AMD A4-3305M Accelerated Processing Unit

The AMD A4-3305M is an accelerated dual core processor for notebook PCs. This AMD A4-3305M dual core APU has a 1.9 GHz base clock speed and is capable of overclocking automatically up to 2.5 GHz because of Turbo Core technology. Turbo Core will be activated if the thermal, core and electrical aspects of the system are met.

This AMD A4-3305M has an integrated graphics controller called Radeon HD 6480G that supports DirectX 11 with a maximum of 400 cores. The integrated GPU Radeon HD 6480G provides only 160 cores clocked at 593MHz. This is it’s distinction to the A4-3300M APU that features a regular HD 6480G with 240 shaders at 444MHz. Both GPUs feature no dedicated memory and are not capable of using the integrated cache in the processor.

Further to that, the AMD A4-3305M also offers an integrated UVD3 video processor that will fully decode commonly used High definition videos such as H.264, VC-1, MPEG4. Additionally, the AMD A4-3305M APU also offers integrated dual-channel memory controller with support for DDR3(L)-1333 memory and a PCIe 2.0 controller. This APU has a thermal design power of 35 watts which makes it suitable for 14 to 15 inch notebooks. It has a Level 1 Cache of 256 KB and Level 2 Cache of 1024 KB.
