Richland – AMD's answer to Haswell


Richland are actually not so new even despite the new name, they are actually more or less chips based on the current Piledriver x86 architecture and VLIW4 graphics architecture known to us from previous APU's. A step forward was achieved in terms of performance due to a higher operating speeds of x86 cores but also of integrated GPU. A10-6800K, the fastest new APU also boasts support for the 2,133-megahertz memory which is quite important for users who intend to use the integrated graphics.
