Brothers in Gaming and Tech
With the drive in the CPU industry to provide high performance, low power components, AMD’s design revolves around its Jaguar based architecture and range of Temash and Kabini APUs. Temash is typically for the tablet market, with one of the processors in the family, the A4-1200, offering a dual core 1.0 GHz implementation with 128 stream processors at 225 MHz (aka HD 8180). But it is this APU that ASUS are opting to place in a new laptop – the Vivo Book X102BA.
Information from Sweclockers tells us that the base model of the X102BA, along with the 4W Temash processor, will come with a 10.1 inch touch screen panel (TN), a 320GB mechanical hard drive, 2GB of DDR3L memory. The upgraded model will offer a 500GB/4GB storage and memory combo. The Vivobook will also come with 32GB of free storage in ASUS’ cloud service.
Connectivity comes via two USB 2.0, one USB 3.0, HDMI, VGA, an SD card reader, Ethernet and an audio jack. The WiFi implementation should be 802.11b/g/n, although there is no word if that is dual band or 2×2:2. Reports suggest a 22 WH or 33 WH depending on configuration, which is listed for five hours operating time.
