Laptop with AMD Mullins seen in the wild

Written by Nick Farrell



New APU appears to be available

One of the first portable computers sporting an AMD “Mullins” chip has hit the shops.  The maker of expensive printer ink HP has released its HP Pavilion 10z is a small “laptop” with a touchscreen display and an AMD E1 Micro-6200T processor. We say laptop but it seems more like a netbook with a slightly better display to us. It’s available from HP for $250.

Mullins chips are low-power, dual-core processors for low-cost tablets, notebooks, and 2-in-1 systems and they fill a similar role to Intel’s Atom. AMD says you’ll get better graphics performance from Mullins. The AMD E1 Micro-6200T is a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor with 300 MHz AMD Radeon R2 graphics. The chip has a 3.95W TDP. What is particularly daft about this as a test of Mullins ability is that HP gave the 10z a small 24Whr battery which can only manage four hours of life.

It also has 2GB of RAM, a 500GB hard drive, one USB 3.0 port, one USB 2.0 port, HDMI and Ethernet, a headset jack, stereo speakers, and an SD card reader. The system has a 10.1-inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display. It measures 10.7? x 7.6? x 0.9? and weighs about 2.5 pounds. (For readers whose countries were not colonised by the British Empire, that's 27cm x 19.5cm x 23mm and 1.2kg. Ed)
