Leaked CPU-Z Images Reveal AMD Carrizo APU A10-8890K Specs

A CPU-Z image which appears to detail AMD’s next-generation APU, the A10-8890K, has apparently been leaked. WCCFTech has found the image via Guru3D, but at this point it should be taken as a rumour, since nothing has been officially announced.

The CPU-Z image appears to show that AMD is still keeping the current APU name, having it part of the A10 series, possibly the A-10 Elite. The K suffix at the end shows that the APU in question has an unlocked multiplier and the ‘Elite Hexa-Core’ present in the AMD logo indicates that the APU comes with 6 cores. Also, the 95W TDP and 4.4 Ghz core clock makes it an impressive piece.

The latest AMD APU appears to be based on the FM3 socket, which has been stated to come in 2016, which leads to two possibilities here. The first is that the report from AMD was inconclusive and the APU might come early than reported, or the leaked CPU-Z image does not display an actual Carrizo APU.

The CPU is said to boast Excavator cores, the latest revision of the Bulldozer architecture. This might be the case in the leaked image, having it show a high core clock and number of cores. However, the L2 cache appears to show 3 x 1024 KB, which is said to be very low for a 6-core CPU. AMD might have something up its sleeve with some stacked DRAM lifting the L2 Cache, but nothing is sure at the moment.

Samsung Reveals Upcoming Exynos SoCs, Exynos 5244 To Be 34 Percent Faster

Samsung has been silent about its upcoming Exynos SoCs in the past, mainly due to the fact that the technology is going to be behind the 2nd generation of Samsung Galaxy S5 handest. Now with MWC and companies showing off their ‘best of the best’ gadgets and technology, Samsung has officially released some details about the two upcoming Exynos, the 5422 and 5260.

The Exynos 5422 SoC is said to be an Octa-Core having the first Cortex A15 cores clocked at 2.1 GHz and the remaining Cortex A7 cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, while having the ability to use all eight cores at the same time. The chip supports samsung’s big.LITTLE Heterogeneous Multi Processing and is stated to be up to 34 percent faster than its predecessor, the Exynos 5 Octa.

The Exynos 5260, also known as the Exynos 5 Hexa announced in the upcoming Galaxy Note 3 Neo, which features six cores composed of two high-performance Cortex A15 cores clocked at 1.7 GHz and four Cortex A7 cores clocked at 1.3 GHz.

It is said that both the Exynos 5422 and 5260 support high-resolution displays including Quad HD 2560×1440 and the QWXGA 2560×1600 while Exynos 5422 also supports 4K video recording. In terms of availability, the Exynos 5 Hexa 5260 is said to be already in production having the Exynos 5422 at the point of entering it this quarter.
