from this site,
this is the quote.
APUs have a different naming convention then their FX cpus; an apu uses the same "core" as an fx cpu, however it adds on a radeon graphics core for onchip video... The a10 and a8 are quad cores, the a6 and a4 are all dual cores. Its probably easiest to think of these APUs in the terms AMD describes them. The a4 and a6 are meant to be energy efficient HTPC chips, or simple office/web surfing chips. The a8 is more mainstream, while the a10 is meant for more gaming. Generally the difference between an a4 and a6 is the a6 has a better graphics processor, the same is said for the difference between an a8 and a10, where the cores are about the same power, just the onboard gpu is better in the a10.
the apu comes with 4 more numbers following the A10/8/6/4 designation. The first number represents the "generation," the second number represents the base clock speed, the last two numbers aren't used yet and are zeros. There is two prefixes you might see behind those 4 numbers. M is for mobile, for the mobile APUs and K means it has an unlocked multiplier for overclocking.
so Ive been going all long with knowing that A4 and A6 is dual core, while the A8 and A10 are quad core.
guess that guy from the link is wrong?
