AMD Will Release Brazos E-450 Fusion Processor Soon

AMD Fusion E-450Fudzilla reports that the AMD E-450 processor will bring more powerful graphics and a  slightly higher CPU clock speed to the table, while keeping the same 18W  TDP.  The E-350 is a 1.6 GHz dual core chip that uses Radeon HD 6310  graphics. The new AMD E-450 will be a 1.65 GHz dual core processor with  faster Radeon HD 6320 graphics. Both chips are capable of handling  DirectX 11 graphics and 1080p HD video playback.

The new chip will also feature Turbo Core technology which can  overclock a single core while underclocking the other to improve  performance on tasks that don’t really take advantage of multi-threading  anyway without greatly sacrificing battery life. The GPU clock speed  will also jump from 508 MHz to 600 MHz when Turbo Core kicks in.

The AMD E-series processors are designed to be energy efficient  chips, offering decent battery life and low power consumption. So don’t  expect to see these processors in bleeding edge computers anytime soon.  Instead, the new chips will likely continue to show up in budget laptops  with 11 to 15 inch displays.

There’s no word on the release date for the new AMD E-450.
