AMD Announces 7000 Series Mobile APUs, Cuts Price of Desktop Chips

New APUs, new prices

AMD decided to shake things up at its 2015 Financial Analyst Day by announcing new AMD 7000 Series APUs for mobile systems (formerly codenamed Carrizo-L and part of the Carrizo platform in the 2015 AMD mobile APU family roadmap), new Radeon 300 Series desktop graphics cards for OEMs, new Radeon M300 Series mobile graphics, and price cuts for existing A-Series desktop APUs.

Starting with the new Carrizo-L parts, here’s a look:

  • AMD A8-7410: 4 cores, up to 2.5GHz, 2MB cache, 1866MHz max DDR3, 12-25W
  • AMD A6-7310: 4 cores, up to 2.4GHz, 2MB cache, 1600MHz max DDR3, 12-25W
  • AMD A4-7210: 4 cores, up to 2.2GHz, 2MB cache, 1600MHz max DDR3, 12-25W
  • AMD E2-7110: 4 cores, up to 1.8GHz, 2MB cache, 1600MHz max DDR3, 12-15W
  • AMD E1-7010: 2 cores, up to 1.5GHz, 1MB cache, 1333MHz max DDR3, 10W

These are all System-on-Chip (SoC) designs that combine CPU, GPU, AMD Secure Processor technology, and system I/O on a single chip. AMD intends for these SoCs to end up in laptops and all-in-one systems.

The company didn’t talk too much about its new M300 Series and 300 Series Radeon graphics, though it did list new prices for existing for A-Series desktop APUs. Here they are:

  • AMD A10-7850K: $127
  • AMD A10-7800: $127
  • AMD A10-7700K: $117
  • AMD A8-7650K: $95
  • AMD A8-7600: $85
  • AMD A6-7400K: $60
  • AMD A4-7300: $42

These are suggested retail prices, meaning it’s still up to individual vendors to price them accordingly.
