Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) updates its A-Series line-up of desktop and notebook Accelerated Processing Units (APUs), further improving its family of dual- and quad-core APUs with features such as more responsive multi-tasking, long battery-life, vivid graphics, lifelike games, lag-free videos and enhanced multimedia performance.

 A-Series APUs

A-Series APUs offer more responsive multi-tasking, long battery-life and enhanced multimedia performance.

For desktop users, AMD extends its overclocking pedigree to the APU; for the first time users can tune both x86 and graphics settings in a single processor for boosted performance.

The updated AMD A-Series APUs combine up to four x86 CPU cores with up to 400 Radeon cores, delivering powerful DirectX11-capable, discrete-level graphics and dedicated HD video processing on a single chip. These new APUs increase performance and deliver a richer feature set than existing AMD A-series APUs. Also, only AMD APUs offer AMD Dual Graphics for an up to 144 per cent visual performance boost when a select APU is paired with a select AMD Radeon HD 6500 Series graphics card, stated AMD.

The AMD A-Series family of APUs also features AMD Steady Video, designed to stabilise videos during playback—making unsteady, jumpy content look steady and smooth as you watch. On select systems using AMD A-Series APUs, Internet Explorer 9 will include an AMD Steady Video plugin, unlocking one-click control to simplify access to the premium AMD Steady Video feature for video stabilisation.

All AMD A-Series processors are powered by AMD VISION Engine Software, a suite of software that provides end-users with regular updates designed to improve system performance and stability, and can add new software enhancements.

Desktop APUs in the component channel as well as systems based on the new AMD A-Series APUs will hit the retail market over the next several weeks.
