AMD's "Kaveri" APU has finally been sighted in the flesh according to news site Hermitage Akihabara, with pictures of the top-end model to match. The report shows the A10-7850K, an unlocked dual-module/four-thread variant believed to be operating at 3.7GHz (4GHz Turbo) and under a 95W TDP envelope, and also mentions the A10-7750K with a Turbo mode of 3.7GHz and case of 3.8GHz. Limited benchmark results are also presented. Currently far less is known about the GPU portion apart from it being a discrete-class Radeon 28nm GCN part.

A tentative launch date of January 14th is mentioned, as is the possibility of a Battlefield 4 retail bundle. It's likely that despite the updated 28nm GCN architecture of the GPU Mantle will be required to gain reasonable frame rates in Battlefield 4 and other upcoming Gaming Evolved titles. From the CPU standpoint however the A10 Kaveri's should be more than able to cope with the demands of DICE's somewhat troubled FPS title.

Kaveri APU's will be compatible with existing AMD FM2+ motherboards, with a roll out of motherboards refreshed to the FM3 socket standard at or soon after the new chip.
