While Intel is rolling out its high-end Haswell-E platform, AMD has three new low-budget Athlon X2 and X4 processors. These new chips have no integrated graphics.
The Athlon X4 800 series processors are produced on 28nm technology, and incorporate 4 CPUs cores and 4 MB of L2 cache. The 860K runs at 3.7 GHz, and has a maximum Turbo Core frequency of 4 GHz. Its performance can be easily increased, as the CPU has the clock multiplier unlocked. The 860K is rated at 95 Watt TDP. Feature-wise, this SKU is similar to the A10-7850K APU with disabled GPU portion of the chip.
  • Athlon X2 450: dual-core, dual-threaded / 3.5GHz / 3.9GHz Turbo, 1MB L2, 65W TDP
  • Athlon X4 840: quad-core, quad-threaded/ 3.1GHz / 3.8GHz Turbo, 4MB L2, 65W TDP
  • Athlon X4 860K: quad-core, quad-threaded / 3.7GHz / 4GHz / 4MB L2 / 95W TDP
