AMD A4-4300M APU is shipped in HP notebooks
Last month AMD launched first Accelerated Processing Units (APU), based on new "Trinity" core. Initial lineup consisted of 5 mobile chips, including 2 ultra-low voltage models, and 3 CPUs for mainstream notebooks. It appears that AMD is already shipping another mobile "Trinity" APU, A4-4300M. The processor was spotted in specifications of HP ProBook 4545s and Probook 6475b, and it can be ordered in any one of those notebooks:
According to HP website, the A4-4300M integrates 2 cores, 1 MB L2 cache and HD 7420G graphics unit. The processor runs at 2.5 GHz, or 200 MHz slower than introduced in May A6-4400M APU. A4-Series 4300M supports Turbo Core feature, which is also clocked 200 MHz lower than on the 4400M model, i.e. at 3 GHz. The specifications and order pages on the HP website do not include any extra details on the HD 7420G GPU. However, the known A4-4300M characteristics look identical to AMD R-268D embedded processor, therefore we suspect that the specs of the HD 7420G units will be similar, that is it will run at 470 MHz stock speed, with Turbo frequency reaching as high as 640 MHz. AMD A4-4300M will fit into 35 Watt thermal envelope, and, we presume, will be available in a micro-PGA package.
