AMD A8-Series A8-3530MX - AM3530HLX43GX
AMD A8-3530MX microprocessor, aimed at mid-class / high-performance mainstream notebooks with rich graphics capabilities, is the fastest from the first three members of "A8-Series for Notebooks" family. The A8-Series family, as well as less powerful A4- and A6-Series, are part of "Sabine" mobile platform, that was launched in June 2011. All A4, A6 and A8 processors are based on newly announced 32nm Llano core, and are marketed by AMD as Accelerated Processor Units or APUs.
The AMD A8-3530MX is built on tweaked "Stars" (K10) micro-architecture, and it has four CPU cores with 128 KB level 1 and 1 MB level 2 caches, dedicated to each core. The APU runs at 1.8 GHz, and supports the same technologies as previous generation of K10 microprocessors: AMD 64, Virtualization, and instruction set extensions up to SSE3 and SSE4A. New feature, implemented on the 3530MX, is a Turbo Core technology. If the APU operates within thermal limits, and have some CPU cores idle, this feature may boost operating frequency of active core(s) up to 2.5 GHz.
Another new feature in the AMD A8-3530MX is a high-performance Radeon HD 6620G Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), integrated together with the CPU cores. The GPU runs at 444 MHz, has 400 shader units, and provides 3D graphics performance, close to performance of discreet video cards. In non-graphical applications, the shader units can be used for highly parallel calculations. In this case, the combined power of 400 shaders may be up to 30 times higher than the performance of four processor cores.
In addition to CPU cores and the GPU, the AMD 3530MX contains the following components:
Compared to previous generation of "Danube" mobile processors,
low-power features on the AMD A8-3530MX were greatly improved. Like
older models, this APU has several low-power states. In addition to
this, it incorporates a handful of low-level enhancements, such as
power gating. This technique is used to turn off power to one or more
CPU cores, graphics unit, and other chip components, thus considerably
reducing power consumption when those components are idle. Thermal
Design Power of the A8-3530MX is 45 Watt. This processor is produced
in a PGA package, compatible with Socket FS1 motherboards.

AMD launches A-Series APUs for Notebooks
Jun 15, 2011: AMD yesterday announced new 2011 AMD Notebook Platform, that includes seven dual-core and quad-core A-Series microprocessors, codenamed "Llano". The new processors are marketed by AMD as Accelerated Processing Units (APU), and, in addition of retaining the full functionality of CPUs from previous generation of mobile AMD "Danube" platform, add extensive video and graphics processing capabilities.
Details of mobile Llano A-Series CPUs surface on AMD website
Jun 12, 2011: In May, we published specifications of forthcoming mobile A-Series microprocessors with integrated graphics, marketed by AMD as Accelerated Processing Units (APU). At the launch, there will be 7 dual- and quad-core SKUs, clocked from 1.5 GHz to 2.1 GHz, and reaching as high as 2.6 GHz in Turbo Core mode. Two days ago "2011 AMD Notebook Platform" page, was updated with information of these models.
Details of AMD Llano mobile CPU lineup
May 25, 2011: Earlier this week DonanimHaber published details of forthcoming AMD mobile "Llano" microprocessors from "Sabine" platform. Based on their information, the mobile line-up will be comprised of four families, targeting different sectors of the mobile market: high-performance A8-Series, mid- to high-performance A6-Series, budget and mid-class A4-Series, and entry-level E2-Series.
Details emerge on AMD A8-3530MX Llano CPU
May 17, 2011: As you may already know, later this year AMD is going to introduce LLano microprocessor core, that will be used in both desktop and mobile markets. The Llano core is a 32nm shrink of current K10 (Stars) core, and, in addition to features, we've become accustomed on Athlon II and Phenom II lines of CPUs, it will also integrate Radeon 6000 series graphics. Yesterday, DonanimHaber disclosed details of mobile processor A8-3530MX, based on Llano core.
