AMD AMD Refreshes 'Bobcat' based APU's with C-60, E-300 and E-450

The single and dual core line ups get a bump with faster x86 cores and Turbo CORE technology, in the same TDP as the previous models.

Today, AMD updated its award-winning C- and E-Series Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) for ultrathin and value notebooks, netbooks, all-in-ones and desktop PCs with top of the line features. The updated APUs deliver;
  • Enhanced HD graphics capabilities;
  • Performance boosts with enhanced memory;
  • DisplayPort ++ for connecting to any HDMI or DisplayPort-enabled monitor or TV;
  • 2 hours of resting battery life on a single charge for the mobile platform – a nearly four hour increase over previous platforms.

Notebooks, netbooks, small form factor and all-in-one desktops based on these new APUs are available from leading manufacturers starting today.
"Today’s PC users want stunning HD graphics and accelerated performance with all-day battery life and that’s what AMD Fusion APUs deliver," said Chris Cloran, vice president and general manager, Client Division, AMD. "With these new APUs, we’re bringing premium features to entry-level products that let users get a richer computing experience."
AMD has shipped more than 12 million APUs, and sold more than five million of the popular C- and E-Series APUs in Q2 2011 alone. The updated AMD C- and E-Series APUs meet the needs of consumers who want fast and Brilliant HD streaming video, sharp photos, life-like gaming through powerful DirectX®11-capable discrete-level graphics and a parallel processing engine, as well as all-day battery life.

Additionally, the updated E-Series APUs feature:
  • DDR3 1333 support for enhanced memory bandwidth and faster performance and video playback.
  • HDMI 1.4a connections allow for viewing 3D pictures and home video on 3D-enabled TVs and displays.

For mobile users, the new AMD Fusion C-Series and E-Series APUs deliver even longer battery life than before — with up to 10.5 hours of resting battery life on the E-Series and 12 hours on the C-Series — enabling users to work or play longer without searching for an outlet.

Products from leading PC manufacturers based on these new APUs are available starting today and can be identified by the VISION Technology from AMD or HD Internet stickers.


More details on the processors will be available on AMD.com's product pages, with specifications on core CPU clocks and turbo modes, as well GPU specifications. The increased display flexibility (DisplayPort ++) should make the lowest APU's more attractive for tablets, ultra portables and small form factor computers, while the increased memory speed support should help with bandwidth limited compute tasks on both the CPU and GPU cores. TDP's stay the same.
