Advanced Micro Devices has announced a new accelerated processing units for business tablets, hybrid devices and low-power/low-cost notebooks that has power consumption between 3W and 8W. The new A4-1350 chip is a more affordable version of existing A6-1450 solution that broadens the lineup of APUs based on Jaguar micro-architecture.

AMD A4-1350 accelerated processing unit features four Jaguar” x86 central processing unit (CPU) cores with 1GHz clock-rate, AMD Radeon HD 8210 graphics engine with 128 stream processors (GCN architecture) with 300MHz frequency, 2MB L2 cache as well as single-channel DDR3 memory controller. The AMD Elite quad-core A4-1350 accelerated processor is the second quad-core accelerated processing unit (APU) with an estimated average power at or below 3W for many common use cases as well as 8W thermal design power. The new chip is a lower-cost version of already announced quad-core A6-1450 APU that features dynamic frequency boost capabilities.

“Following the tremendous reception from customers to the launch of our 2013 Elite Mobility APUs, we are excited to strengthen our portfolio with the addition of the A4-1350. With quad-core performance, AMD Radeon™ HD graphics and long battery life, the A4-1350 is an ideal solution for new form factors like hybrid and convertible PCs,” said Bernd Lienhard, corporate vice president of AMD client business unit.

Although AMD Elite A4 and A6 accelerated processing units with 3W – 8W power consumption can power various hybrid PC designs, at present they are only found inside various low-power/low-cost notebooks, including the HP Pavilion TouchSmart and the Acer Aspire V5.

The AMD A4-1350 APU is expected to begin shipping to customers in October 2013 for use in small-screen touch notebooks, tablets, and hybrids with up to 13” displays.

I don't know of any Jaguar powered tablets. Main reason? Microsoft big time fail = no market for Windows 8 tablets. AMD should start diversifying its customer base to include Linux based tablets instead of continuing to pay MS industrial diplomatic courtesy.

Yeah, but Bay Trail is just as powerful as AMD's Temash in x86 CPU power while being 2 to 3 times slower in graphics.

Therefore AMD has a clear winner here, but Intel's market influence has spoken and here we are with NO Temash tablets or hybrids.

Graphics on AMD may be powerful but keep in mind that GPGPU performance between Intel and AMD are neck to neck. AMD GPU has more potential in GPGPU but AMD choose to limit it to not hurt the sales Firepro-M.

With video accelerated by GPGPU, graphics edge on AMD is not as significant as others think.
