The leaked processors have been sent over to AMD's testing facilities in India, with one batch being the quad-core APU prototypes with a 65W TDP, while the other batch are quad-core CPUs with the same 65W TDP. Both the CPUs and APUs were shipped in late October, with the new AM4-based motherboard shipping on November 16. You'll notice that the motherboard was shipping with "FOC" stamped on it, which stands for Full Operational Capacity - meaning the AM4 motherboard is ready for action.

 

AMD's new Bristol Ridge parts will allow for DDR4 support, with big performance-per-watt gains, and more.
