AMD Announces Its Most Advanced Mobile APUs for Consumer and Commercial Notebooks

AMD, the Market leader in Manufacturing the Best Graphics Card in the Philippines launched today its latest innovation in the Graphics Imaging Technology. AMD, having 40% market in the desktop category, now pioneers the first Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) that has the CPU and GPU into a single processor into its new 2014 Performance Mobile APUs designed for ultrathin and high-performance mobile PCs, bringing the features and capabilities of the popular and powerful AMD A-Series APU family (codenamed “Kaveri”) to power-efficient notebooks for both personal and professional use. The new mobile APUs mark the debut of Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) features and Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture for mobile devices, establishing them as AMD’s most advanced mobile APUs to-date.

“This latest breakthrough from AMD is a total package of superior compute performance, striking graphics, and cost-effective power use with leading technologies in the industry, making the 2014 AMD A-Series APUs a potent force in today’s computing generation,” said Ryan Sim, General Manager for AMD Far East Ltd in the ASEAN region. “This introduction of the latest line of APUs to the Philippine market is part of our vision to improve and ultimately transform the computing experience of Filipino consumers.” The announcement of the 2014 Performance Mobile APU family features AMD’s first FX-branded enthusiast-class APU for notebooks, and follows the recent introduction of AMD’s 2014 Low-Power and Mainstream APUs.

So for gaming afficianados, Photographers, Videographers and Graphics Artists, this is a big deal that makes the work and video rendering faster. From 12.9 frames per second, it can do 35 frames per second since the processing comes separate with the onboard GPU and has a dedicated VRAM of 2G and can do L1 and L2 cache.

It also gives a longer battery life of 9 hours and heat dessipation is also considered as it is designed for the mobile lifestyle. It’s really pedal to the metal! It can also give you dolby surround upto 12 audio-channels to make improve your listening pleasure. The APIs are also open for the gaming developers that will help them increase and expand gaming productivity.
