In an effort to offer mainstream component system builders, upgraders, and DIY enthusiasts an opportunity to grab a new A-Series APU at a more attractive price, AMD has announced a pretty hefty price reduction. It could be the perfect time to grab a 12 compute core (4 CPU + 8 GPU) A-Series APU with HSA features (hUMA/hQ), full hardware support for DirectX 11.2, close to the metal API support (AMD Mantle), AMD TrueAudio, OpenCL 1.2, and OpenGL 4.4. Future plans include support for DX12, OpenCL 2.0, and Project FreeSync.
The new pricing is permanent and should be in effect shortly, if not already in place at some eTailers.
