Oops: Leaked AMD APUs. A8-6500T and A10-6700T specs. Richland to hit 45W in quad-core APUs?

Accidents happen. AMD has been rolling out their Richland APUs for the last month and partners have been keeping up with supporting products. While common, the problem with rolling releases is the potential confusion over what has and what has not been released. Unfortunately for MSI, their support chart for FM2 CPUs includes a couple of products which are news to us.

AMD will be able to hit the 45W TDP with the, apparently, upcoming A8-6500T and A10-6700T APUs. Tom's Hardware seemed to have slightly different information, their chart does not exactly jive with the one posted by MSI; for instance, they claimed the T suffix implied a low power variant when MSI's chart confirmed a 45W TDP... fairly loud and clear. As such, our table will be my best attempt at combining both charts along with a bit more leaked GPU information from TechPowerUP.

GPU Boost Clock 844 MHz (???) 844 MHz (???)
GPU Shader Count 256 384

It is impossible to know expected price, release window, or even whether the product still exists. For that, we will need to wait for an official unveiling... or at least another unofficial one.

Given the cpu is only clocked to 2.1/2.4ghz, 45 watts seems do-able but given how lacking AMD is on CPU. Not sure this cpu will be able tearing up any benchmarks even when put against a core i3 part cept on gpu side.

I agree, Amd does not compete with Intel on the processor side of things wish they did tho, it would be a better market for Amd and for the processor.
