Now the company is adding a new processor to the lineup. The AMD Elite Quad-Core A4-1350 is aimed at tablets, touchscreen notebooks, and hybrid devices. It’s expected to start shipping in October.
The 1 GHz quad-core processor features AMD Radeon HD 8210 graphics clocked at 300 MHz, and support for DirectX 11.1.
While the chip has a TDP of 8 watts, AMD is taking a page out of Intel’s book and announcing that the processor uses 3W or less “for many common use cases,” such as playing 1080p video, streaming YouTube videos, or surfing the web.
Paired with a decent battery and a tablet or notebook with a 13 inch or smaller screen, it should be possible to get reasonably long battery life from a machine with this type of processor.
AMD already offers an A4-1250 dual-core processor with a TDP of 8W. It’s interesting to see that the company’s quad-core variant isn’t expected to use any more power.
