A6-1450 Quad APU Is Temash

Fudzilla reports that AMD's A6-1450 APU is a Temash part.  Its for tablets and clocks at 1GHz.

 

The new Temash quad core, at least the one clocked at 1GHz, will end up branded as AMD A6-1450. It has Radeon HD 8280 graphics and the Larne reference system comes with 2GB DDR3 1066 memory. The AMD A6-1450-based tablet (hybrid) in AMD’s presentation delivers scores of 981 and 3123 in 3DMark and PCMark respectively. Last generation samples, powered by the Z-60 APU clocked at 1GHz (40nm Zacate) with 2x2GB DDR3 1066, HD 6250 graphics and Windows 7 scored 455 and 1914 in 3DMark Vantage and PCMark Vantage respectively.

AMD Intros FX-6350 and FX-4350 Vishera Class CPUs

Xbit details AMD releasing new Vishera class CPUs the FX-6350 and FX-4350 which are 6 and 4 core CPUs respectively. 

 

The new AMD FX processors available for pre-order at ShopBLT online store are FX-4350 as well as FX-6350. The new central processing units feature much higher (200MHz – 400MHz) clock-speeds than previous offerings and therefore it is logical to expect decent performance gains over predecessors. AMD FX-4350 costs $142.86, whereas AMD FX-6350 is priced at $154.76.

AMD Reveals 5 To 25W 28nm Jaguar CPU

The Inquirer reports on the successor to Bobcat, Jaguar.  Its a 28nm process chip with 4 cores.

 

Jaguar has improvements over Bobcat in terms of instructions per cycle (IPC), clock frequency, and power consumption. The load-store unit has been redesigned for significant performance and power improvements over AMD’s previous generation products, and the floating point unit natively supports 128-bit operation, according to the presentation.

AMD Keeping It Hetero

The Inquirer relays that AMD continues to believe a heterogenous architecture is the way to go.

 

AMD has reiterated the need for a heterogeneous architecture that makes use of both CPU and GPU resources, claiming that it will support increases in programmer productivity and lead to improvements in device efficiency.

Chipmaking's Future

Tech Report covers the Common Platform Technology Forum.  It is the gathering of Globalfoundries, IBM, and Samsung where they talk about the future of fab processes.  

 

One thing we don't know is how GlobalFoundries' highest-profile customer will take advantage of this new process tech. With the changes in leadership at AMD has come a more conservative approach to both roadmap disclosures and process technology transitions. All we know at present is that the next-generation "Kaveri" APU, successor the Trinity and Richland and competitor to Ivy Bridge, is slated for 28-nm production late in 2013. Several of AMD's other products, including the low-power "Temash" APU and the "Sea Islands" graphics chips, will be manufactured by TSMC at 28 nm. We'd expect future Opteron and FX processors to make the transition to 20LPM or 14XM at GlobalFoundries, but neither AMD nor GloFo is willing to talk about specifics.
