AMD’s upcoming low power APU “Kabini” lineup has been detailed in a leaked HP spec sheet. The series will launch with no less than five models and chips could be built in both the AM1 and BGA packages. The series will start with the dual core E1-2100 and E1-2150. These will feature clock speeds of 1.0 GHz and 1.05 GHz respectively, 1 MB of L2 cache and Radeon HD 8210 graphics. The CPUs are based on the “Jaguar” micro-architecture. The HD 8210 has 128 stream processors and is based on the Graphics CoreNext architecture.
We spotted at few of AMD socket FS1b motherboards at CES 2014. These motherboards are meant to support AMD’s “Kabini” APUs which have the chipset integrated into the SoC. So these motherboard have CPU sockets, memory slots, PCI-Express, display, SATA, power, and other legacy I/O interfaces. AMD has decided to rebrand this socket as AM1.
AMD officially released their first round of Kaveri APUs on January 5th and they shipped on the 14th. Three APUs made up AMD’s first round and they included the A10-7850K, A10-7700K and A8-7600. It has been reported that the second wave of AMD Kaveri APUs will debut in the second quarter of 2014.
Baidu Chinese forums have given some pretty interesting performance leaks on the APU where apparently one of the users managed to get hands on the final retail sample of chip which was compared against the A10-6800K and the result was some pretty interesting numbers.
AMD’s net gen Opteron chips will include the Toronto APU, Toronto CPU and Cambridge CPU and AMD has already presented a road map for these. The surprising part is that this road map also includes some details about the AMD’s Carrizo APU which is going to be launched in the year 2015.
There were a couple of pictures posted on the Facebook page of Biostar and they showcased the new A10-7850k APU which was running on their Hi-Fi A88W 3D board under LN2 cooling. The A10-7850k is seen running at 4.2 GHz in a few cases but the actual clock speed rates still have not been confirmed which were designed for the LN2 session.
So it has finally been confirmed that the flagship A10 Kaveri APU from AMD is going to come all bundled up with the Battlefield 4. This piece of information has been revealed through a Swedish source and it is quite surprising as well as happy news because AMD APU’s are usually known for being priced very reasonably and now it comes with a little surprise.
Good news for those who are planning to get their hands on the Kaveri APUs; the A10-7850K and A10-7700K which are coming soon. ShopBLT has revealed a few details about the pricing of these for the pre orders along with some other enlightening details.
