As is known, the name of Carrizo due to the disappointment of fans AMD. Initially, everyone was waiting for an update mobile series APU not only mobile, but also on the desktop, with rumors that AMD will release a six-core version of Carrizo, but in the end it turned out that the novelty will appear only in the mobile version. The network has photos of engineering samples of these chips.

As you can see, the chip is very compact, and outwardly looks more like a GPU than on a normal central – due to open the crystal and the protective frame around the perimeter of the package. Looks outside the box marked ZM18B8C1Y4382, AMD processors are usually most marked, beginning with the letter A (Athlon or APU), the second letter denotes the class (D – desktop, M – mobile), in this case it’s definitely about the mobile chip in a package such as BGA, that well confirms the second shot.

According to the rules of marking, we have a quad-core chip with a frequency of 1.8 GHz, which is in turbo mode may increase up to 3.4 GHz. Teplopaket is 15 or 35 watts, just can not say. Prototypes based notebooks APU Carrizo has been seen at CES 2015, information on performance trends are more or less known, and thus, we will soon see mass products with this processor. Unfortunately, the owners of desktop systems with socket FM2 + will have to settle for Bristol Ridge – slightly polished version of the Kaveri.
