CHIP DESIGNER AMD has launched its updated C and E series Fusion accelerated processing units (APUs) and they are available today.
These AMD Fusion chips are designed for netbooks, notebooks and all-in-on PCs. They offer a boost in performance and enhanced HD graphics capabilities. The integrated CPU and graphics chips aim to give consumers HD video streaming, sharp photos and great gaming through onboard parallel processing graphics engines.
"Today's PC users want stunning HD graphics and accelerated performance with all-day battery life and that's what AMD Fusion APUs deliver," said Chris Cloran, VP and general manager of the Client Division at AMD. "With these new APUs, we're bringing premium features to entry-level products that let users get a richer computing experience."
The updated E series chips have support for DDR3 1333 RAM and HDMI 1.4a for 3D technology. Both APUs extend battery life for laptops, with 10.5 hours on the E series and 12 hours on the C series.
Devices based on these APUs are available from today and have 'Vision Technology from AMD' or 'HD Internet' stickers on them. AMD has sold more than five million of the previous C and E series APUs during the second quarter of this year. µ
