Word is going around that AMD is working on two new quad-core processors; the A8-7690K and A10-7890K. Both chips have a 75W TDP and will be based on the same Godavari stepping as the 7x70K parts. These models will offer a bit more performance than existing APUs.
Owners of socket FM2+ motherboards would be happy to know that AMD plans to release even faster A10-7890K processor with unlocked clock multiplier. There will be also a 100 MHz faster version of the A8-7670K, dubbed A8-7690K.

The A8-7690K and A10-7890K will incorporate 4 CPU cores and 4 MB of L2 cache. The A10-7890K will have the cores clocked at 4.1 GHz, or 200 MHz higher than the A10-7870K. The A8-7690K will operate at 3.7 GHz. We do not have complete specifications of both parts therefore we cannot tell whether GPU specs will be improved or not.
