AMD A10-6700T 45W Energy Efficient Richland APU Now Available
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
AMD’s “low power” A10-6700T APU will go on sale this week and it will be targeting the energy efficient market segment. The T moniker after the A10-6700 title denotes the reduced power limits of just 45W. Even with a 45W TDP the unit still has 2.5GHz across four cores based on the Piledriver micro-architecture.
This codename Richland APU can TurboCore up to a maximum frequency of 3.5GHz and still stay within its 45W thermal envelope. The APU features 4MB of L2 cache across its four cores and has a Radeon HD 8650D graphics core using 384 stream processors at 760MHz stock and 844MHz boost. As with all Richland APUs there is support for up to 2133MHz memory and PCIe Generation 2.0. It is worth noting that performance with AMD APUs scales quite a lot with memory speeds up to its IMC (integrated memory controller) limit, the iGPU normally benefits the most.
We will see the AMD A10-6700T retail for around $140-160 MSRP or about £125-135. This chip should be ideal for low power HTPCs, media centres and light-load gaming PCs or even just for ordinary desktop PCs on quite a budget.
