Top Richland 28nm APU is A10-6800K

Some Details on the New Apple Macbook Air and Macbook Pro Leaked

Top Richland 28nm APU is A10-6800K

The successor to AMD's Trinity line of APUs, codenamed Richland, just got a name. It won't surprise many that the top Richland processor will be named A10-6800K . It will succeed AMD's current flagship APU, the A10-5800K, and continue the similar naming convention.

The A10 6800K is a quad-core APU with DirectX 11 support and it will fit 100W TDP envelope. It continues to support FM2 motherboards and the rest of AMD's Trinity infrastructure. The K suffix indicates that the processor will come with an unlocked multiplier and it will offer easy overclocking for the willing. Naturally Richland A-series APUs do support AMD Turbo core and its graphics is based on Radeon HD 8000 series.

The expected launch time is June, but the production should be ready by late March 2013. Production candidate samples were scheduled for early December, while late January should be the time for production ready samples. The Richland generation currently consists of four quad-cores and two dual-core processors.

Some Details on the New Apple Macbook Air and Macbook Pro Leaked

Apple has issued requests for quotations (RFQ) to Taiwan-based supply chain makers for the revision of several notebook models including MacBook Pro and MacBook Air series in June 2013, causing ultrabook vendors to be concerned, according to supply chain makers.

The sources pointed out that the MacBook Air for 2013 will feature a new processor platform, but its industrial design will not see any major changes.

The sources noted that pressure on ultrabook vendors mainly comes from the Air's price since Apple is likely to reduce the prices for its existing MacBook Airs before the launch of the new models which could take away demand for ultrabooks.

The sources estimated that MacBook series total shipments in 2013 will reach 17 million units, but sales may not reach a similar level. Apple sold 12.88 million MacBook products in 2011 and 9.78 million units in the first three quarters of 2012.
