[anandtech] The AMD Kabini Review: A4-5000 APU Tested

post #1 of 21

Anand is covering AMD’s latest Kabini/Temash architecture in a separate article, but here we get to tackle the more practical question: how does Kabini perform compared to existing hardware? Armed (sorry, bad pun) with a prototype laptop sporting AMD’s latest APU, we put it through an extensive suite of benchmarks and see what’s changed since Brazos, how Kabini stacks up against Intel’s current ULV offerings, and where it falls relative to ARM offerings and Clover Trail. But first, let’s talk about what’s launching today.

Clovertrail+ is blown out of the water... thumb.gif

A 15W TDP chip blows a 2-4W TDP chip out of the water? Why am I not surprised.

For these chips to be competitive with Haswell, they have to be put in something like $199 cheapo laptops or else they can't compete. You can already find Core i3 laptops for $329.

Wait a minute...

You can find a cheap laptop with an i3 for that kind of money, except you don't look at build quality like screen, plastics, dvd, HDD and other things.

BTW TDP does not equal power consumption, i3 consumes more watts...

@pisstaker

Ok, lets compare it to Celeron and Pentium, it beats it and its comparable to an i3.

Kabini is looking good. lets see what Temash brings to the table.

I second that, Intel is no competition in this class, they should just stick to high end desktop CPU's since AMD is doing much better here.

For the $300-500 market, the screen, keyboard, and materials won't be any better for AMD's chipset either so its not really an advantage.

At such a low price point, you know what you're getting into so it's not a huge investment, thus not a huge loss either. AMD has none of the advantages at this point unless they can build tablets/laptops for $350 or less.

There are convertibles/sub-notebooks with Intel's Clovertrail+ Atoms for 450$ thus for the same price you can buy Acer Aspire V5-122p with A6-1450 even thought Acer put a weak battery that would fit a dual core Atom and not the quad core A6-1450... Those guys at Acer really know to screw up their products. thumb.gif
