Windows 7: AMD 7th Gen Bristol Ridge and AM4, up to A12-9800, B350/A320 Chipset

AMD 7th Gen Bristol Ridge and AM4, up to A12-9800, B350/A320 Chipset

Over the last two weeks, AMD officially launched their 7th Generation Bristol Ridge processors as well as the new AM4 socket and related chipsets. The launch was somewhat muted, as the target for the initial launch is purely to the big system OEMs and system integrators, such as Lenovo, HP, Dell and others – for users wanting to build their own systems, ‘Product-in-Box’ units (called PIBs) for self-build systems will come at the end of the year.

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit Build 7600

I gotta asume this has nothing to do with the current AMD A12 APU I've seen earlier (9700P IIRC), right?

Anyway this promises a lot!

A12-9700P is also Bristol Ridge and is a 7th gen APU too. This might put Intel in a big trouble. Intel does absurd things like putting entry-level iGPU in most consumer Processors while AMD puts those Radeon R7 in some entry level, mid range, and high-end APUs.
