“The future of user interactions is intuitive, natural interaction methods such as eyeSight's gesture recognition technology. In order to achieve enhanced touch-free capabilities additional processing power may be required. We’re excited to be working with AMD and their powerful 2013 APUs – which allow us to bring these enhanced capabilities of natural human interfaces to life.”
- Gideon Shmuel, CEO, eyeSight
“Toshiba continues to offer high quality, reliable and affordable laptops. Thanks to the 2013 AMD Mainstream APU’s (“Kabini”) quad-core performance, and increased power efficiency, we’re able to deliver powerful entry-level laptops with impressive performance.” - Hideo Kasuya, General Manager of Products Management Division, Toshiba Corporation Digital Products & Service Company
“The launch of the 2013 AMD Mobile APUs reinforces our partnership with AMD,” “The new technology makes our innovative touch-enabled editing tools more performant and the AMD APU platform enables us to enhance the user experience with richer, visual experiences and faster photo filtering.”
- Avi Muchnick, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer, Aviary
“AMD has changed the way the game is being played by building APUs with desktop quality and performance graphics, while at the same time being able to scale the devices from 3.9 watt, dual-core for ultra-mobile devices to 25 watt, quad-core high-end mobile PCs. The results will speak for themselves when the new generation of devices and PCs come out this year."

“Game players will benefit greatly from AMD’s latest Elite Mobility APU [Temash]. Blowfish titles like Razor Salvation and Siegecraft TD make use of the performance enhancements to include higher quality 3D assets and state-of-the-art pixel shaders, bringing to tablets the quality gaming experience previously limited to PCs and notebooks.”
– Ben Lee, Managing Director, Blowfish Studios
“AMD’s Elite Mobility APU [Temash] brings high performance gaming to tablets. Rebellion can now create games on mobile platforms with lower energy consumption and greater performance without compromising the overall quality of the experience. This is a huge double win for developers like us.”
- Chris Kingsley, Cheif Technologies Officer, Rebellion
“For many years, observers questioned whether x86-based systems could compete with ARM-based devices with regard to power consumption and battery life. Systems based on AMD’s new 2013 Mainstream Mobility APU (“Kabini”) and 2013 Elite Mobility APU (“Temash”) platforms, along with others based on Intel’s forthcoming Bay Trail platform, should finally eradicate the myth that you have to sacrifice x86 compatibility to improve performance per watt. Now users can have it all – great experiences based on a full Windows 8 implementation and great battery life, while still retaining the ability to run all the Windows-based applications they’ve come to know and love.”

"AMD is forging the benefits of heterogeneous systems architecture (HSA) into real products. Now that both the main processor and the graphics engine can share the same memory on a single chip, and the right tools are available for developers, workloads can be handled much more efficiently."
