AMD A10-6790K APU Review

The gang over at HardCoreWare has the AMD A10-6790K APU strapped to the test bench today for a few round of benchmarks.

Today we’re looking at the newest entry to AMD’s APU lineup آ– the A10 6790K. This is based on "Richland" architecture, which is a slightly updated version of Trinity. When Richland was first introduced, the top chip was the A10 6800K running at 4.1/4.4 GHz. The A10 6790K we’re looking at today runs 100 MHz lower, at 4.0/4.3 GHz and more importantly, is $10 cheaper. Since it is an unlocked CPU, getting that 100 MHz back is all but guaranteed.
