Fusion C-60, E-300 and E-450 APUs coming this September
The latest Fusion Zacate and Ontario chipsets from the Brazos platform, the C-60, E-300 and E-450, are about to make their way to the notebook market.
First up, the dual-core C-60 will be the direct successor to the C-50, but with the AMD Turbo Core feature. This allows temporary increases in processor speeds and is most similar to the Turbo Boost feature found in many Intel Sandy Bridge CPUs. The Turbo Core ability is available in the Fusion Llano series as well. Upcoming notebooks sporting the C-60 are still unknown.
Next, the Fusion dual-core E-300 will run at 1.3GHz with 1MB L2 cache and, similarly to the E-350 and E-450, consume only up to 18 watts. The upcoming 17.3-inch Acer Aspire 7250 is expected to ship with this APU as an option.
Meanwhile, the Fusion dual-core E-450 will be the direct upgrade to the E-350 and will run at 1.65GHz with 1MB L2 cache. According to CPU World, the E-450 will also include the Turbo Core ability to temporarily increase processor speeds. The upcoming Dell Inspiron M102z, Asus K53BY and HP Pavilion G4 will all supposedly carry the E-450 as an option.
The C-60, E-300 and E-450 are expected to launch this September while the related notebooks should follow soon after.
