AMD A8-6410

AMD A8-6410

The AMD A8-6410 is a mobile quad-core SoC (codenamed "Beema") for entry-level devices and subnotebooks, which has been presented in spring 2014. In addition to 4 CPU cores clocked at 2.0 - 2.4 GHz (boost clock), the 28 nanometer chip also integrates a Radeon R5 GPU, a single-channel DDR3L-1866 memory controller and the Southbridge with various I/O-ports. Besides the slightly higher base clock (2.0 instead of 1.8 GHz), the technical data and therefore the performance is almost identical to the A6-6310 APU.

Architecture

Both Beema (for notebooks) and Mullins (for tablets and compact subnotebooks, same die) are based on AMD's Puma+ architecture, which is the successor to the previous Jaguar design (Kabini and Temash APUs). Neither the performance per clock nor the feature set (including SSE up to 4.2, AVX and AES) have been modified. However, AMD managed to reduce the leakage current, enabling significantly higher (boost) clock speeds. This leads to a more responsive system and better overall performance. As its predecessor, the chip is manufactured in 28 nm.

Performance

In single thread tasks, the A8-6410 is clearly faster than the former A6-5200 (25 W, 2.0 GHz), but just slightly ahead in multi thread benchmarks. Overall, the APU offers a performance similar to a Haswell-based Pentium or Core i3 (ULV). Nonetheless, the A8-6410 will be sufficient for all daily workloads like Office, Internet browsing and multimedia.

Graphics

The SoC integrates a Radeon R5 GPU with 128 shaders, which is based on the GCN architecture and clocked at up to 800 MHz. On average, the graphics performance is similar to Intel's HD Graphics 4200 or a dedicated Radeon HD 7470M. Only a few current games (as of 2014) are thus playable in low settings, but older and less demanding titels should run flawlessly.

Power Consumption

The power consumption of the entire SoC is rated at 15 watts. Thus, the APU is suitable for smaller subnotebooks.
