AMD Shows Off Beema & Mullins But Its Linux Fate Is Unclear
AMD has now revealed their newest APUs, codenamed "Beema" and "Mullins" while their Linux fate remains unclear.
The AMD "Beema" APUs are targeted for mobile products like notebook PCs while AMD Mullin APUs are low-power processors for ultra low-powered devices. The low-end Mullin APUs sport Radeon R2/R3 Graphics.
The AMD Mullins APUs include the A10 Micro-6700T, A4 Micro-6400T, and E1 Micro-6200Tl. The Beema APUs include the E2-6010, E2-6110, A4-6210, and A6-6310. The Mullins models top out at 4.5 Watts while the Beema APUs top out at 15 Watts.
It's unfortunate we have not yet been able to benchmark any of the new AMD Beema/Mullins hardware, especially considering our extensive coverage of the AMD AM1 Platform, but hopefully we will be able to get some new APU samples in the days ahead... Until then, we have no idea how these new AMD APUs will work for low-power environments outside of Android.
More details on the new AMD APUs can be found via the AMD.com press release. We hope AMD will soon provide Phoronix with some new hardware to see how these next-generation APUs perform under modern Linux distributions.
