TAIPEI: CHIP DESIGNER AMD showed off its fourth generation Kaveri APU chip for the first time at Computex today, during the launch of its third generation Richland desktop processor.
As the first of its kind to ship with the firm's Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA), Kaveri is said to offer increased performance and power efficiency.
We got some time with AMD's corporate VP of communications John Taylor after the press conference, who talked up improvements Kaveri has over the firm's previous generations of chips.
Taylor revealed that we should see Kaveri ship sometime "later this year", and gave us BGA and socketed versions of the new chip to inspect and compare to the size of our coins.
Pleasing the crowd with a demo of Devil May Cry 3 during the press launch, AMD showed us how graphics will look on Kaveri powered devices, before quickly hiding it backstage. µ
