AMD E2-3200 Makes Appearance in HP TouchSmart AIO System

Expected to arrive in the fourth quarter of this year, the entry-level AMD E2-3200 APUs based on the Llano architecture has made its appearance in the TouchSmart 320m series of all-in-one systems produced by HP.

AMD has designed the E2-3200 to be used in computing system that don't necessitate vast amounts of computing power and it includes two processing cores, with a clock speed of 2400MHz.

These are paired together with 1 MB of Level 2 cache and an integrated DDR3-1600 memory controller, while also packing an on-die graphics core which is dubbed the Radeon HD 6370D.

Since the E2-3200 is an entry-level APU, the Radeon graphics unit is limited at supporting 160 stream processors clocked at a rather low 443MHz operating frequency.

In the HP all-in-one, this APU can be paired together with as much as 8GB of DDR3 memory working at 1333MHz, a 2TB hard drive and a SuperMulti DVD burner or a Blu-ray combo drive.

In addition to the E2-3200, the HP TouchSmart 320m desktops can also be configured to feature the A6-3600 and A8-3800 accelerated processing units.

Both of these were announced by AMD quite a while back, but have been missing from the retail market as the Sunnyvale-based chip maker seems to have preferred to ship the APUs to OEMs.

Compared to the rest of the Llano chips released by AMD, the A6-3600 and A8-3800 are a bit special since both parts feature quad processing cores, Turbo Core support and have a TDP of just 65W. 

Outside of the TouchSmart 320m series, the two 65W chips are also offered by HP in the TouchSmart 520z series All-in-One PC, and HP Pavilion p7z and Gateway SX2370 desktop computers, according to the CPU-World website.
