Vendors introduce AMD E-450 notebooks

Written by


Brazos gets a makeover
Several vendors are already refreshing their Brazos notebook lineups with new E-450 APUs and a couple of them should be available in European shops by next week.

The E-450 is a revision of AMD’s first ever Fusion APU, the E-350. In terms of clock speed, it is just marginally faster, clocked at 1.66GHz vs. 1.6GHz for the E-350. However, it sports a reworked GPU with Turbo overclocking. The HD 6310 on the E-350 runs at 500MHz, but the E-450 features HD 6320 graphics, clocked up to 600MHz thanks to Turbo. The rest of the spec remains largely unchanged.

So far MSI, Tosh, Acer, HP and Asus have announced more than a dozen notebook SKUs based on the E-450. The good news is that the refreshed models are not pricier than their E—350 predecessors, meaning that we could see some nice discounts on E-350 based notebooks. Basically consumers will get a bit more performance at the same price point and they can tell their buddies their low end notebook features Turbo.

Prices for E-450 rigs range from €299 for 12-inch models from Asus and MSI to €499 for a feature packed 17-inch Toshiba Satellite. All things considered, pretty cheap, Brazos continues to deliver superior value for money and performance compared to Atom processors.
