AMD launches new mobile Llano CPUs

AMD has quietly launched a refresh of its mobile Llano central processing units (CPUs) with seven new A4, A6, and A8 Llano processors for socket FS1. The new CPUs are all dual- and quad-core based and give a mild speed increase to existing processors using the same GPUs, L2 cache amount, TDP, and core stepping.

The refresh consists of four new processors with the M suffix that denotes a slightly lower clock speed and TDP compared to the full featured MX processors. Three of these, the A4-3320M, the A6-3420M, and the A8-3520M, are 100MHz bumps in base and turbo CPU clock speed over their predecessors, the A4-3300M, the A6-3400M, and the A8-3500M while GPU clocks and core counts remain unchanged. The new MX processors are similar – they are newer versions of the A4-3310MX, A6-3410MX, and A8-3530MX with 100MHz more clock speed with the same GPUs and 45W TDPs.

A total newcomer is the so called A4-3305M, a new low end processor with the same speed as the A4-3300M but with half the L2 cache and 33% fewer GPU cores, though the GPU clock has been increased to compensate.

The new processors will come to laptops in the next few months.
