AMD A-Series Trinity APUs Already Available at Amazon
The AMD A10-5800K APU 3.8Ghz Processor and many other new AMD A-series 'Trinity' APUs are up on Amazon before being officially released by the company! The AMD A10-5800K retail boxed processor (AD580KWOHJBOX) appears to be selling for $134.93 plus $7.99 shipping. This is a little higher than we expected, but prices are always higher before the launch due to price gouging. It is also listed at eight stores on Amazon, so it appears that nearly a dozen companies jumped the gun. The AMD A8-5600K 3.6Ghz Processor (AD560KWOHJBOX) is also listed on Amazon for $114.16 plus $6.44 shipping. Just make sure you order in one of the new socket FM2 motherboards as these processors use a new socket design. You can read our AMD A10-5800K APU preview here and we advise waiting until our full review comes out tomorrow before buying anything.
