AMD A6-3410MX APU is one of the first two members of "A6-Series for Notebooks" family of mobile CPUs. The processor is a part of Sabine mobile platform, and it's targeted at mid-class mainstream notebooks. This model was released in June 2011 along with 6 other A4, A6 and A8-Series mobile chips.
The A6-3410MX is based on Llano core, that makes use of improved K10 micro-architecture on 32nm process. This microprocessor has four CPU cores, operating at 1.6 GHz. Each CPU core features dedicated 128 KB level 1 and 1 MB level 2 caches. The APU supports the same K10 technologies and instruction set extensions, as Athlon II and Phenom II mobile chips. These include AMD64 and Virtualization, and SIMD extensions up to SSE3 and SSE4A. New feature on this A6-Series processor is a Turbo Core technology, that can boost operating frequency up to 2.3 GHz when some cores are idle.
Another new feature in the AMD A6-3410MX is an integrated graphics processing unit (GPU), which has much higher performance than integrated GPUs in previous generations of AMD mobile chipsets. The on-chip Radeon HD 6520G graphics unit is clocked at 400 MHz, and it accommodates 320 shader units. In 3D graphics applications, the GPU can match performance of discreet video cards. Non-graphics programs can use the shader units for highly parallel calculations. In this case, the combined power of all shaders may result in an order of magnitude better performance compared to the performance of CPU cores.
In addition to processor cores and the GPU, the AMD 3410MX includes a couple of other components:
- Universal Video Decoder 3.0 is used for acceleration of standard and HD video decoding.
- On-chip DDR3 memory controller provides interface to system RAM. The controller operates in dual-channel mode, and it supports standard-voltage memory with data rates up to 1600 MHz, and low-voltage memory with data rates up to 1333 MHz.
The AMD A6-3410MX employs a number of low-level enhancements, that
significantly reduce processor's power consumption. For instance,
power gating enhancements allows the APU to save power by switching
off idle graphics processing unit, UVD, and/or one or more CPU cores.
The microprocessor also supports several low-power states. Thermal
Design Power of the A6-3410MX is 45 Watt, and that number also
includes power, dissipated by the GPU and other chip components. This
model is manufactured in a PGA package, compatible with Socket FS1
