AMD A10-6790K is a 4 GHz quad-core chip with 4.3 GHz Turbo Core frequency,. which makes it about 1% slower than the A10-6800K. The rest of the specs of both APUs is almost the same: 4 MB L2 cache, HD 8670D graphics, and 100 Watt TDP. The A10-6790K is priced at $122, or 16% cheaper than the A10-6800K. AMD FX-9370 and FX-9590 extreme performance processors were launched in June, and boasted ultra-high operating frequencies (for production x86 parts), countered by very high TDP and "extreme" price. Initially sold for $350+ and $800+, the FX-9370 and FX-9590 CPUs were eventually priced down to a more reasonable level. The official prices of these processors are $224 and $306.
