AMD to offer Kaveri with Battlefield 4

In an attempt to make its upcoming Kaveri APU more popular with gamers and hardware enthusiasts AMD has shared plans to add a free copy of Battlefield 4 with every A10-series Kaveri chip when the new architecture debuts in 2014.

According to analysts this can be a really smart move as the new chips will likely cost less than USD 200. The inclusion of a title that retails for USD 60 will be a really nice way of attracting attention. While hardcore gamers will likely turn the offer down mainstream gamers will probably pay some attention not only because of the game but also because of some preliminary benchmark results of Kaveri that show the chip is faster than the Intel Core i5-4670 in certain benchmarks.

Indeed a slide with information on the new AMD chip claims that the AMD A10-7850K Kaveri chip is 50 per cent faster than the Core i5-4670 processor on the Haswell architecture in the Bacemark CL benchmark that measures GPGPU performance in OpenCL environments. In addition the Kaveri A10-7850K processor is 40 per cent faster than the Core i5-4670 in 3DMark Firestrike.

The Kaveri chips will come with two x86 Steamroller modules with two integer execution engines per module and one shared floating point unit. The chip will also feature two 128-bit FMAC units, one MMX unit, a HUMA shared memory controller and integrated Radeon R7 graphics with 512 stream processors.

The first Kaveri chips are expected in January 2014.
