cores produced using general-purpose 28nm process technology without graphics engine are), whereas the latter APU belongs to previous-generation and is aimed at the low-end office PCs.
