Earlier this year AMD introduced their Kaveri APUs and I had the chance to take a look at the A10-7850K. While I wouldn’t consider is an enthusiast part, I came out of our testing seriously impressed with the improvements AMD has made on the GPU side of things. I thought the new Kaveri APUs would be perfect for HTPCs as well as budget gaming rigs. Well today AMD is officially announcing a few new APUs that fill in a few gaps in that product line. The new APUs are the A10-7800, A8-7600, and the A6-7400K. While the architecture is the same, the new models do have a few interesting standouts. For one the A6-7400K is unlocked and has a low price to compete with the Intel G3258 Anniversary Edition. The other one that caught my eye was the A10-7800. It shares similar stats with the A10-7850K but with nearly half the power usage! Today I’m going to take a look at the A10-7800 to see if it is as exciting as the numbers imply.

As you can see above the A10-7800 is similar to the 7850K in a lot of ways. They both have the same GPU and core count. Where they differ is the 7800 has a slightly slower CPU clock speed and lower TDP. The 7850K is also unlocked where the7800 isn’t and of course there is the nearly $20 difference in price. Otherwise you are still getting a Kaveri APU on the FM2+ socket.

For those of you who are thinking about building an HTPC or a SFF build the A10-7800 might fit the bill, check it out!
