AMD has added a new processor to its Godavari APU lineup this morning. The A8-7670K packs four Steamroller CPU cores clocked at 3.6GHz with Turbo speeds up to 3.9GHz. The graphics side of the die holds six GCN Radeon "cores" clocked at 757 MHz. Those numbers are a modest bump over the Kaveri A8-7650K, which features similar CPU and GPU resources at lower clock speeds.
The A8-7670K is the second Godavari APU to hit the market, after the A10-7870K back in May. According to the PR briefing distributed to a variety of sites, including Hexus, AMD believes the 7670K is a better performer in games than a combo like Intel's Pentium G3258 and a GeForce GT 730 discrete graphics card. The company also claims that the 7670K performs better in tasks like applying Photoshop's Smart Sharpen filter and running 3DMark versus Intel's Core i3-4160, though the numbers are a lot tighter in general performance benchmarks like PCMark.
The A8-7670K carries a suggested price of $117.99, and the PR briefing claims "immediate availability."
