  • HDMI 1.4a connections to enable 3D pictures and home video on 3Dcapable TVs and displays.
  • AMD VISION Engine Software to provide users with regular updates to help improve system performance and stability, and can add new software enhancements.

    With a suggested retail price of $95.00 (U.S), the AMD A6-3500 APU operates at 2.1GHz and 2.4GHz with Turbo Boost (CPU) and 444MHz (GPU) with 320 Radeon™ Cores, 3MB of L2 cache and a TDP of 65W. The AMD A6-3500 APU is designed for use with FM1 motherboards.
