Next quarter AMD is going to introduce low-power microarchitecture, codenamed "Jaguar", that will be used by "Temash" and "Kabini" products. Temash APUs will target tablet and hybrids market, and Kabini processors will be aimed at netbooks, ultra-thin notebooks and AIO computers. Prior reports indicated that Kabini products will be branded as X2- and X4-Series, based on the number of cores. There will be also E1-Series SKUs, E1-3310 and E1-2210. While we can't confirm existence and features of these models, we discovered three new ones. The new APUs are E1-2100 and E1-2500, and one E2-Series SKU, dubbed E2-3000.
AMD E1-2100, E1-2500 and E2-3000 APUs will have 2 CPU cores and 1MB L2 cache, and will be manufactured on 28nm technology. E1-2500 and E2-3000 will have the same TDP, and E1-2100 will have presumably lower TDP. The processors will be produced in a BGA package. We believe that they will support standard "Jaguar" technologies, such as AES, F16C and AVX instructions, and bit manipulation instructions. Although we received information about these APUs from two different sources, the information was not complete, and we don't know clock speeds and the type of integrated GPU. The APUs are likely to replace E1-1500 and E2-2000 "Bobcat" processors, therefore we suspect that Kabini chips will be clocked similar to or higher than Bobcat counterparts.
