New AMD A4-3450 APU Surfaces
AMD is apparently quietly adding a new SKU to its Llano processor lineup.
CPU World found the A4-3450 APU in Biostar's supported processor list. The 65 watt APU has a clock speed of 2.9 GHz and seems to join the 2.8 GHz A4-3420 as an OEM-only part. The A4-3450 is unlikely to show up in retail.
The publication noted that AMD recently added specifications for A4-4300M Trinity APU to its official product database. The dual-core mobile processor runs at 2.5 GHz and integrates AMD's Radeon HD 7420 graphics engine.
The release of another Llano APU is somewhat surprising , but there is a good chance that AMD has a pile of Llano processors still in stock, especially since the company recently noted that sales have been rather weak lately. There is a good chance that AMD is now using remaining and possibly additional Llano SKUs to gain traction in the lower end of the processor market.
