AMD’s Two Most Selling Socket AM3+ Chips Expected to be Bundled with Wraith Cooler
Back in February, AMD updated some of its existing AM3+ 8000 series FX processors with the brand new Wraith stock CPU cooler. These included two APUs, the A10 7890K and the A10 7870K, and one CPU, called the X4 880K. Now, the chip maker is reportedly bundling its Wraith cooling solution with even more of its desktop CPUs.
According to a report from Expreview, two socket AM3+ chips, the eight-core FX-8350 and the six-core FX-6350, will come bundled with Wraith, and could sell in special packages, likely at a tiny premium over packages with older cooling solution.
The FX-8350 is one of the most selling FX-series chips, with clock speeds ranging between 4.00 GHz and 4.20 GHz. This particlular chip, along with the FX-6350, has a TDP rated at just 125W.
Speaking of the Wraith, the new stock CPU cooler from AMD represents a significant improvement over its past stock heatsink solution. The Wraith cooler was extensively reviewed with the FX-8370, and appreciated for being far quieter than its predecessor, while still managing to move 35 per cent more air.
For reference, the Wraith CPU cooler runs at 39dBA which means it outputs one tenth the noise of the current stock cooler, the D3 cooler, which generates 51 dBA of noise. AMD claims this dramatic reduction in noise is achieved through the superior thermal dissipation capability of the Wraith.
Here’s the pricing list of all the processors after the new Wraith cooler:
- AMD FX 8370 Wraith – $199.99 USD
- AMD FX 8370 – $189.99 USD
- AMD A10-7860K – $117.99 USD
- AMD A8-7670K – $105.99 USD
- AMD A8-7650K – $95.99 USD
- AMD Athlon X4 870K – $89.99 USD
- AMD Athlon X4 860K – $79.99 USD
- AMD Athlon X4 845 – $69.99 USD
- AMD A10-7890K – $164.99 USD
- AMD A10-7870K – $139.99 USD
- AMD Athlon™ X4 880K – $94.99 USD
