The new AMD A8-7600 APU is an unusual chip to lead a product launch. Typically, AMD and Intel both sample the highest end of their new product lines, focusing on improving top-level performance and catering directly to the enthusiast market. With this launch, AMD is instead targeting power efficiency and maximum performance per watt. The company's new 45W chip is substantially faster than the old, Richland-based family of APUs , and it challenges Intel for the low-power desktop space.

Kaveri is the most important launch for AMD in years, for three principle reasons.

Pros

Best-in-class GPU performance. Much-improved CPU performance. Future support for HSA applications and the Mantle graphics API should further improve performance.

  • Cons Performance still lags far behind that of Intel chips.
  • Bottom Line

    The new AMD A8-7600 offers best-in-class GPU performance and much-improved CPU performance in the 45W power envelope. Future support for HSA applications and the Mantle graphics API should further improve the chip's performance.

    That's great and all; but when will it be available for purchasing?

    The fact that the APU only needs 45W to function at 3.3ghz is really impressive, i currently have the A8-6600K and it uses 90-120W at 4.6ghz
