The official debriefing has been given by AMD and it seems like we have a handful of details regarding the next generation Kaveri APU by AMD and this puts a lot on our plates. The upcoming A-Series Kaveri APUs by AMD are going to be branded as A10/A8/A6/A4-7000 series and these are now going to be ready to take place of the A10/A8/A6/A4-6000 series ‘Richland’ APUs.
An engineering sample of AMD’s upcoming Kaveri APU has been spotted as VR-Zone has obtained one. This is AMD’s first HSA supporting APU and is set to launch at CES on January 7th and will be released in the channel shortly after.
We have just received news that AMD will unveil, or at least tease its upcoming next-generation desktop APU, codenamed “Kaveri” on November 11. It will take place at AMD’s APU’13 event, which will go much like their GPU’14 event that took place in Hawaii back in September.
There have been conflicting reports about AMD’s upcoming Kaveri APU. Some people think it will release in February of 2014, while other say we will see it much sooner. Well a few different chinese sites have released performance results from near production samples which makes us think that we may see Kaveri before the end of the year.
A lot of anticipation had been lurking around and many speculations were being made since the announcement of AMD’s next-generation desktop APU which has been codenamed as “Kaveri”. Well, to light up the anticipation, there has been a little revelation and some piece of information has been given away through a leaked AMD slide. This one sheds some light on the important dates in the products launch cycle. We finally know now that the much awaited APU will officially be announced on the 5th of December.
For upcoming Kaveri APUs, the latest MSI A88X-G43 motherboard has been launched by the MSI team. Featuring all the military class IV components, the 6+2 Phase PWM also comes with OC Certified components to deliver the best in quality and performance. The FM2+ socket supports all Kaveri APUs and is fully usable with Richland/Trinity.
It looks like a 100W Kaveri APU (KV Spectre Desktop 100W 1305) was spotted on Sisoft Sandra’s benchmark along with some information regarding the GPU, memory and a few bandwidth tests. The model in question showed a total of 13 CUs, which amounts to 832 stream processors. That is just a CU less than the top HD 7700 series card, the HD 7790.
AMD has confirmed that their next-generation socket FM2+ APUs codenamed “Kaveri” will begin shipping in Q4 of this year and will be available “very early” in Q1 of 2014 in the retail (desktop) channel. Mobile variants of the chip will be available a little later in the same quarter.
A couple of hours ago one of the DigiTimes reported that Kaveri APUs from AMD might probably get postponed since their mass production hasn’t begun yet. Besides this there was some more information hidden in the news post which gives us the idea of the codenames for AMD’s 2015 series of APUs.
AMD announced the desktop version of its newest Richland A-series processors and unveiled it to the public for the very first time their upcoming Kaveri processor at the Computex Tradeshow earlier today. Currently the company is shipping its third generation APUs (Temash, Kabini and Richland). APU which is known as the future of computing combine x86 CPU with high performance is considered to be the key strategy of AMD.
