If you look at the image above, AMD sees an opportunity on a changing landscape where performance laptops are not everything, but mobility, integrated hardware and high efficiency play as much of a factor. The A4 SoC is feature rich and quite competent for productive multi-tasking and that may just be the right answer for new affordable ultraportables.

Short Review: The AMD A4-5000 APU "Kabini" Small differences, big effect: The A4-5000 APU's higher clock frequencies (CPU, GPU and memory) compared to the A6-1450 really pay off, especially when the unit is running games; at least the increase in speed m...

AMD has achieved two things with Kabini. One, the company has delivered a substantial across-the-board performance increase over Brazos, its previous low-power mobile platform, without increasing the power envelope. In fact, Kabini is more...

Battery and Power ConsumptionMaybe more important than just performance is the need for power efficiency with the Kabini platform. To test that I ran our in-house battery test that does web browsing over WiFi and logs time stamps along the way. Here ...

In terms of the normal Windows experience, Kabini doesn't make too many waves. Yes, it's faster than any current Atom or Brazos laptop, and Windows runs reasonably well all things considered, but there are still applications where Kabini falls short....

AMD's new A4-5000 is an intriguingly little chip in its own right. But the knowledge that it shares much of its architecture with the Microsoft Xbox One and Sony Playstation 4 really ramps up the intrigue. So what have we learned? We liked 2D HD video...

Obviously if you were expecting something powerful from Kabini you would be sorely disappointed by this point and dare we say it a little delusional. The A4-5000 certainly isn’t designed to compete with products such as the recently reviewed Gigabyte...

De petites différences, impact énorme: Le A4-5000 APU avec ses fréquence plus élevées (CPU, GPU et mémoire) comparé au A6-1450 est vraiment une autre puce, surtout dans les jeux; ce qui fait que de nombreux titres des dernières années deviennent...

Tidigt 2011 sjösatte AMD processorn Zacate och plattformen Brazos. Det här var företagets första krets enligt konceptet "Fusion", med processorkärnor och grafik på samma krets. Den nya plattformen blev snabbt en kioskvältare och med över 50 miljoner...

Après le lancement de ses premiers SoC Jaguar destinés au marché embarqué, AMD lance aujourd'hui officiellement les premières déclinaisons qui seront disponibles pour le grand public. Il s'agit des processeurs Kabini et Temash, des processeurs basse...

Dat AMD in zwaar weer verkeert is inmiddels zo'n cliché dat we ervan uitgaan dat het geen nadere toelichting behoeft. Veel interessanter is het om te zien hoe het noodlijdende concern probeert weer vaste grond onder de voeten te krijgen. Dat doet het...

Kurztest: AMD A4-5000 APU "Kabini" Kleine Unterschiede, große Wirkung: Die im Vergleich mit dem A6-1450 etwas höheren Taktraten von CPU, Grafikeinheit und Speicher zahlen sich insbesondere in Spielen deutlich aus. Zumindest einige weniger aufwändige...
