AMD FX-8350 powering GTX 780 SLI vs GTX 980 SLI at 2560x1440 Wednesday, 01 October 2014 16:05 Tweaktown has compared AMD's 8350 versus Intel's 4930K with 780 and 980 SLI. So, the AMD setup is $319 and the Intel setup is $1052 - this makes the Intel setup 329% more expensive. Yes, over 300% more expensive. For 300% more cost, we're not getting more than around 10-20% more performance. This is where you really have to think about the money you're spending. Sure, you might not have gone for two GeForce GTX 980s in SLI, and opted for the Intel processor, spending an additional $600+ on the Intel setup. But why?

Digitimes believes that AMD has updated their roadmaps through 2015.

 

AMD has recently updated its product roadmap and is set to release its Hawaii-based GPUs at the end of September, Kaveri-based APUs for the high-end segment and Kabini-based APUs for the entry-level segment in the first quarter of 2014, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.

Forbes-A8-6600K and A10-6800K
Last week I ran some gaming benchmarks on AMD’s A8-6600K APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) and found that it was surprisingly competent at rendering advanced graphics — provided you’re willing to make significant compromises like dropping down to 720p and reducing overall quality.

Guru3D-AMD A10 6700
We have another AMD A10 series APU processor review ready for you guys. In this round we review the 125 EUR AMD A10 6700 APU processor, the little brother of the 6800K we just reviewed. Based on Piledriver architecture this processor slash graphics hybrid symbiosis called APU remains hard to beat in terms of features performance and well all the goodness you can expect from a great APU. Value and fun is what the platform offers.

High-performance embedded CPUs and GPUs ideal for compute intensive applications and high-end digital gaming and signage


SUNNYVALE, Calif. —8/20/2013
AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced new CPU offerings for the AMD Embedded R-Series high-performance computing platform, along with the introduction of a discrete GPU promotional program to provide embedded designers more choices for meeting demanding performance requirements. The new options include quad-core and dual-core CPUs scaling from 2.2 GHz to 3.2 GHz with Thermal Design Power (TDP) ranging from 17 to 35 watts for applications that require high performance x86 compute such as network attached storage (NAS.) To address high-end visual needs for applications like digital gaming and signage that require high-performance x86 compute coupled with industry-leading discrete graphics, AMD is introducing a new discrete GPU promotional program that provides customers with both a CPU and discrete GPU for savings of up to 20 percent1.

The new AMD R-Series CPUs offer up to 2.5X greater performance-per-dollar compared to Intel i3 processors2. The discrete graphics promotional program combines new AMD R-Series CPUs with discrete AMD Radeon™ E6460 or E6760 graphics for driving up to six independent displays3. These new options are designed to provide cost-effective solutions for maximum compute and graphics capabilities.

“There is a need for a greater variety of processor and graphics options in several market segments ranging from storage to digital signage and gaming to meet ever growing performance requirements,” said Kamal Khouri, director of Embedded Products, AMD. “The AMD Embedded R-Series CPU platform targets performance-intensive embedded applications with a new discrete graphics program to meet the diverse, high-performance requirements of the embedded engineering community. These new choices offer higher compute and graphics throughput plus compelling TCO for the embedded market.”

The new AMD Embedded R-Series CPU options are currently available, with products from Advantech, Advantech-Innocore, Aewin, DFI, MSC Embedded, Quixant and other leading original design manufacturers (ODMs). The new orderable part numbers (OPNs) are:

AMD Embedded R-Series RE464X CPU
Quad-core, 35W TDP, CPU freq. 2.3GHz, Max boost freq. 3.2GHz
AMD Embedded R-Series RE272X CPU
Dual-core, 35W TDP, CPU freq. 2.70GHz, Max boost freq. 3.2GHz
AMD Embedded R-Series RE264X CPU
Dual-core, 17W TDP, CPU freq. 2.2GHz, Max boost freq. 2.8GHz

Tom's Hardware compares AMD's Vishera, Deneb, Trinity, and Propus CPU cores.  

 

Vishera, Deneb, Trinity, and Propus are code names for some of AMD's most value-oriented processor configurations from the past couple of generations. We get our hands on several models to compare in productivity, content creation, and gaming workloads.

Lili Puting has details on the upcoming Asus VivoBook X102BA.  It will be another Temash win for AMD. 

 

It sports a 10.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, a 1 GHz AMD A4-1200 dual-core processor, and AMD RAdeon 8180 graphics.

The chip has a TDP of just 3.9 watts, which means that while this won’t be a very high performance laptop, it should get reasonably good battery life.

Media Post Agency Daily talks to AMD's new CMO Colette LaForce.  They discuss AMD's brand. 

 

“You’re not going to see us running any spots in the Super Bowl this year,” she says, adding, or any other high-profile media buys, for that matter. With the exception of placing some high trafficked billboards at one of the computer industry’s important event Meccas, say CES, LaForce says you probably won’t see much if any paid media for AMD -- at least not directly. While AMD will continue to support and fund the obligatory co-op budgets that “buy” ingredient brands distribution and some exposure through their OEM’s trade and consumer brand and retail advertising, almost all of her initial efforts will be focused at the grassroots level, including internal communications and trade communications with a heavy emphasis on social media, PR and pressing the flesh.

Sorry no more AMD train ads this year kids.

JPR reports that AMD's GPU share was up in Q2 of this year while Nvidia was down.  AMD won the battle 21.9% to 16.1% as the gap widened.  Intel's share of their lackluster integrated video that plagues so many overpriced and underpforming Macbooks also went up at Nvdia's expense.  The I think JPR, I will always think Banf "Cananada."  

 

• AMD’s shipments of desktop heterogeneous GPU/CPUs, i.e., APUs declined 9.6% from Q1 and increased an astounding 47.1% in notebooks. The company’s overall PC graphics shipments increased 10.9%.
