AMD plans new GPUs and APUs for Q2 2015

AMD plans new GPUs and APUs for Q2 2015

AMD has started the new year with some news and financial results – while the US chip maker has nothing to boast in the financial field, losing both money and market share again, the company has outlined a rather ambitious plan to capture users’ hearts. The catch is that all of this will happen after March 2015.

AMD’s CEO Lisa Su has stated AMD would release new APUs and GPUs only in Q2 2015 but the new company products will have some features worth noting. AMD will offer a new APU called Carrizo in desktop and notebooks versions. The chip will come with AMD’s new Excavator computational cores and a new integrated graphic core that will feature the new Graphics Core Next 1.2 architecture, which happens to be the same one featured in the Tonga GPUs. In Q2 2015 the market will also see the new AMD Opteron “Seattle” enterprise processors that will come with up to eight 64-bit ARM Cortex-A57 cores. Then we will see the new Radeon R9 300 line of graphics cards that will battle NVIDIA’s latest GeForce GTX 9×0 family. The upcoming Radeon R9 380X flagship will come with 4096 GCN 1.2 cores and 4 GB of HBM (high bandwidth memory). A bit later AMD will also launch mid-range Radeon R 300 series graphics cards.

Of course, right now it is too early to say anything on release dates and pricing.
