May 23 13
Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. launched three new additions to its 2013 A-Series and E-Series Mobile Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) lineup -- delivering solutions ideally positioned to address today's evolving PC market with dramatically increased performance and power efficiency, as well as a portfolio of unique user experiences, and superior gaming and graphics: The 2013 AMD Elite Mobility APU-- the world's first 28nm, quad-core x86 system-on-a-chip (SoC) APU designed for touch small form-factor notebooks, tablets, and hybrids 13-inches and below; The 2013 AMD Mainstream APU-- the first and only quad-core x86 SoC solution for entry-level and small-form factor touch notebooks; New, low power versions of the 2013 AMD Elite Performance APU-- offer the best graphics and compute in a performance APU for premium ultrathin notebooks. These new APUs are designed to effectively balance the needs of a wide range of new and traditional mobile PC users and are available beginning from the world's top computer manufacturers, including products announced from Acer and HP. 2013 AMD Elite Mobility APU: World's first 28nm, quad-core x86 SoC APU, delivers the best graphics experience of any SoC on the planet for touch small form-factor notebooks, tablets and hybrids, 13-inches and below, enabling a superior HD media experience and high-end gaming. Available as AMD A-Series APUs, this new platform comes in dual (A4) and quad-core (A6) configurations, combining "Jaguar" x86 Central Processing Unit (CPU) cores with Graphics Core Next AMD RadeonT HD 8000 Series graphics. Up to 172% more CPU performance per watt and up to 212% better graphics performance per watt than its predecessor1,2, and up to 12 hours of resting battery life3. Up to 45% longer battery life and nearly five times more GPU performance than the competition 4,5. Full support for 1080p touch display capability and full Microsoft Windows compatibility, including support for 'Windows Blue.' 2013 AMD Mainstream APU: Best-in-class graphics and first-in-class x86 quad core SoC delivers the ideal balance between function and affordability for entry-level and small-form factor touch notebooks. Combine either two or four 'Jaguar' x86 CPU cores with Graphics Core Next AMD Radeon HD 8000 Series graphics, enabling stunning visual performance and all-day battery life6. Quad core 2013 Mainstream APUs, a part of the 2013 AMD A-Series APU family (A4 and A6 models), are the first and only quad-core x86 solution for entry-level and small-form factor touch notebooks. Dual core versions are AMD E-Series APUs, with E1 and E2 models available. Up to 132% better visual performance per watt and up to 127% better productivity performance per watt, plus up to 25% better power efficiency than previous generations7,8,9, with up to 11 hours of idle battery life10. Up to 88% better graphics performance, up to 33% better gaming performance and up to 29% faster file compression than the competition 11,12,13. 2013 AMD Elite Performance APU: Top-of-the-line AMD A-Series APUs with A8 and A10 models that deliver the best graphics and compute in a performance APU, including elite performance and battery life, innovative features for the evolved PC user experience, and the most entertainment, all at a great value for premium ultrathin notebooks. Up to 12% better productivity performance and between 20-40% better visual performance than the previous generation14,15, including up to 51% more power efficiency in HD video playback16 and up to 13 hours of resting battery life17. Between 39-72% better gaming performance on today's leading games than the competition18. 2013 AMD Mobile APU User Experiences: All AMD APUs are designed to deliver the best user experience for the computing activities that matter most to consumer. AMD is uniquely positioned to do this due to its breadth of experience that spans not only the traditional x86 compute architecture that's best suited for productivity-focused tasks like word processing and spread sheets, but also graphics processing for today's new user interfaces, and media- and graphics-intensive workloads. And the three new AMD APUs announced offer a multitude of features related to looking at, and interacting with, mobile devices in a new way.
