First Carrizo-L notebooks coming soon from HP
According to the Polish retailer, the HP notebook is listed as "HP Notebook TOFFFEE 1.0" and features budget-mainstream specs including an AMD A8-7410 APU, Radeon R5 M330 GPU with 2 GB VRAM, 6 GB DDR3 RAM, and a 15.6-inch WLED BrightView 1366 x 768 resolution display. The model is also expected to feature a DVD-RW drive and run Windows 8.1.
The AMD A8-7410 is built with a dynamic TDP ranging from 12 to 25 Watts, but should run on the full 25 Watts for a 15-inch notebook. All four cores are clocked up to 2.5 GHz and have 2 MB of L2 cache. Meanwhile, the integrated Radeon R5 GPU in the SoC is expected to be disabled and replaced with a dedicated Radeon R5 M330 with no Dual Graphics support. We expect processing power to be roughly above the quad-core Kabini A6-5200.
Since Carrizo-L is pin-compatible with existing Carrizo APUs, AMD should have an easier time expanding the latest Carrizo-L redesign to more mainstream and high-end configurations. Here's hoping that the current list price of 15000 Euros on zizako.pl is nothing more than a typo.
