The AMD E2-3000 is a mobile dual-core SoC for low-end subnotebooks, which was presented in mid-2013. In addition to 2 CPU cores with a base clock speed of 1.65 GHz (no turbo), the 28-nanometer chip also integrates a Radeon HD 8280 GPU, a single-channel DDR3L-1600 memory controller as well as the Southbridge with various I/O- ports.
Both Kabini (for notebooks) and Temash (tablets and compact subnotebooks) are based on AMD's new Jaguar architecture, which replaces the previous Bobcat models (e.g. the E-350). According to AMD, the performance per clock has been increased by about 15 percent. Furthermore, various modern instruction set extensions such as SSE up to version 4.2, AVX and AES are now supported. The finer 28-nanometer process from TSMC allows lower voltages and/or higher clock rates compared to Bobcat, as well as up to 4 CPU cores (Bobcat: 2 cores).
Depending on the application, the performance of the E2-3000 is somewhere between a Pentium 2129Y and a Celeron 867. For office and multimedia tasks, the E2-3000 has sufficient power; however, it will quickly reach its limits in more demanding applications or multitasking.
The SoC integrates a Radeon HD 8280 GPU with 128 shaders, which is based on the GCN architecture. The core is clocked at 450 MHz (no turbo). On average, the HD 8280 places slightly below the HD Graphics 4000 or a dedicated GeForce GT 520M. Only a few recent games (as of 2013) are therefore playable. However, older and less demanding games will run fluently.
The power consumption of the entire SoC is rated at 15 watts. Thus, the E2-3000 is best suited for 12-inch notebooks or larger.
