The AMD E1-7010 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 2 CPU cores clocked at up to 1.5 GHz (boost clock), the 28 nanometer chip also integrates a Radeon GPU, a single-channel DDR3L-1333 memory controller and the southbridge with various I/O-ports.
The predecessor AMD E1-6010 features similar specifications except the slower clock speed (at least boost, as the 6010 clocks at 1.35 GHz without boost), and the new FP4 package (compatible to the mainstream Carrizo SoCs). The faster Carrizo-L SoCs (like the E2-7110) offer 4 CPU cores and a configurable TDP.
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.
Due to the higher core frequency, the 7010 should be faster than the old E1-6010. Still, the SoC is only suited for very basic tasks like web surfing (not many tabs), word processing and video playback.
The integrated Radeon should be similar to the Beema based Radeon R2 GPU with 128 shaders. Only a few current games (as of 2014) are thus playable in low settings (see above link for gaming benchmarks). Some games may also be limited by the 2 cores at low frequency.
The power consumption of the entire SoC is rated at 10 watts. Thus, the APU is also suitable for small subnotebooks and can be used without an active fan.
