AMD amplia la famiglia di APU a basso consumo - destinate ai notebook di piccole dimensioni, ai tablet e ai PC ibridi - presentando il modello denominato A4-1350. Si tratta della variante di Temash quad-core (CPU Jaguar x86 + iGPU GCN) priva della tecnologia Turbo Core.

L'APU A4-1350 offre le stesse caratteristiche del modello di punta A6-1450 (4C Jaguar x86 con base clock di 1GHZ, 2MB di L2, 128 SPs con base clock di 300MHz e supporto a memore DDR3-1066), ad eccezione del sistema DVFS che risulta disabilitato in UP sia sulla CPU che sull'iGPU. La rinuncia all'overclock dinamico consente alla casa di Sunnyvale di far scendere il consumo medio sotto i 3 watt per la maggior parte degli scenari di utilizzo e di fissare il TDP massimo a 8W.

La disponibilità della nuova APU ai produttori OEM è prevista per il mese di ottobre 2013.
