AMD partners with major manufacturers to launch 6th generation A-series on notebooks with Lenovo being one of the very first.

Let's not beat around the bush -- AMD has been having a tough time in the notebook market where systems sporting AMD hardware are seemingly becoming a thing of the past. Thus, when a major manufacturer like Lenovo announces a new model with AMD's latest 6th generation APU at Computex, the world will certainly take notice.

Lenovo will be one of AMD's first partners to launch Carrizo hardware and more are expected to come such as Dell, HP, Asus, and Toshiba, to name a few. The upcoming Flex 3 details are sparse, though we know it will be available by the end of this month for 400 to 700 Euros. AMD proudly shared GPU advantages between its A8 and A10 APUs and Intel Core ix solutions in raw draw performances.

Other tidbits include twice the battery runtime of Kaveri systems, improved GCN cores for up to 65 percent performance increase, and a reduced power demand of up to 40 percent. Be sure to check out our full overview of the Carrizo series and expect our usual reviews on the first Carrizo systems soon.

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.
