AMD Quad-Core Athlon X4 760 CPU Up for Pre-Order

The whole point of the Richland series of accelerated processing units was to provide the world with better hybrid processors, which had good integrated graphics processing units.

Some chips come out of the factory defective, but that doesn't mean they need to be thrown away. AMD can just disable the defective parts and sell them as lower-cost processors. The Athlon-branded Richland chips are what happens when the APUs come out with faulty graphics. They end up with the GPU disabled, which means they don't qualify as APUs at all.

Athlon X4 760K is an example of this, with four cores working at 3.8 GHz (400 MHz better than Trinity-based 750K). Turbo Core 3.0 takes things to 4.1 GHz in a pinch. The cache memory is of 4 MB (L2) and the memory controller can handle DDR3-1866 RAM. Online retailers should have the chip selling for $129.75 / £82.95 / €97.58.
