AMD to release new notebook APUs soon

There’s one thing that we have to admit when it comes to AMD – despite losing the high-end CPU market to Intel, the Sunnyvale, California-based chip company keeps its hold on the budget market by being pretty strict in its APU release schedules where new models come one after another. This fact holds true for the current generation Kabini chips too – they will soon be replaced by newer Carrizo processors.

Carrizo will be AMD’s response to the upcoming invasion of low power Intel Broadwell processors and the Core M chip. While we do not expect Carrizo to set new records, the architecture should provide increased performance and a bunch of new features. This is the place to say that Carrizo will arrive in two batches with the first one being the so-called Carrizo-L, which will launch in December 2014 to replace the current Beema and Mullins processors and the second one being regular Carrizo chips that will come out in March 2015. Both batches will compete with Intel Celeron and Pentium processors.

The specs of Carrizo are still not known well but according to some reports Carrizo will feature two or four Excavator processing cores, depending on the model, support for DDR3-2133 memory and 28 nm production process. The chips will fully support Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 as well as Linux Ubuntu and SLED operating systems. The new processors may even have an ARM micro-core somewhere inside, which handles data security.
