    It is the name of a river in south India, worshiped by many as life-giver, arguably so. Reply

    As a matter of fact Kabini is also a river in Kerala state (south India). While Kaveri flows between two other south Indian states. Not sure of the other names. Reply

    Originates in Karnataka but main course is in Tamilnadu
    Every year the water from this river is used as a scapegoat/political issue in Karnataka to ask TN to give electricity in xchange for water. Inspite of the Supreme Court ruling in TNs favor the charade will continue on...

    The DECCAN platform itself has names of rivers flowing in the DECCAN plateau of Southern India

    Temash is a river in Belize (Central America):

    Looks like they went with a river theme for the naming.

    I am a little bit surprised, but in a good, efficiency of production kind of way. The frequency goals can't be that high though, which explains why the desktop cores of the performance segment are still Piledrivers in 2013. Ah, I just saw the previous Anand's post about the more synthesizable designs. TSMC's process must have a great potential. Reply

    Anand those graphs show only Vishera for the desktop 2012-2013, can you confirm or clarify this? Reply

    i am disappointed in their desktop roadmap.

    ditching sepang/terramar means no on-die PCIe 3.0 controller, and relying on an aging chipset stuck with off-die PCIe 2.0. also means no triple-channel memory in the enthusiast space either.

    and not only for 2012, but for much of 2013 as well!

    Yep... And AMD made that decision very consciously, apparently. No more "wild goose chases" for the ultimate high end, I guess that did them no good (probably even harm) too many times. Reply

    I guess this dashes any hopes of a "quick response" to Kepler with the already rumored HD 8900 series. Looks to be 2013 at the earliest, so if AMD releases a new high-end SKU it'll just be an OC'd or refreshed Tahiti or an X2 part. Reply

    With Kabini ... does that mean the 11.6" form factor will actually get a 4 core processor with a *gulp* capable graphics chip ??

    oh goodie...

    ..but when do we get OpenCL double-precision FP support in the GPU section of the APUs?

    I'm hoping I'm not waiting till Kalevi.
    For SP, the A8s are amazing processors for the money. If they added DP support, there'd be cheap clusters of these at every University (there's one in server room now).
