Advanced Micro Devices weathered its Trinity A-Series launch day without any big hiccups. In fact, its processors were pretty well received, painting a promising picture of likely sales.
Alas, the company did not completely succeed in finishing the release without errors. As it posted
on the website of its Japanese branch, customers from the country of sunrise will have to keep an eye out for “different” processors.
The reason for this is simple: the stickers on some A6-5400K, A8-5600K and A10-5800K chips lack one of the zeros, leaving them named A6 540K, A8 560K, and A10 580K, respectively.
This isn't a very big deal, but it's still annoying, considering that those stickers are there to provide a list of all the essential specs of the AMD processors.
Then again, this isn't the first time this has happened (AMD Phenom II X6 1075T had the wrong clock speed on the box), and it's not like Intel didn't do something of the sort in the past too (Core i5 and i7 CPUs were given incorrect TDPs).
