AMD to launch new mobile A-series APUs
According to Hardcore Hardware, AMD has silently updated its lineup of mobile A-series Fusion chips with seven new upgrades. The upgrades are minor, however, and mostly includes bumps to clock speeds and Turbo Core (AMD’s version of Turbo Boost).
The new processors, according to the source, are the A8-3550MX, A8-3520M, A6-3430MX, A6-3420M, A4-330MX, A4-3320M and A4-3305M. The first four are quad-core chips, while the last three are dual-core. Depending on the processor, each will also be outfitted with an integrated Radeon HD 6620G, 6520G or 6480G GPU.
For more details, see the comparison table below. The new APUs are highlighted in red and sit adjacent to the ones they will be replacing. We expect new notebooks sporting the updated APUs to make an appearance in the coming weeks or months, possibly at CES 2012.
