AMD A6-5200

AMD A6-5200

The AMD A6-5200 is a mobile quad-core SoC for low-end laptops, which was presented in mid-2013. In addition to 4 CPU cores with a clock speed of 2.0 GHz (no Turbo), the 28-nanometer chip also integrates a Radeon HD 8400 GPU, a single channel DDR3(L)-1600 memory controller as well as the Southbridge with various I/O- ports.

Architecture

Both Kabini (for notebooks) and Temash (tablets and compact subnotebooks) are based on AMD's new Jaguar architecture, which replaces the previous Bobcat models (e.g. the E-350). According to our benchmarks, the performance per clock has been increased by about 15 percent. Furthermore, various modern instruction set extensions such as SSE up to version 4.2, AVX and AES are now supported. The finer 28-nanometer process from TSMC allows lower voltages and/or higher clock rates compared to Bobcat, as well as up to 4 CPU cores (Bobcat: 2 cores).

Performance

Depending on the application, the performance of the A6-5200 is somewhere between a Pentium 977 and Core i3-3227U. The 4 CPU cores provide good results in multi-threaded applications, but the performance per core is quite low. Nonetheless, the APU should be sufficient for all daily workloads like Office, Internet browsing and multimedia.

Graphics

The SoC integrates a Radeon HD 8400 GPU with 128 shaders, which is based on the GCN architecture and clocked at 600 MHz (no Turbo). On average, the HD 8400 matches a Radeon HD 6490M or faster versions of the Intel HD Graphics 4000. However, the processor may limit the performance in some recent games (as of 2013). Older and less demanding games should run fluently.

Power Consumption

The power consumption of the entire SoC is rated at 25 watts. Thus, the A6-5200 is suitable for 14-inch notebooks or bigger.
