ASUS Announces AM1M-A and AM1I-A Motherboards

ASUS_AM1I-A

AMD launched two new motherboards, the AM1M-A and the AM1I-A, for the latest AMD Am1 socket SoC (ie Kabini) Athlon and Sempron series APUs. These motherboards will feature ASUS 5X Protection safeguards against short-circuits and electrical surges with technology such as DIGI+ VRM. They will come with USB 3.0 Boost with UASP module and UEFI BIOS. The AM1M-A board is micro ATX form factor while the AM1I-A is the mini-ITX form factor. Both boards have two DIMM slots that supports DDR3 up to 32GB. While the micro ATX board has one PCIE 2.0 x16 slot that operates at x4 speed, the mini-ITX board has PCIE 2.0 x4 slot. Both boards will have HDMI, DVI-D, and D-Sub for multi-monitor support. They will also have one Gigabit Lan courtesy of Realtek 8111GR, 8 channel audio, two SATA 6 Gbps ports, eight USB 2.0 ports, TPM header, and one LPT header. The AM1M-A ... Read More »

AMD_Logo

Today at the APU13, AMD has officially put a date on the availability of the Kaveri APU. The initial availability is set for January 14th, 2014, which is right after CES. AMD is expected to have more detail at CES 2014. The initial launch will be the desktop chip with the notebook and others (servers, embedded, etc) following sometimes in 2014. This is different than what AMD has done in the past with the Trinity and the Richland APU.  While AMD has not release much information about Kaveri. We know that it will work on FM2+ socket. Kaveri will bring many features such as heterogeneous queuing (hQ) and heterogeneous uniform memory access (hUMA). In addition, since Kaveri will have the GCN based GPU, it will feature many of the latest technology that is also found on the current generation of the AMD R series GPU. The APU will support AMD ...

AMD Announced Unified SDK 2.9 and Media SDK 1.0

AMD_Logo

The upcoming “Kaveri” APU is one of the most anticipated product from AMD as it finally brings exciting new technology such as heterogenous queing (hQ) and heterogenous uniform memory access (hUMA). Today at the AMD developer conference, the APU13, AMD has announced a new unified SDK that is aimed to help developers to take advantage of the upcoming chip’s new technology. Kaveri is going to be a very big thing for AMD and is going to a very exciting product. With Kaveri, AMD is going to bring both the CPU and the GPU to equal footing (and even possibly other processors in the future). In order for it to succeed, software need to be optimize to take advantage of chip, specially the GPU power inside the chip.  The new APP SDK 2.9 adds support for the latest APU and CPU. It also features improved CodeXL Developer tool Suite. New libraries are added ... Read More »

AMD Introduces heterogeneous Queuing (hQ)

Heterogeneous Queuing Presentation_Page_10

AMD today brings the latest implementation of the heterogeneous computing with the introduction of the heterogeneous queuing (hQ). As you may recall, AMD founded the Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) Foundation with other chipmakers and industry giants such as ARM, Qualcomm, and Samsung to promote a great utilization of various computing processors such as CPU, GPU, DSP and others . The goal of the HSA is to bring ISA agnostic to the chip and brings all of the computing resources to equal footing.

AMD Richland A10-6800K AND A10-6700 Review

A_Series

Not letting Intel grab all of the spotlight, AMD has officially released the desktop version of the upgraded Trinity APU codenamed Richland. While Richland does not bring any architectural change over the Trinity, AMD is able to deliver a decent amount of performance improvements by tuning the existing chip. We have got the top of the line A10-6800K and a 65W A10-6700 in our lab that we will put through our tests.  No related posts. Read More »
