[Various]A8-3870k Llano goes on sale, $145 on Newegg HH review posted!

post #1 of 104
Thread Starter 
As the title states. It is listed on Amazon.com but says out of stock and the price is higher than I expected. Maybe its just inflated as of now until it's available.


Im ready to see some reviews with some decent overclocks. Hoping for 4+Ghz! Also any word on the FX-6200? I thought it was supposed to launch as well?

Now it's out guys, where's the reviews?

I discovered it on CanadaComputers a few days ago and was shocked a bit to indeed see that they are labelled with a "K" at the end just like the Intel side of things.
EDIT: AMD's A8-3870k and A6-3670k listings

It is still marketed as black edition, but as so: AMD A8 3870K Black Edition

Yea of course you will have people complaining about the naming scheme they used... Looks similar to the ivy bridge i7-3770k but of higher denomination A8-3870k lol. Well, lets face it, Marketing is king. I don't blame them for going that route. Perception is the key here. they had to keep the Black edition I guess because that is their thing. Im still new to all of this and I know that K means unlocked multipliers but what does it stand for? (if anything at all) Anyways looks to be a pretty decent chip I just might have to build be one for my HTPC/Gaming Rig

I think using the (K) is pretty smart, but it's funny I've never be curious about this before: What does the K stand for? Why did intel pick it?

What exactly is an A8? A quad-core Phenom X4 or something?

32nm as well too, ya? Basically everyone expects it to clock better and higher than the old 45nm and possibly beat bulldozer.
AMD, I give up.

Sorry but no. That IGP is hardwired to the bus. Your limiting factor if you will.

Just repeating what everyone has been saying/wishing.

Didn't they put a cap on max "unlocked" multiplier too? I don't expect much personally, at this point I'd expect to see bd scrapped before they let a llano core beat it.
AMD, I give up.
