AMD prepares US $65 A4-3420 FM1 APU for retail

Another value oriented Socket FM1 APU from AMD will hit the retail channel soon after having been confined to OEMs since its inception in January.

The A4-3420 uses two x86-64 cores clocked at 2.8GHz with 512KB of L2 cache per core. Its integrated GPU power comes in the form of Radeon HD 6410D graphics with 160 stream processors and a 600MHz core clock.

The APU’s integrated memory controller supports dual-channel DDR3-1600MHz memory and a PCI-E 2.0 root hub for discrete graphics options.

In all, the A4-3420 is basically a small leap over the A4-3400 with its higher 100MHz core clock and GPU clock rates while retaining a 65W TDP. This APU is expected to start selling at a price point of US $65 with availability before Trinity’s launch (May/June).

KitGuru says: With Trinity just around the corner it’s doubtful releasing another FM1 socket APU into the retail channel will net AMD any major benefit; with the exception of real budget minded PC builders jumping all over this as the $65 price tag seems pretty slick considering you get a processor and decent GPU in one.
