Several web sites have published new information on the upcoming AMD Carrizo line of APUs. The new chips are expected this summer and will be used in mobile computers and devices.
The AMD Carrizo-L line will consist of ultra low power processors with TDP of 10-25 watts. So far five models have been confirmed – E1-7010, E2-7110, A4-7210, A6-7310 and A8-7410. The first chip will have two Puma+ cores and 1 MB of L2 cache, while all other chips will have four Puma+ cores and 4 MB of L2 cache. There is no more information on the tech specs of these CPUs. The regular Carrizo models will have TDP of 15-35 watts and will have AMD Excavator cores. The expected chips are called FX-8800P, A10-8700P, A8-8600P and A6-8500P for the mainstream APU line and there will also be four APUs from the so-called PRO-series – PRO FX-8800B, PRO A10-8700B, PRO A8-8600B and PRO A6-8500B.
