AMD Releases Two New ULV Trinity APUs

By - Source: CPU World | B 17 comments

AMD has added two ultra low power APUs to its A-series processor lineup.

The existing quad-core A10-4655M and dual-core A6-4445M are joined by the new quad-core A8-4555M and the dual-core model A4-4355M.

According to AMD, the A8-4555M is clocked at 1.6 GHz/2.4 GHz with a TDP of 19 watt, while the A4-4355M is positioned as a new ULV entry-level SKU with a clock speed of 1.9 GHz/2.4 GHz and a TDP of 17 watt. The 4355M is differentiated from its 2.1 GHz/2.6 GHz 4455M dual core sibling through a scaled down graphics unit that only has 192 active cores instead of 256. The quad-core models feature 384 active graphics cores.

Firs spotted by CPU-World, AMD also quietly launched a new Bobcat-based C-series processor. The dual-core C-70 is placed above the current C-60, but features the exact specs with a clock speed of 1 GHz/1.33 GHz, 9 watt TDP, 1 MB L2 cache, 80 active graphics cores as well as a GPU clock speed of 276 MHz/400 MHz.

    C70... They need to update this chip with new architecture and a die shrink. They are much better suited to my needs than the atom, and I would like to have one in a windows 8 tablet.

    Whoa, that A8 pwns the E-450 at the same TDP...

    You know what, AMD needs to ANNOUNCE this stuff when they release it. OEM processors or not, if people don't know about it, then they don't buy it... *hint* *hint*

    ^ +1
    They must work on the Architecture rather than just kinda factory-OCed the chips.

    bobcat become garbage now.... thanks to A8. But too bad we wont get these APU on desktop for HTPC.

    They are doing that and the whole new platform next year on 28nm with tamesh and kabini. The cpu will have more than 2x the performance of bobcat with the same tpd. The gpu performance is expected to double as well.

    They are already working on their cores! Jaguar comes out next year with up to 4 cores and down to 4 watts! The only reason they didn't come out with something new this year is because they are already winning! They already have Intel in the bag when it comes to their Atom processor! Why come out with something better if you're already winning in that sector? It just doesn't make any business sense for AMD to come out with anything new at this time! Next year will be the year to look forward too, not only in AMD's lower end APU's, but their entire lineup!

    otacon72*yawn* Same old garbage...


    If that where the situation, People wouldn't buy their current products! It's just bad business! Just like Cell Phone companies! If you announce that you are coming out with a product better than the product you already have, You make stocks go down and you make people anxious for only that new product! Say goodbye to income on the products you are trying to sell right now! Why get this when I can get something better in a few months/weeks/days/ time? That is the reason these companies don't announce their product until they are ready to sell them!

    They have so many good low-voltage cpu's and no OEM doesn't seem to care.Why?

    Who said anything about better? While these new processors have lower TDPs, they won't perform as well because there are less graphics cores. The addition of these processors creates greater portfolio diversity for the A-series APUs.

    Well done AMD .the right APU for the economy and power rationalisation.
    Now when are you coming forth with the AM3+ cpu ?..:..:)

    I demand a Tablet with this A8-4555M CPU ... same as the i7/i5 coming Tablets power .. but it has super GPU and 4 cores...

    WHERE ARE THE TABLETS OF THIS ?
