AMD offering cheap Athlon X4 840

FUD Zilla writes AMD started shipping its Athlon X4 840. This is a cheap socket FM2+ budget processor with four cores, 3.1GHz clockspeed but unfortunately a 65W TDP. There's no integrated graphics and the pricing seems only a bit cheaper than the 860K, which is an unlocked chip. Pricing is currently around 50GBP (69.5EUR) but availability is very limited.
The chip is a Kaveri-based quad-core clocked at 3.1GHz. It has a max Turbo clock of 3.8GHz and a TDP of 65W. This is only the second Kaveri Athlon to launch – and unlike the Athlon X4 860K, it’s not an unlocked part. It is also somewhat slower than the 860K, which clocks in at 3.7GHz (4.0GHz Turbo), but the 860K is a 95W chip.

A couple of British retailers have listed the chip and KSN claims to have it in stock, ready to ship. Oddly enough, the Athlon X4 840 was announced six months ago, but never found its way to retail.
