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.
AMD’s APU project has really progressed over the past year. Ideally we would like an APU to be a 50/50 distribution of CPU and GPU Power. AMD’s upcoming Kaveri APU is the closest thing to it with 47% of it being made up of the GPU. Below you can see a comparison between AMD’s Kaveri and Intel’s Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge and Haswell architecture.
