AMD Announces New Elite Quad-Core A4-1350 APU

Amidst all the IDF news, AMD is announcing a little something of its own. The company today revealed a new addition for its 2013 Elite Mobility line of processors. Aimed at small screen touch notebooks, tablets, and hybrids, the quad-core A4-1350 is the second quad-core APU in AMD's Elite Mobility line and carries estimated power draw of 3 watts.

AMD's Elite Mobility series combines its "Jaguar" x86 CPU cores with AMD Radeon HD 8000 Series graphics. The A4-1350 packs AMD's A4-1350, Radeon HD 8210, an 8W TDP, 1GHz CPU clock, a 300MHz GPU clock, 128 Radeon cores, 4MB of L2 cache, and max DDR3 1066.

"Following the tremendous reception from customers to the launch of our 2013 Elite Mobility APUs, we are excited to strengthen our portfolio with the addition of the A4-1350," said Bernd Lienhard, corporate vice president, AMD Client Business Unit. "With quad-core performance, AMD Radeon HD graphics and long battery life, the A4-1350 is an ideal solution for new form factors like hybrid and convertible PCs."

The A4-1350 is shipping in October for devices measuring 13 inches and under.

  • Looks to be comparable to a 5450, very impressive when you think about it. I'd be happy with a cheap tablet with this installed. Especially with Windows.

    How is it different from the a6 1250, which seems to have the same specs?

    3W estimated (i.e. like Intel's Scenario Design Power), 8W Thermal Design Power.

    Adverts? AMD? Surely some mistake? :P

    I imagine that the bandwidth offered inside the two consoles will let those Jaguar cores stretch their legs and outpace any PC variant of Kabini (with the possible exception of the A6-5200's in lightly threaded tasks). So, it'd be mismarketing anyway.

    TDP and Power Draw aren't exactly the same thing. TDP is for cooling purposes. Basically, the cooler used on the A4-1350 has to be able to dissipate 8W of heat.
