AMD to launch new mobile A-series APUs

Seven updated processors will be making their way to notebooks hopefully by early 2012

According to Hardcore Hardware, AMD has silently updated its lineup of mobile A-series Fusion chips with seven new upgrades. The upgrades are minor, however, and mostly includes bumps to clock speeds and Turbo Core (AMD’s version of Turbo Boost).

The new processors, according to the source, are the A8-3550MX, A8-3520M, A6-3430MX, A6-3420M, A4-330MX, A4-3320M and A4-3305M. The first four are quad-core chips, while the last three are dual-core. Depending on the processor, each will also be outfitted with an integrated Radeon HD 6620G, 6520G or 6480G GPU.

For more details, see the comparison table below. The new APUs are highlighted in red and sit adjacent to the ones they will be replacing. We expect new notebooks sporting the updated APUs to make an appearance in the coming weeks or months, possibly at CES 2012.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
