AMD has updated its ultra-lower power APU offering with "Mullins". Targeted at Windows tablets and based on the new Puma+ architecture, we had the opportunity to give AMD's Mullins reference tablet a quick go. So here's a quick preview of what you can expect from AMD's latest ultra low power APU.
While the focus of AMD's press conference at CES 2014 was mostly on its new desktop performance APU, Kaveri, the big red also took this opportunity to show off a few reference devices designed around the upcoming Mullins APU. We show you a preview of how these devices might look and function. Also, new design wins for existing Kabini and Temash APUs.
Following the official launch of AMD's next-gen APU series codenamed Kaveri, we were given a quick round of hands-on time with some of these systems. Check out what we found and our firsthand experience.
AMD has officially launched the successor to their popular Trinity and Richland desktop APUs - the Kaveri APU. Boasting a graphics engine derived from the Radeon R9 290 series Hawaii core, as well as advanced in its HSA architecture, Kaveri is stepping into uncharted territory.
Superseding the Brazos platform, AMD's new Kabini APUs are touted as the industry's first quad-core SoCs and are AMD's answer to a fast changing computing landscape. We check out the A4-5000 mobile APU to see how it performs.
AMD's latest interpretation of Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) has been brought to the desktop and mobile computing fronts in the form its Trinity A-series APUs. We've put together resources on what you need to know about these new processors and the hardware ecosystem such as motherboards and even notebooks.
With the introduction of the AMD Trinity desktop APUs that require the new AMD FM2 CPU socket, there has been a trickle of such motherboards from the usual board makers. We gathered four motherboards from ASUS, ASrock, Gigabyte and MSI that feature the AMD A85X chipset and put them to the test.
The AMD A10-5700 Trinity desktop APU is a 'quad-core' processor that's just a shade slower than the top tier AMD A10-5800K chip. With a rated clock speed of 3.8GHz, a Turbo Speed of up to 4.0GHz, a 65W TDP rating, it features a slightly slower Radeon HD 7660D graphics core. Would this multiplier-locked APU still present compelling value? We check it out!
We've seen the AMD Triniy A10-5800K APU perform admirably from an integrated graphics perspective, but can its other aspects also ring a positive bell? We tackle that question and its overall platform value in this review.
The wait for AMD desktop Trinity APUs is over. This next generation of APU is built on the mature 32nm SOI process technology and features a second revision of the Bulldozer architecture with a more powerful GPU. Step right in as we reveal its integrated graphics and its latest iteration of AMD Dual Graphics performance!
