AMD to release Kaveri APUs half February 2014

Published by


AMD will announce the 28nm Kaveri APU on December 5th but they won't be available onto the market until half February 2014. AMD originally expected to start supplying its Heterogeneous System Architecture (HAS) Kaveri APUs in the second half of 2013, but according to the company's latest plans, the CPU maker will only provide two A10 and one A8 APU pilot production samples to its clients in December.

The third-generation APU is set to deliver a computing performance of 1 teraflops. The Trinity and Richland APUs are rated at 726 GFLOPS. This is around a 38% performance improvement, which shows the heterogeneous architecture AMD has adopted is headed in the right direction. Kaveri will be the first APU with true shared, unified address space between the CPU and GPU. AMD’s ‘Kaveri’ high-performance APU remains on track and will start shipping to customers in Q4 2013, with first public availability in the desktop component channel very early in Q1 2014.

‘Kaveri’ features up to four ‘Steamroller’ x86 cores, major heterogeneous computing enhancements, and a discrete-level Graphics Core Next (GCN) implementation – AMD’s first high-performance APU to offer GCN. ‘Kaveri’ will be initially offered in the FM2+ package for desktop PCs.
