AMD releases first Kabini AM1 APUs

Advanced Micro Devices has launched the first Kabini APUs designed for the recently released socket AM1 platform. There are four models at the moment that belong to the Athlon and Sempron APU families. Despite this difference the new chips share quite a few hardware specs and feature Jaguar CPU cores as well as Graphics Core Next architecture for the GPU integrated in the chip itself.

The first Kabini chips are in fact a complete computational system on their own. They come with two or four computational cores, on-chip graphics, cache memory, a memory controller, support for SATA 3.0, two USB 3.0 ports, eight USB 2.0 ports, PCI-E 2.0 graphics and three video outputs – DisplayPort, HDMI and VGA. The chips are also cheap as the most expensive one of them costs just USD 59. Here’s a quick overview:

  • AMD Athlon 5350 – quad-core, 2.05 GHz, 128 stream processors at 600 MHz, support for DDR3-1600 memory, 2 MB L2 cache, TDP of 25 watts, USB 59;
  • AMD Athlon 5150 – quad-core, 1.60 GHz, 128 stream processors at 600 MHz, support for DDR3-1600 memory, 2 MB L2 cache, TDP of 25 watts, USB 49;
  • AMD Sempron 3850 – quad-core, 1.30 GHz, 128 stream processors at 450 MHz, support for DDR3-1600 memory, 2 MB L2 cache, TDP of 25 watts, USB 39;
  • AMD Sempron 2650 – dual-core, 1.45 GHz, 128 stream processors at 400 MHz, support for DDR3-1333 memory, 1 MB L2 cache, TDP of 25 watts, USB 34;
