AMD 'Temash' Quad-Core SoC Spotted in Acer Aspire Laptop

AMD’s upcoming A6-1450 “Temash” SoC has been spotted powering the upcoming Acer Aspire V5-122P-0643 notebook. Though the product is no longer listed on Acer’s website, WCCFTech has posted a fairly extensive copy of the Aspire V5-122P-0643’s product page and the following screenshot.

As we’ve noted previously, the Temash A6-1450 SoC is a quad-core processor that is based on AMD’s 28 nm “Jaguar” architecture and features a base and turbo clock of 1.0 GHz and 1.4 GHz, respectively; a 2 MB L2 cache; and a TDP of just 4 – 6 W. The APU also includes a Radeon HD 8280 iGPU that is clocked at 300 MHz while idle and 500 MHz when under load, and it utilizes AMD’s NUMA (non-uniform memory access) architecture.

The Aspire V5-122P-0643 features an 11.6” Multi-touch LED display with an unspecified “HD resolution” (likely to be 1366 x 768), 2 GB of DDR3 memory, a 500 GB mechanical hard drive, and a 3-cell lithium-ion battery.

The Acer Aspire V5-122P-0643 was available for purchase from Acer.com for $499. Currently, it is unknown when the notebook will be back on sale.

    Well then how strong will Jaguar be if Temash is 1.4 GHz? 2+ GHz?!
    I hope so!

    A TDP of 4-6W? That's pretty impressive.
    The rest of it isn't nearly as astounding - here's hoping that full fledged jaguar chips are amazing.

    That's actually a really good price for a laptop of that caliber. Good for school work!

    idk, it looks pretty regular to me, Am. I wouldn't pay over $499 for it, anyway.

    Wait, so is Jaguar in the netbook performance range? Cause that TDP is ridiculously low!

    guys, this Temash chip is a far cry from the real Jaguar. keep in mind they had to drop the TDP down to as low as 4-6W. and who needs that in a plugged in PS4??? Unless AMD has gone mad, the real Jaguar in the PS4 would reasonably have a TDP of maybe 30-45W, so hopefully clocked in the 3+Ghz range?

    dudes, this is real jaguar. just like vishera has piledriver cores, this temash has jaguar cores. since last year AMD has marketed jaguar cores to be aimed at the tablet and ultrabook market. of course the ps4 will ave a better version of this architecture, but its not to say this isnt real jaguar.
    I wouldnt really pay 500 for an 11 inch laptop, but thats just personal preference. it really sounds like a great deal for students who want battery life and low weight. interested in seeing just how a low clock, low power quad core with dedicated-ish gpu will perform against others in the price.

    Might have to sell off my old Acer AO-722 netbook to get this baby. I really like the C-60 the netbook has - nice little low power chip that's able to handle a few games on the go, but what I do is just a bit much for the CPU portion. I hope Jaguar has a noticeable performance improvement over Bobcat. If so, with lower power consumption to boot, Tamesh will make a really interesting platform. I'm really excited.

    IIRC, in the leaked PS4 specs the CPU clock rate was 1.6GHz.

    You need to keep in mind that the PS4's APU is a single-die affair with most of the die area dedicated to the GPU so the APU will most likely be fabbed on a GPU-optimized process. This means a process optimized for massively parallel chips operating at relatively low clock rates. CPUs manufactured on such a process are unlikely to reach clock rates anywhere as high as CPUs fabbed on a clock-optimized process.

    Can't have everything.
