AMD A6-6310

AMD A6-6310

The AMD A6-6310 is a mobile quad-core SoC (codenamed "Beema") for entry-level devices and subnotebooks, which has been presented in April 2014. In addition to 4 CPU cores clocked at 1.8 - 2.4 GHz (boost clock), the 28 nanometer chip also integrates a Radeon R4 GPU, a single-channel DDR3L-1866 memory controller and the Southbridge with various I/O-ports.

Architecture

Both Beema (for notebooks) and Mullins (for tablets and compact subnotebooks, same die) are based on AMD's Puma+ architecture, which is the successor to the previous Jaguar design (Kabini and Temash APUs). Neither the performance per clock nor the feature set (including SSE up to 4.2, AVX and AES) have been modified. However, AMD managed to reduce the leakage current, enabling significantly higher (boost) clock speeds. This leads to a more responsive system and better overall performance. As its predecessor, the chip is manufactured in 28 nm, however by Globalfoundires instead of TSMC.

Performance

Thanks to its higher boost clock, the A6-6310 slightly outperforms the former A6-5200 (25 W, 2.0 GHz) in single thread tasks. The multi thread performance is quite similar and on par with Intel's Core i3-4010U. Overall, the A6-6310 should be sufficient for all daily workloads like Office, Internet browsing and multimedia.

Graphics

The SoC integrates a Radeon R4 GPU with 128 shaders, which is based on the GCN architecture and clocked at up to 800 MHz. On average, the graphics performance is comparable to Intel's HD Graphics 4200 or a dedicated Radeon HD 7470M . Only a few current games (as of 2014) are thus playable in low settings, but older and less demanding titels will run flawlessly.

Power Consumption

The power consumption of the entire SoC is rated at 15 watts. Thus, the APU is suitable for smaller subnotebooks.
