AMD's Brazos E-450 detailed

The E-350 successor
We managed to more juicy details regarding AMD's upcoming update of the Brazos platform, the E-450 APU. There were some details regarding the E-450 during Computex in June, but we can now confirm that it features an updated HD 6320 graphics part, a bit higher CPU clock and support for higher clocked memory.

As noted earlier, the E-450 features HD 6320 graphics part that has the same 80 stream processors, just like the HD 6310 on the E-350. The E-450 comes with AMD's Turbo Core but with a slight twist as this time around it actually works on the GPU raising the clock from default 508MHz to 600MHz.

The CPU is pretty much the same as on the E-350 so you are looking at two Bobcat cores that are now clocked at 1.65GHz. It still has 1MB of L2 cache and a same 18W TDP. Another novelty is the support for 1333MHz DDR3 memory that should increase the IGP performance, at least in theory.

The E-450 is still based on FT1 package but unfortunately the release date is still unknown as AMD keeps it under tight wraps.

I'd heard the CPU might also do Turbo... oh well. At least the 6320 does. Still, for a higher designation I'd expect higher stock clocks than the 6310 too, not just adding Turbo (call me old-fashioned).

Some E-350 mobos already support DDR3-1333...

I'd have called this the E-365 or something; adding 100 to the designation seems a bit much. Still, glad they are making the chip do more within the same TDP! Excited to see how it does with the GPU Turbo.

Decent evolutionary move. I think I will wait for the rumoured 28nM shrink before deciding whether to replace my E350 board though.

Very disappointing update considering iLano has been released and its lower end model will compete with Brazos in some fashion.

I would have expected 120 or 160 GPU cores upgrade and more innovative Turbo mode like 2.6Ghz on single-core to get overall performance way higher than ION2/Atom525 solutions. Price wise would still in the range of A6 iLano boards, unless AMD would reduce Brazos prices even more to completely eliminate ATOM boards.

a 2.6GHz chip in a netbook? i think you are very confused.

What with this news ist really 'new'?? o_O

Xbitlabs had all the sepcs of the E-300 and E-450 leaked already before Computex 11 in March:

He just thinks he's the $hit.

Funny thing is, I don't read that site. I don't expect any tech news blog to be the source of every single post they make.

It would be nice though if fudzilla had someone competent enough in the english language to review what they write before hitting that submit button.
