AMD Announces Seventh Generation Mobile APUs at Computex in – update




AMD has announced its seventh generation Bristol Ridge APUs will be announcing during Computex. The new processor, which should be faster than its predecessor and 23 percent, will debut in the HP Envy x360.

Bristol Ridge is like the Carrizo-APUs use Excavator cores and will appear in laptops in dual- and quad-core variants with support for DDR4 memory. More details on AMD specifications not announced, but according to previous rumors involves APUs which like Carrizo and Kaveri on the 28nm process are baked. The fastest model in the series will presumably be called FX-9800P. HP today announced new laptops with that processor to .

Why did AMD benchmark results from a Bristol Ridge ‘FX and A12 processor in 3DMark11, Cinebench R15 and PCMark 8. In addition, the new processors have been tested in combination with ddr4-1866 8GB memory, while the FX-8800P, the flagship of the Carrizo-generation Intel Core i7-6500U and tested with 8GB DDR3-1600 memory. The result of the Bristol Ridge FX processor in Cinebench roughly corresponds to the score of an Intel Core i5-5200U processor. It should however be noted that AMD processors are generally in Cinebench perform less well than Intel processors. AMD has not disclosed whether the GPU has changed in Bristol Ridge relative Carrizo, or profits caused in 3DMark by the higher memory bandwidth provides DDR4.

The first laptop will be equipped with the new Bristol Ridge APU is the HP Envy x360, which is currently provided in the Netherlands and Belgium Skylake with Intel processors. The new Envy x360 again comes with Core i5 or i7 processor, but in the US there is also a variant with AMD APU. Or execution comes to the UK is not yet known. It also appears that the laptop gets a full HD screen, with an option for a 4k screen, and that the laptop is available in configurations with both an SSD and a hard drive.

The annual technology trade show Computex finds in 2016 from May 31 to June 4 in Taiwan instead.
