The characteristics of this processor are very close to the A6-1450. AMD A4-1350 unlike its competitors has four core operating frequency of 1.0 GHz and 4 MB cache in the second level. Integrated Graphics Radeon HD 8210 has 128 shader cores and supports DirectX 11.1. Integrated memory controller supports DDR3-1066 memory. M Maximum flash value TDP A4-1350 is 8 watts, the reality in the performance of simple tasks processor consumes about 3 watts of power. Thus, the battery life of devices based on this processor can be about a day. The chip is a serious competitor to Intel’s solutions in this class.
Shipments of processors A4-1350 will begin in October this year.
