  • AMD's focus with its Z-60 APU is to deliver products that can handle both content consumption and creation. 

    The Z-60's dual-core 1GHz CPU and Radeon HD 6250 GPU offer enough power for tablets to take on this dual personalities in both consumer and enterprise Windows 8 powered hardware.

  • The Z-60 combines a dual-core 1GHz CPU, 80 core GPU, and 1MB of L2 cache in a package that only consumes 4.5W. This figure might be higher than the 1.7W that Intel claims for its new "Clover Trail" silicon, but it is much better than previous-generation AMD APUs.

    The Z-60 also features support for USB 3.0 and 1080p HD screen resolution.
