AMD Godavari APU Lineup Leaked – A10-8850K To Lead The Pack, 12 APUs Planned For Summer 2015

AMD’s upcoming Godavari APU lineup has been leaked by VR-Zone
ahead of its launch in summer, this year. The new Godavari APU which
are also known to be part of the Kaveri-Refresh platform which is aimed
to re-fresh the current Kaveri APUs with the new 8000 series branding
will be featured across 12 new processors utilizing the x86 Steamroller
core and GCN graphics architecture.

AMD Godavari APU “Kaveri-Refresh” Lineup Leaked – A10-8850K Flagship APU

First of all, being simply known as the Kaveri-Refresh platform,
Godavari will feature the same architectural enhancements as Kaveri with
the same CPU and GPU cores. We are talking about x86 Steamroller and
GCN here which have already been fused on the current AMD A-7000 Series
offerings. Godavari will retain the maximum four x86 core and 512 stream
processor design and will be available in several variants as a part to
refresh the current A-Series lineup. AMD is going to use the latest
8000 series branding for the new chips and will stick to the FM2+
platform supporting DDR3 memory at 2133 MHz. The current motherboards
will be able to support the new chips without any problems with new BIOS
updates rolling out prior to launch.

As for performance and clock speeds, the clock speeds will obviously
get a slight bump since that is what’s the refresh is all about. The
chips will retain their TDPs. As for the performance, it will be
anywhere from 5-15% better than the current Kaveri APUs due to better
driver support and improved clock speeds. Other details are not known at
the moment but AMD will have an official announcement made during the
same time as 2015’s Computex event. Aside from Godavari, the main
announcement coming from AMD this year will be the new AMD Radeon graphics cards which will deliver insanely huge performance increases over the current Radeon generation of cards.
In total, AMD is going to launch 12 new APUs, 10 of which are part of
the A-Series family while two are part of the Athlon series family. The
