Designed to empower the best user experience on today’s most popular and innovative PCs, AMD from its barrio has announced its third-generation Mainstream and Low-Power Mobile Accelerated Processing Units (APUs). By way of combining category-leading compute performance with unique features and rich user interactions, the 2014 AMD Mainstream and Low-Power Mobile APUs (formerly codenamed “Beema” and “Mullins”, correspondingly) are the ideal choice for consumer and commercial client devices alike. These new mobile APUs feature up to four newly-designed x86 CPU cores with updated, industry-leading AMD Radeon graphics and a hardware-level data security solution based on the ARM Cortex-A5, all on a single, power-sipping system-on-chip (SoC). Products based on these new APUs are already announced by Lenovo and Samsung, with many more expected on-shelf in time for the 2014 back-to-school shopping season.

Bernd Lienhard, AMD Corporate Vice-President & General Manager, Client Products, alleged, “These processors combine the latest core technologies – including the first-ever ARM-based security solution on an x86 processor – with user experiences that will delight consumer and commercial buyers alike in a package that is impressively energy efficient.”

The new accelerated processors come equipped with the latest hardware features, impressive performance increases, and facilitate differentiated software experiences for more natural user interaction, a best-in-class video streaming experience, and a full Android experience on Windows-based PCs using BlueStacks software optimized for AMD.
