AMD ships its next-generation Carrizo-L desktop chip, but it's going to Chinese vendors first

Mark Hachman | May 12, 2015
AMD is calling Carrizo a “sixth-generation” part, implying it's more advanced than Intel’s own fifth-generation Core chips. We'll have to wait in line behind China to find out, though.

Unfortunately, AMD did not announce the prices of the new chips.

Presumably, however, the new AMD 7000 Series chips will be priced higher than AMD's existing microprocessors. AMD also issued a price cut for its existing products, making room, as it were, for the new chips. Don't expect to save a bundle under the new prices, however; for AMD, every little bit of profit counts.

Both the 4GHz A10-7850K and 3.9GHz A10-7800 now cost $127, while the 3.8GHz A10-7700K costs $117. The 3.8GHz A8-7650K costs $95, the 3.8GHz A8-7600, $85, while the A6-7400K and A4-73000 cost $60 and $42, respectively.
