AMD, the chipmaker has announced price slash on many of its A-Series desktop processors lineup. And if you are a person looking out getting a desktop setup with AMD system than your sure to save between $20 to $40 and also with the 3.7GHz quad-core A10-7850K – that had initial cost as $179 is now reduced to $143.
The price slash is on multiple AMD’s APUs that includes the Kaveri line and also the Richland and Trinity family APUs. Getting slight old APU’s are to save few more bucks like the 4.1GHz quad-core A10-6800K that was priced $139 is now $112. Alternatively, AMD’s 3GHz dual-core A4-4000 APU initially priced $49 is now got for $27.

Breathtaking performance cannot be expected from these discounted AMD processors. But out of this discounted parts pack, the AMD A10-7850K is considered the best APU that with its CPU speeds can be compared with an Intel Core i3 processor. And the good thing is that more than Intel integrated HD graphics solutions, the AMD’s integrated Radeons graphics are notably better. With just the built in Kaveri R7 dual graphics on moderate settings, games can be run.
Apart from price slash, AMD is also giving new bundles for those who purchase an AMD A10 APU (including the 7850K, 7800, 7700K, 6800K, and 6790K) through the end of October. They are given Murdered: Soul Suspect, Thief or Sniper Elite 3 (three games) absolutely free that can be got with the code available inside the product box. Alternatively, if you do not want to go for the games than the code can be redeemed for a discount purchase of Corel Aftershot Pro 2 which can be got for just $5.
So with this price drop and the recent price slash on R9 290X, it seems affordable in getting an AMD system set up.
