AMD rolls out 12-Core APU

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has launched the latest addition to its A-Series fourth-generation accelerated processing units, a chip with up to 12 cores that can be paired with the vendor’s Mantle technology for gamers. The 12 cores will be a combination of four CPUs and eight GPUs and will incorporate Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) features, including the sharing of memory, the ability to view the compute and graphics capabilities as a single processor, and the capability to more easily move workloads to whichever one is most needed. The APU boasts AMD’s Radeon R7 Series graphics, AMD said. The AMD A10-7800 accelerated processing unit (APU) will be available worldwide by the end of the month, it added.
