The online Polish retailer has listed the first HP notebook with the upcoming AMD A8-7410 APU. The Carrizo SoCs are already available in China and are expected to arrive in Europe very soon.

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 is nothing more than a typo.
