AMD Shows Kaveri APU Based on Steamroller Architecture
At Computex 2013, AMD has demonstrated their future APU – Kaveri. They will be based on 3rd generation Bulldozer architecture, named Steamroller, which should feature a 15 – 20% improvement in instructions per clock. It will be made on a 28nm manufacturing process, which should improve its power usage and will use iGPU based on GCN cores and efficient power control. Another big change is the hUMA (Heterogeneous Uniform Memory Access) – full memory sharing between CPU and iGPU. This approach to memory usage should improve the performance of APUs by removing unnecessary bottlenecks. Kaveri will be available for purchase at the end of 2013.
