AMD A10-7860K "Godavari" Desktop Processor Launched

AMD A10-7860K, A6-7470K & Athlon X4 845 APUs Launched

February 2, 2016 – AMD officially launched three new desktop processors – the AMD A10-7860K, the AMD A6-7470K and the AMD Athlon X4 845. Let’s take a look!

 

AMD A10-7860K “Godavari” Desktop Processor

Based on the Godavari core, the new AMD A10-7860K offers only a slight performance boost over the Kaveri-based A10-7850K. However, the improvements in fabrication technology and binning process allowed for a more efficient processor. This dropped the A10-7860K’s TDP to just 65 W. Compare that to the A10-7850K which has a 95 W TDP.

The A10-7860K slides in between the two existing Kaveri-based A10-7870K and A8-7670K processors. AMD will also introduce a faster A10-7890K later in Q1, 2016.

Even though the A10-7860K has a TDP of 65 W, AMD will continue to include a 95 W cooler with it. It does not, however come with the new AMD Wraith cooler. It will feature the new and improved AMD 95 W quiet cooler instead.

 

Two New Kaveri Processors Join The Team

AMD also announced two new Kaveri-based processors – the AMD A6-7470K and the AMD Athlon X4 845. The A6-7470K is a dual-core APU with a quad-core GPU and 1 MB of L2 cache. The Athlon X4 845, on the other hand, has four cores but lacks graphics capability.

The A6-7470K will come with a standard 65 W cooler, while the Athlon X4 845 comes with the new and improved AMD 95 W quiet cooler.

AMD Wraith Cooler Delivers Better Cooling With Less Noise

February 2, 2016 – AMD officially launched the AMD Wraith cooler, which they claim delivers better cooling with less noise. They also announced a new AMD 95 W quiet cooler, which also offers quieter performance. Let’s take a look!

 

The AMD Wraith Cooler

The AMD Wraith cooler features a heatsink with 24% more surface area, and a more powerful fan that delivers 34% more airflow. Yet it generates less than 1/10th of the noise of the previous cooler. That’s why they called it the Wraith.

The only downside? AMD will only be bundling it with the AMD FX 8370 processor. AMD will actually offer two versions of the AMD FX 8370 :

  • AMD FX 8370 with the Wraith cooler at the price of the previous AMD FX 8370 with a standard cooler.
  • AMD FX 8370 with a standard cooler at a new, lower price.

 

The New AMD 95 W Quiet Cooler

AMD also introduced a new and improved 95 W quiet cooler for the newly-launched AMD A10-7860 and AMD Athlon X4 845 processors. They promise that it will be almost as quiet as the AMD Wraith cooler.

AMD will also offer an improved cooler with selected AMD processor models. They will offer better performance and lower noise levels, just not at the same level as the AMD Wraith cooler or the new AMD 95 W quiet cooler.
