The AMD FX-9800P is a 7th generation (Bristol Ridge) quad core Accelerated Processing Unit for notebooks. This accelerated processor (APU) has a base clock speed of 2.7 GHz but with Boost speed of 3.6 GHz. Bristol Ridge is the successor of the Carrizo architecture and the design is practically identical. The FX9800P is slightly fast than the old 15-Watt top model FX-8800P and can compete with Intel Core i3-6100U from Skylake architecture with TDP of 15 Watts) because of higher clocks.
The AMD FX-9800P SoC (System on a Chip) is manufactured using 28 nm technology and includes a Radeon R7 (Carrizo) GPU, a memory controller that supports DDR4-RAM, and chipset with all I/O ports.
The integrated GPU in this SOC is 5 GPU which has 512 active shader units (8 compute cores) clocked at up to 758 MHz and capable of rendering high definition movies and playing low resolution games with ease.
The TDP – Thermal Design Power of this SOC is about 15 watts. It supports 64 bit technology and hardware virtualizations like AMD-V. This SOC was announced last June 1, 2016.
