AMD's combinatory APUs (CPU + IGP) just received a price drop, according to an email we received from the company today. In a press release, AMD noted that its flagship A10-7850K APU – equipped with R7 graphics – would be dropping to $143 MSRP from roughly $180. Other price drops include the A10-7700K at $123.

The new prices in AMD's Kaveri-generation APUs are as follows:

Pressure from Intel's G3258 ($70) budget CPU has likely contributed to the changes. In addition to the price cuts, AMD noted that buyers of the A10 APUs will receive one free game (chosen from Murdered, Thief, and Sniper Elite 3); the company indicated that Corel's Aftershot Pro software is also available for $5 in exchange for the game code. The following APUs are applicable to this offer:

  • A10-7850K
  • A10-7800
  • A10-7700
  • A10-6800K
  • A10-6790K

Aside from Kaveri, Richland and Trinity have also seen pricing updates that are shown below:

The company was quick to point-out that its forthcoming APUs will support DX12, OpenCL 2.0, and FreeSync.
