AMD prepares E2-2000 APU
Last month AMD released two low-power Accelerated Processing Units (APU) for netbooks, entry-level notebooks and all-in-one computers. The faster processor from the two was E2-Series E2-1800, which had 50 MHz higher clock speed than its predecessor, E-450. The E2 chip also had better graphics performance, that was due to higher frequency of on-chip GPU. Fudzilla today revealed that even faster E2-2000 processor will be available later this year.
AMD E2-2000 will have the same dual-core "Zacate" design with 1 MB L2 cache, and HD 7340 integrated GPU as the E2-1800. The E2-2000 will be clocked at 1.75 GHz, that is 3% faster than the 1800 APU. Stock and turbo frequencies of on-chip GPU were also increased, to 538 MHz and 700 MHz respectively. The part will support DDR3-1333 memory, fit into 18 Watt thermal envelope, and will be produced in FT1 BGA package. According to Fudzilla, AMD E2-2000 will be released in the 4th quarter 2012.
