AMD’s upcoming Godavari APU lineup has been leaked by the guys over at VR-Zone ahead of its summer launch. These new APUs will be part of the Kaveri-refresh platform, which is aimed to refresh current Kaveri APUs with the new 8000 series branding. AMD is planning 12 new APUs that utilize the x86 Steamroller core and GCN graphics architecture.
AMD’s CEO Lisa Su revealed that AMD’s upcoming Carrizo APU will deliver the largest ever generational leap on performance per watt for mainstream APUs ever! In addition, she also confirmed that Carrizo will be launched in the second half of the year.
Intel has constantly been pushing new CPU architecture year after year, but what about AMD? According to a recent interview with Bloomberg, AMD will not be releasing a new micro-architecture until 2016, with all CPU or APU products being released between now and then based on the current architecture.
AMD today introduced the new AMD A10-7800 Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) to the component channel. This 4th generation A-Series APU with 12 Compute Cores (4CPU + 8 GPU) unlocks the APU potential with Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) features, and boasts powerful AMD Radeon R7 Series graphics for outstanding performance across applications.
AMD has recently posted a “Core is Back” teaser video over at their Facebook page, which hints to the fact that they may have a CPU announcement coming very soon. The teaser and video come directly from AMD’s official Facebook and YouTube pages so we are very interested to see what all this is about.
AMD has just launched its latest FM2+ socket based processor based on the 28 mm Kaveri architecture, the A10-7800 Accelerated Processing Unit (APU). This APU makes use of four Steamroller cores and has a rated TDP of 65W.
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.
