AMD provided an early look at its new 2013 accelerated processing units today at a press conference during CES 2013. AMD demonstrated working silicon of its first true system on chip (SoC) APUs, codenamed “Temash” and “Kabini,” which will be the industry’s first quad-core x86 SoCs. Both APUs are scheduled to ship in the first half of 2013. AMD also introduced the new APU codenamed “Richland” which is currently shipping to OEMs and delivers visual performance increases ranging from more than 20 percent to up to 40 percent over the previous generation of AMD A-Series APUs. The follow-on to “Richland” will be the 28nm APU codenamed “Kaveri” in the second half of 2013.
