AMD Reveals some Mullins and Beema Performance Figures

Posted on 07 January 2014, Last updated on 26 January 2020 by


In the AMD press conference at CES today we saw some performance figures for Mullins and Beema APUs that are due soon from AMD. Mullins targets fanless Baytrail-T products. Beema targets the Baytrail-M sector of entry-level desktops, 2-in-1s and larger ‘value’ tablets. No details were given about timescales but the performance figures look interesting.

In the graph above we’re seeing a ‘Mullins’ 4-core APU beating Baytrail-T at PCMark by 20%. More interesting is the 3DMark11 scores with 2.5X performance for Mullins and 3.5X performance for Beema over Baytrail-T and Baytrail-M respectively. Unfortunately the details on the parts used isn’t given but we’ll see if we can find the original slide set with the notes.

Mullins and Beema support InstantGo (Connected Standby), DockPort technology and will have an ARM-based security processor.

Also highlighted was the Discovery Project which is been used to create demonstrators and reference designs for OEMs.

    Six months to go before these are scheduled to be available in volume.

    Thanks JohnCz. Intel likely to be one step ahead on the CPU side of things again shortly after that but AMD have a great GPU advantage.
