AMD has a lot of newbies to show off at CES these days, including an answer to NVIDIA's G-Sync or the upcoming Kaveri APUs for desktop computers, but the Texas-based semiconductor company also revealed the specs of a few new Kabini chips for tablets and ultrabooks. These processors will receive more attention from AMD in the near future, most likely at MWC 2014.

Just like the Kabini SoCs already revealed by AMD during last year, the new low-power parts come with support for DirectX 11 and Unified Video Decoder 3. Below are the main specs of three new Kabini chips that have just been detailed by AMD:

  • A4-5100: 1.55 GHz, 4 cores, 15 W TDP, 2 MB L2 cache, Radeon HD 8330 GPU @ 497 MHz
  • E1-2200: 1.05 GHz, 2 cores, 9 W TDP, 1 MB L2 cache, Radeon HD 8210 GPU @ 300 MHz
  • E2-3800: 1.30 GHz, 4 cores, 15 W TDP, 2 MB L2 cache, Radeon HD 8280 GPU @ 450 MHz

These upcoming processors are expected to power Windows 8 and Android tablets, ultraportable laptops and convertibles. Hopefully they will get more attention from manufacturers than the models already launched, as only a few Kabini-powered devices have been released so far.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
