AMD’s Budget APUs the E-Series and the C-Series have gotten upgrades.
According to Anandtech, the new E450 will replace the E350 as the top end of the E-series. The E450 will sport a minor speed bump on the CPU side from 1.6GHz to 1.65GHz while the Radeon HD 6320 GPU gets a higher speed boost from 492MHz to 508MHz. Aside from the speed bump, AMD has also added Turbo Core but only for the GPU wherein if the TDP allows it, will boost the GPU speed up to 600MHz. This allows for up to 22% faster GPU performance than the E350. The E450 also supports the faster DDR-3 1333 from the previous 1066 of the other APUs.
Another upgrade to the E-Series is the E300 which replaces the E-240. The E300 will double the CPU core count from the E240 the older APU is only single core. However, speeds have been reduced from 1.5GHz to 1.3GHz and 500MHz to 488MHz for the CPU and GPU respectively.
The last update is on the C-Series which only refreshes the the C50 APU. The new C60 will retain the 1GHz clock speed of the C50 but adds Turbo Core that supports higher speeds for both the CPU and GPU parts of the C60. With Turbo Core, the CPU part can go as high as 1.33GHz while the GPU can go as high as 400MHz from its stock speed of 276MHz.
All refreshed APUs now support multimode DisplayPort (DP++) which means you can carry both HDMI and DVI signals through the DP connector that will support either out connection dongles.
The new APUs are now available to OEMs while there are no announcements from OEMs using them.
