AMD will release a 28-nm APU until the end of the year
The company AMD, as promised, on the eve of CES 2013 told of their strategic plans for the current year. Just say, a pleasant surprise was the information that the company intends to ship 28-nm APU Kaveri on two and four cores Steamroller in the second half of this year. And although it is likely the end of the year, issue 28-nm AMD solutions on the new architecture – this is what really worth the wait.
In the short term – until the summer – the company will begin shipping 32nm APU Richland. These processors are replaced APU Trinity and promise to be faster in some cases by 20% (compared to AMD A10-4600M) or 40% (AMD A8-4555M). “Surplus” of the processor and graphics performance Richland company to abandon such consumer improvement, as face recognition and gestures. submobilnyh In the niche and mobile solutions with low power consumption in the first half of the year will be released 28-nm and Kabini Temash.
At CES 2013 the planned demonstration prototype devices based on these APU, so that soon we can learn about them from the practical side of the issue. While the words of AMD can be expected that the increase in performance solutions Kabini be up to 50% compared to the product platform Brazos 2.0. Responsible for this is not only the new kernel Jaguar, and increased clock speeds, the benefit of new items are available using 28-nm process technology, instead of 40 nm, as the old products. Incidentally, processors and Kabini Temash presented by AMD as the first quad-core x86-compatible SoC. This allows it to compare data solutions not only to the platform Intel Atom, but with a more efficient processor Intel Core i3.
