AMD readying at least two Zacate parts

Written by Fudzilla staff


E350 and E240
X-bit labs has managed to score a few more details on AMD’s upcoming Zacate processors and the news keeps getting better.

AMD plans to launch two parts aimed at the low-power market, mainly desktops and thin clients. The Zacate E350 is dual-core part, while the E240 will feature a single core. Both pack DirectX 11 graphics with UVD 3.0 and a single channel DDR3 1333MHz memory controller.

As we reported earlier, the TDP of one of AMD’s prototypes shown off in to the press last week is 18W. The processor in question was clocked at 1.6GHz, while the integrated graphics are clocked at 500MHz.

Interestingly, X-bit is reporting that the Brazos platform will consist of a Zacate APU and Hudson D1 controller hub and it will feature a singly PCI Express 2.0 x4 and four PCIe x1 ports, along with a plain PCI bus, six SATA-300 ports and 14 USBs. There is no RAID or Gigabit Ethernet support.

Pretty decent for basic desktops and thins...

Impressive though AMD still needs to fix it's platform. What no PCIe x16 for possible External Graphics?
Anyway, this should easily beat out Intel's integrated graphics.

Given that these are Atom and i3 competitors, there's nothing to fix, XP.

With external graphics you just blew out the main advantage of these SKU's, which is power usage and low heat output.

UVD 3.0 as well? Wow!

If the 4K video acceleration support rumor, holds any ground, it will be a serious blow to the ego of the competition.

agreed, this is not the cpu you want for a gaming rig, so I don't see the point of PCIe x16. I'm going to get a ITX version, one stick of ram and install my tv tuner card. It should be simple, low power, and perfect for my needs.

I guess that makes it future proof, where can you get 4k video?

You have a point... Considering it's gonna pack HD 5500 series graphics anyway, there's no point in PCIe x16... It should be more than enough for video playback, even some casual gaming, like RTS and MMORPG titles

What does UVD 3.0 consist of? And somewhat besides the point, will AMD ever fix the problem with playing H.264 SD video with artifacts?

On TPU they tested the crossfire scaling and x4 got 95% of x16 on a HD5870. So if that beast managed to use x4 decent, I agree.

Can't say... I found only speculations, so nothing concrete. One thing might be hardware acceleration for HTML5's video codec.
