A leap in performance and energy efficiency for notebooks and all-in-one desktops
AMD’s upcoming A-Series Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) for notebooks and low-power desktops, codenamed “Carrizo,” will deliver a wealth of new, advanced power management technologies, in addition to new “Excavator” x86 CPU cores and a new generation of AMD Radeon™ GPU cores. Using a true System-on-Chip (SoC) design, AMD expects Carrizo to reduce the power consumed by the x86 cores alone by 40 percent, while also providing substantial gains in CPU, graphics, and multimedia performance over the prior generation APU.
