AMD’s APU13 developers conference is well under way and the news continues to flow thick and fast. AMD it seems has its own technological revolution underway, a revolution that began with consoles adopting PC technology. A revolution that is now taking over the PC world with technology perfected within the PS4.
With the release of the next generation consoles out of the way AMD is now free to introduce this technology to the PC. Technology that includes hUMA memory architecture, TrueAudio DSP’s and Mantle compatible next generation GPU cores.
The first of these next generation PC products will be the Kaveri desktop APU, to be followed shortly after by the ultra low power APU’s Beema and Mullins. AMD’s recently demonstrated Project Discovery tablet is based on the Mullins APU. All of which will be on show at the highly anticipated CES conference, January 2014.

The desktop CPU wars are about to heat up once again with AMD preparing a revolution, a memory revolution. Kaveri will spear head this revolution with AMD’s brand new hUMA memory architecture, a technology that puts the parallel processing power of a graphics chip directly in the hands of the CPU.
The soon to be released Kaveri chip will be AMD’s first high-performance APU designed to squeeze every bit of performance out of the desktop. Performance is central to the design, a different approach for an AMD APU. For Kaveri AMD is bringing together the fastest CPU cores and latest GCN graphics chip both joined together by the new hUMA memory architecture, AMD is putting its cards on the table, hoping for a winning hand.
All signs point to a Q4 release for the new chip along with the desktop or notebook hardware that will be built around it. The release will likely coincide with that of the next generation consoles.
