Offers performance boost and long battery life
AMD has revealed that it has updated its C- and E-Series accelerated processing units (APUs) for ultrathin and value notebooks, netbooks, all-in-ones and desktop PCs with new features.
The updated APUs deliver enhanced HD graphics capabilities; performance boosts with enhanced memory; DisplayPort ++ for connecting to any HDMI or DisplayPort-enabled monitor or TV.
The company claims that the new E and C-Series product lines will deliver even longer battery life than before, with up to 10.5 hours of resting battery life on the E-Series and 12 hours on the C-Series, enabling users to work or play longer without searching for an outlet.
The new E-Series APUs offer support for DDR3 1333 for enhanced memory bandwidth and faster performance and video playback.
It also comes with HDMI 1.4a connections that allow for output of 3D pictures and home video on 3D-enabled TVs and displays.
Notebooks, netbooks, small form factor and all-in-one desktops based on these new APUs should be available starting today.
AMD said its new processors will offer a significant performance boost, and offer fast HD streaming video, sharp photos, life-like gaming through DirectX11-capable discrete-level graphics and a parallel processing engine.
AMD has shipped more than 12 million APUs, and sold more than five million of the popular C- and E-Series APUs in the second quarter of 2011.
