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.
It looks like custom-designed Radeon R9 290 and R9 290X cards could launch very close to Christmas or miss it all together and be released in 2014. Custom designed R9 290 series cards are highly anticipated because as we all know the reference-design cooling solution on these cards is not all that powerful and extremely noisy.
Some details regarding the two Kaveri A-Series SKUs, the A10-7850K and the A10-7700K, have been revealed. We are assuming that the AMD A10-7850K is going to be the flagship Kaveri APU of AMD for the year 2014, thus replacing the Richland A10-6800K APU.
AMD’s newest Radeon R9 290 graphic card seems to be doing pretty fine for its start with the higher affordability and higher gaming performance. And with the aid of a simple BIOS flash, the card can also be unlocked into the Radeon R9 290X which is the much faster version. Most of the cards don’t come with the option which allows them to be unlocked however those that do seem to be going away at a fast pace.
It was revealed at the introductory announcement that the APU was featuring the four Steamroller B cores and GCN based graphics. This was about two weeks ago and by now we have been able to get our hands on some more details regarding how the new platform will work and what are the features which surely everyone by now wants to know.
The R9 290X x2 is very soon going to reveal itself as we have it from some reliable sources. This Dual Hawaii-XT GPU is another roll out from AMD and has been codenamed as ‘Vesuvius’ which comes as no surprise by now because we are all used to the AMD’s naming strategy.
The APU by AMD, named as Bonaire and Pitcairn GPUs and Jaguar Cores, has been successfully delivered to both the Xbox One and PS4. Reports have shown that the PS4 has been equipped with 1152 SPs and 8 Jaguar Cores but some leaked information confirms that there are 128 SPs left which are still unaccounted for.
Looks like AMD has got it big and it’s really catching up with all the newest versions of graphic cards and the amazing releases. It is rolling out one more into the market namely the FirePro S10000 12 GB Edition graphics card which has exclusively been designed for supporting the HPC workloads for single precision as double precision performance.
