The AMD A10-7700K is the second fastest model of the desktop Kaveri line-up at the begin of 2014. It is a quad-core processor that integrates two Steamroller modules with four integer cores and two FPU cores. The integrated AMD Radeon R7 graphics card integrates 384 cores (6 computes cores) and can be used seamlessly with the CPU thanks to HSA. As Richland, Kaveri supports DDR3-2133 main memory. The fast GPU however needs fast RAM and profits from overclocked (2400) dual-rank memory configurations.
Compared to the fastest A10-7850K, the 7700K is slower clocked (3.7 / 4 GHz versus 3.4 / 3.8 GHz) and the GPU offers less cores (8 versus 6 compute cores).
The TDP of the desktop APU is specified at 95 Watt and therefore 5 Watt below the Richland top models.
