Introduction


Chip1

In January 2014 AMD unveiled its latest generation of accelerated processing units dubbed “Kaveri”. The range was formed of the A10-7850K flagship, the A10-7700K mid-range part and the entry-level & low power A8-7600; of which a previous comparison can be found here. These new range of APU’s brought forward a new leap in internal graphic processing units (iGPU); making them more powerful and energy-efficient than ever before. Today we have the newest addition to the lineup, the A8-7650k. This chip is based on the A8-7600, but has been given the famous AMD ‘Black Edition’ treatment, allowing the user to overclock the core somewhat freely. Pricing in today’s market is paramount, and producing a fully unlocked processor for the same price as its predecessor is mind-boggling.

Comparison-chart

AMD seem to know how to pile the goodies into their products, offering a multitude of graphical advantages at such a low price throughout its entire range of APU’s.

Detail

Are we expecting anything different with this newest addition? I’d say not, with the same architecture as its little brother, the A8-7600, but just an unlocked multiplier and configurable TDP, we may seem some small gains once overclocked.
