The new chips are manufactured on 32 nm technology and feature either two or four cores that run between 2.1 GHz and 2.9 GHz of nominal clock speed, updated AMD Turbo Core technology, L2 cache that reaches 4 MB and an integrated AMD Radeon 8000-series graphics processing unit. The GPUs come with 128-384 stream processors and run at 720 MHz, support DirectX 11 and AMD’s Eyefinity technology. A final feature is TDP of 35 watts for all chips.
