Sales Start for AMD Athlon X4 Quad-Core Richland CPUs

They don't have integrated graphics, unlike their peers

As we have mentioned a few times before, Advanced Micro Devices has more than just accelerated processing units coming out of the factories that make Richland processors. Some CPUs have appeared as well.

Basically, those processors that come out of the factory with their GPUs defective have been turned into Athlon CPUs.

Like the Richland APUs, these CPUs are compatible with Socket FM2 motherboards.

The top-end chip is the Athlon X4 760K Black Edition (AD760KWOHLBOX), a quad-core with 4.10 GHz top speed (3.8 GHz base), a TDP of 100W, and a price of $135 / €135.

Essentially, it is the overclockable version of the Athlon X4 760K that showed up for pre-order the other day.

Oddly enough, the Athlon X4 760K doesn't have a BClk multiplier, despite the K suffix. It will make it a bit trickier than usual to tell it apart from the Athlon X4 760K Black Edition.

The rest of the specs are thus: 192 KB of total L1 cache, 4 MB L2 cache, and dual-channel DDR3 support.
