AMD announces Carrizo and Carrizo-L release time period

AMD has shared more on its plans regarding the future release of the Carrizo and Carrizo-L hybrid processors. According to the company the chips will be announced in H1 2015 while the first notebooks and AIO PCs based on this hardware will appear in mid-2015.

Carrizo will be a high performance chip, while Carrizo-L will be a mass-produced processor with lower performance. Both chips will have full support for Microsoft DirectX 12, OpenCL 2.0, AMD Mantle, AMD FreeSync and Microsoft Windows 10. The flagship Carrizo will be based on all-new AMD Excavator cores and will have integrated Radeon graphics. These components will be combined in a system-on-chip (SoC) solution that meets all Heterogeneous Systems Architecture (HSA) 1.0 requirements. Carrizo-L will be based on Puma+ cores and AMD Radeon R graphics. The two processors will also have AMD Secure Processor technology that provides support for ARM TrustZone technology.

It’s too early to say anything about pricing so no wonder there’s no information on this topic.
