In a recently issued press release AMD claims that its new A10-7870K APU "delivers a best-in-class experience for eSports and online gaming with superior performance," adding that this "new processor also delivers exceptional performance in modern workloads and is designed for the future with Microsoft Windows® 10."




Backed by 12 cores comprised of 4 CPU and 8GPU, this processor will has now hit the market at a small price of $137.


Aiming to allow gamers to play "like a pro without spending like one," AMD's corporate VP and general manager, Mat Skynner, is confident in this release.


As for what exactly AMD thinks you should play, StarCraft II, League of Legends, DOTA 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive all made the grade, but we're certainly interested to see how more system taxing games perform on this processor such as Battlefield 4.


AMD claims that "gamers can enjoy 1080p gaming on some of the world's most popular games with the settings cranked up" so we're very interested to see what the real life benchmarks come back with.
