AMD 6th Generation Carrizo APU Unveiled: Taking On Intel At 15 Watts
Introducing AMD’s 6th Gen APU: Carizzo
Carrizo takes the fight to AMD’s primary competitor in the lucrative premium notebook space, targeting a 15 Watt TDP (Thermal Design Power) envelope that sits square in the middle of Intel’s ultrabook product stack. Think Core i5-5200U and up in Broadwell flavor (4200U in Haswell silicon) and that’s the sweet spot of Carrizo. For AMD’s purposes, of course, that’s where the lion’s share of the volume is in notebooks as well.
