AMD reduces APU prices

AMD has revealed that it is permanently reducing the prices of its A-Series APUs.

The new list of ‘Suggested Etail Prices’ represents price cuts in the region of 20 per cent on many of the processors.

For example, the A10-7850K, which was originally priced at $179, has been cut down to $143.

The A6-7400K was previously priced at $84, has now also been reduced to $58.

The company told Hexus that the new pricing offers: “Builders and upgraders the best opportunity yet to grab a new twelve compute core (4CPU + 8GPU) A-series APU with HSA features (hUMA/hQ), full hardware support for DirectX 11.2, close to the metal API support (AMD Mantle), AMD TrueAudio, OpenCL 1.2, and OpenGL 4.4."

AMD has also announced that the company has seen an increase in demand for its AMD-technology-based commercial systems.

Various PC vendors including Acer, HP and Lenovo are now offering AMD-based notebook and desktop solutions in response to the demand.
