Computex 2015 | Lenovo to launch Flex 3 with AMD A-Series APUs by the end of June
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.
