Today, AMD announced its 2013 Elite A-Series Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) for desktops, codenamed “Richland”.

The new AMD A-Series APUs combine AMD “Piledriver” CPU architecture with AMD Radeon HD 8000 Series graphics on the FM2 motherboard infrastructure. The ability to support existing A85X, A75, and A55 platforms as well as forward compatibility with FM2+ motherboards provides users the ability to buy now with the flexibility to upgrade as new platforms come to market. In addition, these APUs feature maximum clock speeds over 4 GHz for next generation compute workloads.

Utilizing the latest AMD Radeon HD 8000 Series graphics, the Elite A-Series combines the CPU and up to 384 Radeon parallel processing cores to offer up to 15 percent increased graphics performance over its predecessor, the AMD Second Generation APU (formerly codenamed Trinity). The Elite A-Series APU for desktops supports new AMD Radeon Memory Gamer Series at 2133 MHz. When paired with an A-Series APU, the DDR3-2133 MHz Radeon Memory Gamer Series will give up to a 13 percent performance increase over DDR3-1866 MHz memory.
