There are only a handful of laptops and tablets on the market with AMD Mullins low-power processors, and most feature AMD’s E1 or A4 Micro series processors.
Now Taiwanese device maker BungBungame is showing off one of the first tablets with a more powerful AMD A10 Micro-6700T Mullins processor.
The BungBungame Photon2 is a Windows tablet with a 10.1 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel display, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. It’s designed to work with an optional Bluetooth keyboard cover and a digitizer pen for pressure-sensitive input (in addition to finger input). The tablet has a 30 Wh battery and it’s expected to sell for around $550.
What makes this tablet special is the AMD processor. It’s a 4.5 watt, quad-core processor with a top speed of 2.2 GHz and CPU performance that should be comparable with Intel’s Atom Bay Trail chips. But the AMD processor features Radeon R6 graphics which should offer much better graphics performance than a Bay Trail chip.
Other features of the Photon2 include a micro HDMI port, micro SDXC card slot, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and NFC. The tablet has front and rear cameras, and the system measures 10.4″ x 7.2″ x 0.4″ and weighs 1.3 pounds.
