The AMD APU A10-7850k has 4 cores that run at a clock speed of 3.7GHz.
It has an L2 cache size of 4096MB.
|Cores||4||More cores means more threads and therefore more processes can be run simultaneously|
|Speed||3.7GHz||Clock frequency indicates processor speed, but is only reliable in comparisons between CPUs of the same family|
|Codename||Kaveri||The code name given by the manufacturers|
|Release Date||14 Jan 2014||The more recent the release, the more likely the CPU will receive up-to-date manufacturer support|
|TDP||95W||The lower the TDP, the less power the CPU requires to run and thus the more efficient it is and the less heat it creates|
|L2 Cache||4096KB||After L1 cache, L2 is utilized for slower (but still very fast) data access|
|Lithography||28nm||The smaller the lithographic technology used, the less power is required to run the CPU, and the less heat is created during intense use|
|CPU Socket||Socket FM2+||The motherboard socket and CPU socket should match to indicate the CPU is compatible with the motherboard and will fit into it|
The CPU is under a year old, meaning it should be based on recent technologies and manufacturer support should almost certainly still be available.
Created with lithographic technology sized at 28 nanometers, the APU A10-7850k is built for extreme speeds and efficiency, and with a Thermal Design Power of 95W the amount of power necessary to run is not excessive.
