The new E2-1800 and E1-1200


After showing up at AMD's website earlier this week, AMD has now officialy announced its newest E-Series APUs, the E2-1800 and E1-1200. Better known as the Brazos 2.0 platform, the new APUs are still based on two Bobcat cores but feature improved AMD Radeon HD 7000 series graphics with DirectX 11 and DirectCompute support and up to 80 stream processors.

According to AMD, the new Brazos 2.0 APUs have improved mobility with up to 36 percent longer battery life compared to competition, enhanced video experience thanks to AMD Steady Video technology, superior online experience with AMD Quick Stream technology, 10x faster data transfer speeds thanks to to two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports, increased CPU and GPU performance due to higher frequency, and ability to project to external 3D displays.

AMD takes a lot of pride in compute capabilities of its Radeon HD graphics and due to collaboration with Microsoft promises improved overall experience in upcoming Windows 8 OS, an accelerated performance in all major web browsers as well as HTML5 and Metro user interface improvements.

Spec wise, the E2-1800 feature two Bobcat CPU cores clocked at 1.7GHz, 1MB of L2 cache, Radeon HD 7340 GPU part with 80 stream processors with GPU clock set at 523MHz and 680MHz Turbo. It supports DDR3-1333(DDR3L-1333/DDR3U-1066) memory and has a 18W TDP. Although it has a different model name, the E1-1200 is still a dual core part with a slightly lower 1.4GHz CPU clock, has the same 1MB of L2 cache, same memory support, features the Radeon HD 7310 GPU part with 80 stream processors clocked at 500MHz. As you could have noticed, the E1-1200 lacks Turbo on the GPU part but has the same 18W TDP.

AMD expect all global OEMs like Acer, Asus, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, Sony and Toshiba to start rolling out their AMD E-Series Brazos 2.0 systems soon.
