AMD to replace A4-3400 by A4-3420

Advance Micro Devices is replacing the Llano A4 series APU ( Accelerated Processing Unit) by A4-3420. The newer A4-3420 will have slightly improved performance ( clock frequency bumps by 100 MHz or 3.7%) .  The A4-3420 and the A4-3400 belong to the Llano series of the desktop processors.
