AMD Fusion-based 1.9GHz A8-3530MX CPU detailed

AMD will soon release a quad-core Fusion-based chip for notebooks, the A8-3530MX, according to Turkish site Donanimhaber. The chip is housed on the so-called Sabine chip and is said to arrive in June. The fastest from the family will be the 1.9GHz A8-3530MX and will have 4MB of Level 2 cache.

It's due out in the second half of the year and is based on a 32 nanometer chip architecture. The chip will have the ability to work at 2.6GHz in TurboCore mode and has an integrated Radeon HD 6620G graphics core. This gets 400 shaders and supports DirectX 11 while working at 444MHz.

Support has been promised for dual-channel RAM up to 1,600MHz DDR3 standard memory, along with low-power DDR3L. The A-series graphics processors have a 128-bit memory bus and the A-series processors themselves have dual-GPU support, such as for an AMD Radeon HD 6600 external GPU. They are all compatible with the Blu-ray 3D standard.
