AMD FX-7600P

AMD FX-7600P

The quad-core AMD FX-7600P is a mid-range processor based on the Kaveri architecture. It was revealed in June 2014 for notebooks and is manufactured by GlobalFoundries using a 28 nm SHP process. In addition to having two CPU modules for a total of four integer cores clocked at 2.7 - 3.6 GHz, the AMD chip also integrates a Radeon R7 GPU clocked at up to 686 MHz with 512 GCN shaders and a dual-channel DDR3-2133 memory controller.

Architecture 

Kaveri is the successor to the 2013 Richland architecture (e.g. A10-5750M). The revised CPU cores, codenamed Steamroller, represent the third generation of the module-based Bulldozer design. A number of major changes include modified decoders (now one per integer core), optimized branch prediction, and increased L1 I-cache from 64 KB to 96 KB per module. These revisions boost the performance per clock slightly over a similarly clocked Richland APU. For more details about the AMD Kaveri architecture, see our detailed analysis here:

Analysis of the AMD Kaveri Notebook Platform

Performance 

According to early benchmarks, the FX-7600P offers a CPU performance level similar to the Ivy Bridge-based Intel Core i3-3110M. While the FX-7600P takes the lead in many multi-threaded benchmarks, the Core i3 has superior single-threaded performance. Overall, the FX-7600P will be sufficient for multitasking daily workloads (Office, Internet browsing, multimedia) as well as more demanding programs.

Graphics

The Radeon R7 (Kaveri) GPU of the FX-7600P features a core clock of up to 686 MHz and 512 shader units. Since the GPU is based on AMD's GCN 1.1 architecture, both DirectX 11.2 "Tier 2" and Mantle are supported. Furthermore, the GPU can be used for general purpose computing in various applications, such as Adobe Photoshop via the OpenCL API. 

In terms of 3D performance, the GPU benefits from its high raw computational power and memory support up to DDR3-2133. Thus, the Radeon R7 is just slightly behind Intel's Iris Pro Graphics 5200 and roughly on par with a dedicated GeForce GT 730M. As of Q2 2014, it is one of the fastest integrated notebook graphics solutions that can handle many current games at low or medium settings at WXGA resolution.

Power Consumption

The power consumption of the entire APU is rated at 35 Watts, which is similar to other competing mid-range models. As a result, the FX-7600P is best suited for 14-inch notebooks or larger.
