AMD unveiled a full line of new APUs at this year's CES, namely the Temash and Kabini processors, and we're finally seeing one of the duo. Acer has teamed up with AMD in producing the new Aspire V5-122 ultraportable, which is the first to pack the Temash APU on the inside.
The device leaked through various online retailers where it's currently listed as "coming soon" and will be available with either an A4-1200 APU with a pair of 1.0 GHz cores, or an A6-1450 APU which packs 4 cores with speeds ranging from 1.0 - 1.4 GHz. As usual, AMD's APUs come with graphics integrated on the processor directly, and the pair will feature a Radeon HD 8180G and 8280G respectively.
Outside of the APU differences, the Aspire V5-122 features an 11.6" IPS touchscreen panel, 2GB of RAM (with a DIMM slot available) and hard drives ranging from 320-500 GB in size. The device lasts around 5 hours per charge on its 30Wh battery, but another 27Wh battery can be tacked on. No official release date has been set, but the Aspire V5-122 should eventually retail in the range of 400 euros.
