If you go to the Bionic Research Database, you shall find an AMD Steamroller based APU. The chip listed is basically an engineering sample and we can say that it might be a part of AMD’s soon-to-come Kaveri or Berlin server APU line-up.
Last month AMD released their 100W and 65W Richland APU’s for the FM2 platform last month. They had great success as they improved on the areas where Trinity lacked enhancing clock speeds and HD Radeon performance. It looks like AMD is preparing new 45W Richland APUs which have been leaked in MSI’s CPU compatibility list.
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.
AMD might not be able to keep up the pace when it comes to Intel’s CPU power consumption. So it decided to change its pathway to Opteron X series featuring X2150 quad-core APU and X1150 quad core CPU. These devices have the potential to perform better when compared to Intel’s Atom offering. These are the most power proficient small core processors ever built. Especially the new X2150 and X1150 wipe the floor of defeating the top achieving Intel Atom processor on throughout remarkable performance with power efficiency with twice amount of cores and L2 cache, improved pipeline architecture and support for up to 32 GB of DRAM which is four times more than Intel Atom processor.
AMD’s new line of APU’s codenamed “Richland” are expected out in June, but as always there will be leaks. It looks like ZOL.com.cn has got their hands on one of these APU’s and put it to the test to reveal its performance numbers. The new APU in question is the A10-6800K.
Now with the announcement of Xbox One, AMD has confirmed through a Tweet that it is powered by a single-chip, semi-custom APU co-developed by AMD and Microsoft. This tweet reveals that Microsoft and AMD have worked closely for the APU powering Xbox One which features 8 cores, an embedded GPU and 8GB of RAM. It is rather strange that why Microsoft is so quite about the specs while Sony has openly announced the internals of their PS4.
That’s right we are giving away another AMD A8 3870K APU! This time we are doing it on our Facebook Page! The giveaway is very plain and simple. All you have to do is “Like” and “Share” our post. Then go ahead and fill out the entry form here. That is it! It really is that simple! The contest will fun for 1 week only and the winner will be selected the night of Wednesday October 23rd. This contest is only open to residents in the US and Canada. Good luck everyone!
If you weren’t so sure about upgrading that old computer sitting in the corner covered with cobwebs, you can stop hesitating now. AMD’s newest “Trinity” APUs have finally arrived! With more processing power and advanced onboard graphics, the new APU shows a lot of potential. In addition, the young and innovating company ASRock has exclusively brought a new auto overclocking function named “X-Boost” to all FM2 Series Motherboards, so users may have an extra 15.77% performance boost on the CPU! The FM2 Series starts with the most heavily armed FM2A85X Extreme6, which is equipped with Socket FM2, A85X (Hudson-D4) chipset, Premium Gold Caps, Digi Power, AMD Radeon HD 7000 series graphics and DirectX11.
Well it is that time of year again, back to school. If you are not already back to school or even if you are AMD announced today on their blog that they are rolling out a new member of the FX family and prices are getting lower across the entire FX series and the first generation AMD A-Series APU’s. The AMD FX-4130 processor, for enthusiasts who like their graphics (GPU) interchangeable and upgradeable, is a 4-core CPU that clocks slightly below a 4GHz operating frequency in a 125W thermal envelope. Suggested retail price for the part is a highly competitive $112.
When it comes to netbooks and small form factor PC’s Intel really has taken over. The Atom chip really made things affordable and gave netbooks enough power to do basic tasks. At CES 2011 AMD announced its Fusion Family of Accelerated Processing Units (APUs). These chips have a single die design with multi-core CPU technology, powerful DirectX 11 discrete level graphics and a dedicated high-definition video acceleration block. AMD sat down with us and discussed their new Fusion APU’s and what products we can expect to see with a Fusion APUs in them.
