Even though AMD isn't expected to officially launch the E-300 and E-450 accelerated processing units until September of 2011, the chips have already started to make their appearance in various notebooks, and one such device is the Acer-built Aspire 7250.
We talked about AMD's E-450 APU before in a series of other articles detailing notebooks that will be powered by this processor, but the E-300 is a somewhat more mysterious appearance.
The chip itself isn't all that different from the rest of AMD's E-series accelerated processing units and was designed to come as a bridge between the single core E-240 and the dual-core E-350, both launched in January of this year.
As a result, the APU includes dual processing cores based on the Bobcat architecture clocked at 1.3GHz (300MHz lower than the A-350) which are paired together with a Radeon HD 6310 integrated GPU running at 488MHz (492MHz in the E-350), all fitted inside a 18W TDP.
Customers who want to go for the Aspire 7250 will have the option of choosing between this APU and the E-350 or E-450.
No matter the processor chosen, the notebook can however be configured with up to 8GB of DDR3 system memory as well as with various hard drive options ranging in capacity from 320GB to 750GB.
A DVD burner also comes as a standard feature, while the rest of the specifications list includes a 2-in-1 card reader, a 0.3MP webcam, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and fast Ethernet connectivity, HDCP and VGA video outputs as well as a multi-gesture touchpad.
The CineCrystal screen used in the Acer Aspire 7250 measures 17.3-inch in diagonal, has a 1600x900 pixel resolution and delivers 220-nits of brightness, while the included 6-cell battery pack provides up to 4 hours of use.
No information regarding pricing or availability of the AMD E-450 and E-300 powered Aspire 7250 notebooks has been disclosed.
