AMD has released a new series of processors also introduced new socket. The AM1-socket of the company is suitable for a range of Athlon and Sempron processors, which are based. On efficient, mobile APUs with Jaguar cores
The AM1 platform consists of a series of motherboards in the mATX and MITX-size with an AM1-socket. With its small size and low cost systems are to be used for budget computers that still have to upgrade by the user. The signs are not soldered processor, but the new AM1 socket, which Athlon or Sempron apu can be inserted.
The new Athlons and Semprons are made up of Jaguar cores, the same CPU cores used in AMD’s Kabini-SOCs. AMD will initially two quad-core Athlons of 2.05 GHz and 1.6 GHz and a dual-core and quad-core Sempron, 1.45 GHz and 1.3 GHz, respectively. The Athlons and Semprons not only Jaguar cores on board, but are also equipped with 128 Radeon cores based on the GCN architecture.
The processors are designed as SOCs: they not only have a memory controller on board, but also have a USB 2.0 and 3.0 controller, SATA controller, network I / O and display control built. The SOCs support DDR3 memory up to 1600MHz, gigabit ethernet, and control of displays with up to the associate professor resolution. There are also three PCI-Express lanes, in addition to two SATA ports, two ub 3.0 ports and eight USB 2.0 ports.
The SOC should be available starting at $ 39, while the motherboard would be. Costs about the same The price of the bare AM1 system would then have to continue. Among the hundred dollars or Euros
