AMD to release Kaveri APUs in January 2014

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has initiated the first shipments of its long-awaited Kaveri APUs to partners – a move that has shed some more light on the fate of these accelerated processing units (APUs). What’s more important is that now there’s more information regarding AMD’s plans and the Kaveri product.

The first shipments have made it possible to publish the first photos of the Kaveri APUs and they show a product that very much looks like the current AMD APUs. Although this is still an engineering sample the Kaveri APUs in the photos are made on 28 nm technology and are diffused in Germany and assembled in Malaysia. The unofficial launch date has also been set and it is January 7, 2014.

The AMD Kaveri APUs should have four Steamroller x86 cores and AMD Radeon HD graphics as well as some architectural enhancements such as heterogeneous uniform memory access, CPU and GPU cache coherency and others. Unfortunately for some users Kaveri will only be compatible with the FM2+ form factor.
