output of the fourth-generation APU AMD (Kaveri) postponed to 2014




Resource extremetech.com, referring to computer makers, reported that the yield of APU AMD Kaveri will be held no earlier than February 2014. Earlier, it was reported about the appearance of the fourth-generation APU (four cores Steamroller + integrated graphics generation GCN), is designed to produce at rates 28-nanometer manufacturing process, in the second half of this year.


Industry sources suggest that the release of the first samples of AMD Kaveri will be held in December this year, while only mentioned three chips – two and one A10 A8. Recall, the main feature of the fourth-generation APU AMD is a “revolutionary heterogeneous architecture” (HSA).

One of the main reasons why the yield of hybrid of new generation has been postponed, a decline in the PC market . That is why the “white-green” decided to give up all the power and resources to the development of competitive chips for tablets and to wait with Kaveri.

It should also not forget about AMD processors for the next generation of video game consoles Xbox One and PlayStation 4, as well as a new generation of graphics chips Volcanic Islands , which is due to start production in the second half of this year. All this to the fact that the production capacity of plants GlobalFoundries limited.

The next year, AMD plans to release two lines of hybrid processors: the successors of Kabini – Beema (higher frequency and lower power consumption), and server processors Berlin. In 2015, to replace the Kaveri and Beema come Carizo processors and Nolan.

Shifting the output of hybrid processors Kaveri, AMD is getting a little time to adapt and begin to respond to the dynamically changing conditions of the PC market.

PC segment is still very important for AMD and has quite a large portion of the proceeds.
