So, one quick retweet and 24 hours later, I got a direct message that I'd be receiving an AMD A8-3870K Black Edition APU to review. For those who haven't heard, AMD Advanced Processing Units, or APU's, bring together an AMD CPU and a Radeon Graphics Core onto the same die, and the A8-3870K is the top of the line, unlocked version designed for the PC enthusiast. Over the next month or so, I'll be blogging my build around this APU and then running it through its paces!
Check out my unboxing pictures after the break!
