AMD E1-1500 vs AMD E-300
AMD E1-1500► remove from comparison
The AMD E1-1500 (codename Zacate) is a dual core processor for small notebooks and netbooks. It offers a relatively powerful integrated graphics card and a single channel DDR3-1333 memory controller. Compared to the old E1-1200, which is based on the same chip, the E1-1500 offers an 80 MHz higher CPU and 29 MHz higher GPU clock rate.
Inside the E1-1500 two Bobcat cores can access 512KB level 2 cache per core. In comparison to the Atom processors, the Bobcat architecture uses an "out-of-order" execution and is therefore faster at the same clock speed. However, the performance is far worse than similar clocked Penryn (Celeron) or Danube (Athlon II) cores. On average the cpu performance of the E1-1500 is a bit below an Athlon X2 L310 at 1.2 GHz.
The integrated Radeon HD 7310 graphics card offers 80 shaders and an UVD3 video processor. Compared to the slow GMA 3150 in the Atom processors, the HD7310 offers a lot more performance and is about as fast as the Nvidia ION graphics solution. In the E1-1500 the 7310 is clocked at 529 MHz and therefore not much different to the HD 6310 (488 - 500 MHz depending on the APU).
The power consumption is rated with a TDP of 18 W by AMD. That's similar to Intels (faster) Ivy and Sandy Bridge ULV-CPUs.
AMD E-300► remove from comparison
The AMD E-300 (codename Zacate) is a low-end dual-core processor designed for the smaller laptops and netbooks. The E-series processor has a relatively fast iGPU and a single channel DDR3-1066 memory controller.
An E-300 has two Bobcat processor cores running at 1.3 GHz, each with the access to 512 KB of Level 2 cache (1 M in total). In comparison to the Atom processors, the Bobcat architecture uses an out-of-order execution and is therefore faster at the same clock speed. However, the performance is far worse than similar clocked Penryn (Celeron) or Danube (Athlon II) cores. On average, the CPU performance of the E-300 is a little better than the Athlon X2 L310 (1.2 GHz).
The Radeon HD 6310 iGPU has 80 unified shaders and an UVD3 video processing engine. The iGPU has no trouble outshining the Intel GMA 3150 in the Atom processors, and it does not lag behind the Nvidia ION, either. The Radeon has support for HDMI 1.4a video output.
This APU has a default TDP of 18 W, meaning an active cooling solution is a must.
The AMD E-300 is manufactured on a 32 nm process leading to really, really low, as of 2022, energy efficiency.
