The AMD A6 4400m is a dual core CPU that is based on the latest Trinity “Piledriver” architecture. The 4400m comes integrated with AMD Radeon HD 7520G GPU. While the company claims that it is a dual core, we beg to disagree since it has only one module with 1 floating point and 2 integer cores. It runs at 2.7GHz and auto overclocks to 3.2GHz when its turbo core is activated.
Here are its benchmark results (Lenovo N586 notebook):
1) PCMark vantage – 4427
2) Cinebench R10: Rendering Single CPUs 64Bit – 2990
3) 3DMark Vantage: P CPU no PhysX 1280×1024 – 3304
4) Passmark – 2575
TDP of this AMD A6 APU (accelerated processing unit) is 35 watts, which makes it usable only in big, mainstream notebooks. Ultrabooks require processors with under 20 watt TDP and so, this does not qualify.
