AMD shows off next gen APUs, SoCs

Written by Peter Scott



CES 2013: Temash, Kabini and Richland on track


Although AMD’s next generation APUs are not ready for prime time yet, the company managed to show off working silicon of its first proper SoC, codenamed Temash, and Kabini, at CES. AMD also shed more light on Richland, which is said to deliver a significant performance increase over previous A-series APUs.

However, AMD stopped short of talking about exact specs, but at least the new chips were shows off in action, which is always good news as it indicates that everything is on schedule. AMD showed off ultrathin notebooks and tablets designed by Vizio and Asus, all powered by its next gen chips.

However, there is still a lot we don’t know, although AMD made some quite promising claims. Richland should end up 20 to 40 percent faster than Trinity, which is pretty much in line with expectations. However, Kabini is looking even better, as it is expected to deliver a 50-percent performance boost over Brazos 2.0 parts. We told you Kabini is the chip to look out for in 2013 and if all goes well AMD could really have a winner on its hands, for the first time in years. Temash is said to deliver 100 percent more GPU performance over Hondo, so it should be more than capable of handling HD tablets.

2013 will be an eventful year for AMD and we should see Kabini, Temash and Richland in the first half of the year. However, AMD plans to kick things up a notch in the second half of the year, as 28nm Kaveri parts come on line.
