AMD Fusion helps the Foxconn NT-A3500 deliver twice the performance over the NT-330i while using even less power
Milton Keynes, UK, 26th April, 2011: Foxconn, the world leading manufacturer of computer components and systems, today announced incredible performance results for the new NT-A3500 Barebone – with over twice the performance of the NT-330i it replaces, whilst using significantly less power.
Utilising the new AMD Fusion APU with built-in Radeon HD 6310 graphics, the NT-A3500 is capable of delivering DirectX ® 11 graphics and true 1080p HD playback with real-time image processing, all in the ultra-small form factor of the Foxconn NT-series chassis.
The NT-A3500 Barebone features the AMD E350 Dual Core 1.6GHz APU coupled with the AMD A45 chipset. The specification includes USB 3.0, Wireless-N and support for up to 4GB DDR3 memory.
Foxconn’s own like-for-like testing shows the NT-A3500 to be more than twice as fast as the NT-330i it is replacing whilst consuming almost 6 watts less power:
NT-330i NT-A3500 3DMark06 829 1760 Power consumption during 3DMark06 playback 29.6 Watts 23.9 Watts Power consumption during HD video playback using Power DVD 10 27.3 Watts 23.2 Watts
Stephen Ling, Managing Director for Foxconn, Western Europe, said, “Using the full capabilities of the AMD APU has allowed Foxconn to build a Nettop with twice the performance of its predecessor , reduce power consumption and keep it all within our extremely popular ultra-small form factor. The advances in technology are allowing people to benefit from using tiny computers in more and more applications.”
The NT-A3500 will be available in Europe from the middle of May, 2011.
