One of the first portable computers sporting an AMD “Mullins” chip is now available. The HP Pavilion 10z is a small laptop with a touchscreen display and an AMD E1 Micro-6200T processor.
AMD’s Mullins chips are low-power, dual-core processors for low-cost tablets, notebooks, and 2-in-1 systems. These processors are basically the chip maker’s answer to Intel’s Atom product family, but AMD says you’ll get better graphics performance from its chips.
The AMD E1 Micro-6200T is a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor with 300 MHz AMD Radeon R2 graphics. The chip has a 3.95W TDP.
Unfortunately HP pairs the chip with a relatively small 24 Whr battery, so the company only promises up to 4 hours of battery life for the HP Pavilion 10z.
Other specs for the laptop include 2GB of RAM, a 500GB hard drive, 1 USB 3.0 port, 1 USB 2.0 port, HDMI and Ethernet, a headset jack, stereo speakers, and an SD card reader. The system has a 10.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display and the laptop measures 10.7″ x 7.6″ x 0.9″ and weighs about 2.5 pounds.
