AMD E-Series E-350 APU

The AMD E-350 is another Fusion chip from Advance Micro Devices. The Fusion chip also called as APU or Accelerated Processing Unit is a chip wherein the CPU and GPU chips are combined together for efficient and better performance not only by the computing power but also the graphics power of the system aside from its low power consumptions. The AMD E-350 APU AMD E-350 is intended to compete with Intel's low-voltage mobile Pentium and Core 2 Duo processors such as the Pentium dual-core SU4100, Core 2 Duo SU7300 and Core 2 Duo SU9400, and to leave behind Intel integrated graphics.

The AMD E-350 APU has a clock speed of 1.6GHz with 512KB level2 cache on each core. This APU chip is integrated with Radeon HD 6310 graphics card with a clock speed of 492 MHz. The Radeon HD 6310 integrated graphics is said to be as good as or better than entry level dedicated graphics cards. With the Radeon HD 6310 you can play High Definition movies and play games with it at low resolution. This feature of the AMD APUs outperform netbook computers with Intel processors on it. The AMD E-350 APU is not only available in netbook computers but also in other laptops with larger display sizes.

Below is the illustration showing the PassMark Rating of AMD E-350 compared to other processor chips. The higher the PassMark Rating the better the performance.

Mobile processors PassMark Rating in Tabular form. Again the higher the rating the better the performance.
