So… I guess we’re finally first at something. =)
Thinking about switching over to AMD’s AM4 Platform but your momma won’t let you? Have no fear, the new APUs are here.
Priced even lower than the previous low end king, the Ryzen 3 1200, these APUs are made for users who do not wish to get a dedicated graphics card (for home theater PCs or eSports gaming). They were launched along with the other Bristol Ridge chips; 8 APUs and 3 CPUs in total.
We see these APUs as a gateway into the AM4 platform since AMD has released a plethora of options as far as processors are concerned. So you can map out your upgrade path however you like.
