>tfw a 5W 28nm tablet Mullins APU has 60% the processing power of my 35W 32nm laptop Trinity APU.
Why aren't we seeing more A10 M-6700T laptops and tablets? They would clearly be cheaper to make than core-m based ones.
Probably because of all the arm tablet competition. Yeah 5 watts seems like its not alot but on a tablet it is. 5 watts is what a tablet should be using max including screen, wifi, processor, etc. That way a shitty 3000 mah battery will last at least 3 hours (3,000 mah/1000 mah).
Still a pretty cool apu, im impressed tbh. Probably going to be great for cheap ultraportables.
This and the fact that arm cpus have made it really hard for x86 cpus to compete in the tablet world. Unless you made a tablet with a 10 volt battery then there is no way you will be able to run a 5 watt processor on it. I'm not too sure how battery tech works but running more than 1 amp on a 5 volt battery would make it hot as fuck so a 10 volt battery would have to be used. And even then a 10 volt 3,000 mah battery would only provide a mere 3 hours of intensive use.
I don't think 10 volt tablet batteries exist. I always see 3.7 volts specified on them. That means you can only safely output 3.7 watts total of energy at 1 amp. OP's processor would make a tablet asplode from drawing 2 amps (~7 watts) of energy while under heavy load.
Can't you just put two 3.7 volt batteries together then? That would allow the tablet to draw 7.4 watts at 1 amp safely. The APU I posted actually has a max tdp of 4.5 watts, that would leave 3 watts for the screen, wifi, and whatnot. It's not like the cpu would draw 4.5 watts all the time.
Remember how the shills were hyping that shit up like the second ejaculation of christ? Same thing with bulldozer and the fury.
Zen will be a piece of turd.
Also intel already has x86 cores in phones that competes with arm in ipc and powwr consumption.
Really? Well then maybe bulldozer were scraps AMD was finishing on and amd hired jim to help develop bobcat. What I can be sure of is AMD is lucky jim came to help. The kaveri desktop chips were alright, especially the 860K. That chips runs like a beast if you can OC it.
Those atom chips are huge pieces of shit though. Yeah they only use 1-2 watts of energy but they can only score like 100 passmark points. Pretty pathetic tbh. I wish phone batteries could pump out more than 3.7 watts of energy. I wouldn't mind a shitty battery life if I could run windows 7 on my phone.
I'm confused, I thought phone/tablet batteries could pump out more than 1 amp of current. Like can't a 3.7 volt 3,000 mah battery give you 3 amps of current for an hour? That should give you like 12 watts of power, more than enough to run OPs mullins processor + screen,wifi for at least an hour.

They were so shitty microsoft and sony decided to put them into their consoles :')
