Those who run a dedicated graphics card have no need for the built-in GPU counterpart that’s offered from within the APU’s, and AMD of course has it covered for them too. The newest addition to the FM2+ CPU lineup; the Athlon X4 860K CPU, will start shipping next week according to a tweet from AMD’s VP of Sales, Roy Taylor.
The new Athlon X4 860K CPU follows the same recipe as all the other current Athlon CPUs, but kicks it up a notch. It is a quad core running at 3.7 GHz with a turbo speed of 4 GHz. If this still isn’t enough and you’d like more power than it delivers right out of the box, you’ll be happy about it being a Black Edition. The unlocked multiplier allows for easy overclocking on most motherboards. The AMD X4 860K has 4MB cache (2 x 2MB) and supports up to 2133 MHz memory, like its current brothers.

It drops right into the FM2+ socket and comes with a TDP of 95 watt and a 3-year warranty. Overclockers UK has the new AMD CPU listed for pre-order at a price of £67.99 inc VAT; a great price for this CPU.
Thank you AMD for providing us with this information
