The AMD A8-7410 is a mobile quad-core SoC (codenamed "Carrizo-L") for entry-level devices and subnotebooks, which has been presented in May 2015. In addition to 4 CPU cores clocked at up to 2.5 GHz (boost clock), the 28 nanometer chip also integrates a Radeon R5 GPU, a single-channel DDR3L-1866 memory controller and the southbridge with various I/O-ports. The TDP of the A8-7410 can be configured from 12 to 25 Watt. The predecessor AMD A8-6410 features similar specifications except the increased Boost clock (2.5 vs 2.4 GHz), maybe a changed base clock, the configurable TDP, and the new FP4 package (compatible to the mainstream Carrizo SoCs).
Carrizo-L, 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.
The processor performance depends on the configured TDP of the SoC. Set to 25 Watt, the CPU should be slightly faster than the old A8-6410 and therefore similar performance to a Haswell-based Pentium or ULV Core i3.
The integrated Radeon R5 should be similar to the Beema based Radeon R5 GPU with 128 shaders. Only a few current games (as of 2014) are thus playable in low settings, but older and less demanding titels should run flawlessly.
The power consumption of the entire SoC is rated at 12 to 25 watts. Thus, the APU is also suitable for small subnotebooks.
