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.
