AMD A-Series update aimed at diverse PC designs

By

AMD's second-generation A-Series processors are intended for use in a wide range of PC styles, from ultra-thin notebooks to conventional desktops, as well as home theatre PCs and embedded systems.

The new models in AMD's A-Series family (codenamed Trinity) combine a CPU that's up to 29% faster with a graphics controller that's up to 56% faster than the previous generation. Overall performance per watt has been doubled.

Other improvements include up to 12 hours of battery life, and a set of technologies that deliver high-quality video and faster video file conversions.

"The latest OEM notebooks, ultrathins, all-in-ones and desktops based on the new AMD A-Series APU enable the best video and gaming experiences, highly responsive performance with AMD Turbo CORE, and accelerates an ever-increasing range of productivity and multimedia applications - in sleek, stylish designs at price points that make sense," said Chris Cloran, corporate vice president and general manager of the AMD client business unit.

"Our 2nd Generation AMD A-Series APU is a major step forward in every performance and power dimension, allowing users to enjoy a stunning experience without having to give up the things that matter to them most. This experience doesn't stop at mainstream notebooks. It carries over into affordable ultrathin form factors featuring the latest in AMD Radeon graphics."

PC vendors adopting the new chips include Acer, Asus, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, Sony and Toshiba. Systems and individual chips will be available later this year.
