    Value King? That's still Trinity.

    Haswell was a disappointing upgrade to Ivy, but at least it only costs 4% more.
    Richland is a similarly minor improvement to Trinity but costs 19% more.

    (prices from Scan).

    I'd imagine that the prices will settle down somewhat though in the short term

    Yep it's too expensive at £115, they need to be nearer £100.

    Don't suppose you've got a 6700 hiding in the back room have you hexus? Be nice to see that compared to the 5800k & i3 - should have very similar performance but be much more impresive on the power draw side of things...

    I'm considering this rather than upgrading the ancient GPU in my son's C2D based PC.

    I see the A4-4000 at Scan has now sold out, it was a quid cheaper than the SimCity that it comes bundled with sells for on Amazon

    Thanks for the review. After seeing these results I might just keep my 2700k for another year.

    Re: Reviews - AMD A10-6800K (32nm Richland)

    I am shocked these aren't as popular as they should be, I have a C50 in my netbook and a A8-3870k in my htpc and both are perfect on value to performance.

    I was building a lot of 5800K systems for customers but I won't be spending an extra £20 on these because they just aren't worth it.

    Why would this cost any more to make than Trinity did?

    Well I guess it didn't design itself Now there's no way of knowing if it cost more or less to design than Trinity, but the Trinity cost has already been paid.

    There is no way it cost anything like the development costs of Trinity, this is just a minor revision compared to that.

    If Trinity managed to make back design costs priced at 20% less, then Richland can do the same.
