Richland Athlons and Semprons are coming

Written by Fudzilla staff



No frills, no GPUs

Richland has been out for a while, but so far it has only been available in the guise of A-series APUs. This is about to change, as AMD rolls out cheaper Athlon and Sempron branded parts sans GPU.

CPU World has unearthed two such parts. The Sempron 250 is a 3.2GHz clocked at 3.2GHz. It’s a 65W parts with a relatively modest 1MB of L1 cache and it’s practically a neutered A4-4000. The Athlon X2 350 is also a 65W dual-core, but it’s clocked at 3.5GHz. It also has just 1MB of cache.

A new Trinity-based chip is also on the way. The Athlon X4 750 is a 3.4GHz quad-core with 4MB of cache and it has a 65W TDP.

Although AMD’s GPU-less chips based on APUs tend to offer good value for money, their days are numbered. Sooner or later they will be completely phased out as cheap APUs take their place.
