CES 2014 | AMD reveals specs of new Kabini chips for tablets and laptops
AMD has a lot of newbies to show off at CES these days, including an answer to NVIDIA's G-Sync or the upcoming Kaveri APUs for desktop computers, but the Texas-based semiconductor company also revealed the specs of a few new Kabini chips for tablets and ultrabooks. These processors will receive more attention from AMD in the near future, most likely at MWC 2014.
Just like the Kabini SoCs already revealed by AMD during last year, the new low-power parts come with support for DirectX 11 and Unified Video Decoder 3. Below are the main specs of three new Kabini chips that have just been detailed by AMD:
- A4-5100: 1.55 GHz, 4 cores, 15 W TDP, 2 MB L2 cache, Radeon HD 8330 GPU @ 497 MHz
- E1-2200: 1.05 GHz, 2 cores, 9 W TDP, 1 MB L2 cache, Radeon HD 8210 GPU @ 300 MHz
- E2-3800: 1.30 GHz, 4 cores, 15 W TDP, 2 MB L2 cache, Radeon HD 8280 GPU @ 450 MHz
These upcoming processors are expected to power Windows 8 and Android tablets, ultraportable laptops and convertibles. Hopefully they will get more attention from manufacturers than the models already launched, as only a few Kabini-powered devices have been released so far.
