5. Power measurements carried out by AMD Performance Labs measuring total system and individual component power while web browsing and viewing a local video playback viewed at 1080P and screen brightness of 100 nits. Total system power was 5.1W for video playback 4.2W for web browsing. The Intel system measured a total system power consumption of 7.3W for video playback and 6.1W for web browsing. Battery life calculations for both platforms were derived using a 33Whr battery pack with 96 percent utilization and showed AMD battery life of 6.2 hours for video playback and 7.6 hours for web browsing. The Intel system calculated battery life of at 4.3 hours of video playback and 5.3 hours of web browsing. The systems tested are the AMD "Larne" reference system with a configuration including the A6-1450 1.0GHz APU with Radeon HD 8250 series graphics, 4GB DDR3-1066 system memory and Microsoft Windows 8, and the Acer Iconia W700-6607 with an Intel Core i3-3217U 1.8GHz, Intel integrated graphics, 4GB DDR3 system memory and Microsoft Windows 8. AMD tests were performed on optimized AMD reference systems; PC manufacturers may vary their configuration yielding different results. TEM-24
6. Test conducted in AMD Performance Labs using FutureMark 3DMark for Windows 8 Ice Storm Test as a metric for GPU performance. The AMD A4-1200 APU-based system scored 11,920 while the Intel Atom Z2760 based system scored 2431. The platforms tested were the "Larne" reference platform with an AMD A4-1200 Dual Core 1.0GHz APU, AMD Radeon HD 8180 series graphics, 2GB DDR3-1066 system memory and Microsoft Windows 8, versus an Acer ICONIA W510-1666 with an Intel Atom Z2760 1.5GHz CPU, Intel integrated graphics, 2GB DDR3-1066 system memory and Microsoft Windows 8.

7. AMD Start Now technology is a BIOS optimized solution designed to deliver better system responsiveness by minimizing the time to wake up the system from sleep mode, boot the system to desktop and connect to a wireless local area network. Actual times will vary based on operating system, APU, driver, disk drive and memory speed. AMD Start Now technology is available with select AMD APUs when running Windows 7 or Windows 8. Check with your component or system manufacturer or retailer for specific model capabilities.
