7.1 Out of 10

AMD’s Richland APU lineup would get two new parts, the A10-6700T and A8-6500T.

A recent CPU compatibility list from MSI seems to have inadvertently revealed two additional “Richland” APUs, the A8-6500T and A10-6700T, which both feature quad-cores and will presumably have a low TDP as indicated by the “T” suffix.
