The AMD Temash A6-1450 SOC features a Quad core design ramping up the clock speed to 1 GHz in stock and 1.4 GHz in Turbo mode. Based on the latest 28nm Jaguar core architecture, the chip features improved performance per watt compared to the Bobcat based Brazos 2.0 processors. The chip comes with 2 MB of L2 cache and has a 4-6 Watt TDP which is pretty impressive for the new architecture by AMD. In addition to the CPU, the graphics part is based on the latest HD 8280 iGPU that is clocked at 300 (idle) and 500 MHz (load) clock frequencies. The graphics make use of AMD's NUMA (Non-Uniform memory access) architecture and the notebook is equipped with a 2 GB DDR3 memory.
