07:40PM EST - Done!

07:40PM EST - And we're done, nothing too earth shattering here but good to see AMD. The really exciting stuff will be what happens around 2015, it's just a matter of getting there - hopefully Kabini/Temash can help

07:38PM EST - And of course the 11.6-inch tablet using AMD's Z60 APU

07:37PM EST - Both systems use standard voltage A10 parts

07:37PM EST - 15.6-inch and 14-inch AMD A10 notebooks from Vizio

07:37PM EST - All of the Vizio PCs are Microsoft Signature, no bloatware, it's insane that this is a feature

07:36PM EST - 24-inch Vizio All-in-One running AMD A10

07:34PM EST - Now talking about AMD's partnership with Vizio

07:34PM EST - Richland looks like Trinity with a software update

07:33PM EST - Kaveri will be 2H2013 with GCN support

07:33PM EST - Temash demos: 1) showing better GPU performance than Clover Trail, 2) showing 1080p gaming performance

07:30PM EST - Temash: dual/quad-core, less than 5W, goes into fanless designs - full Windows 8 compatibility

07:29PM EST - CPU + GPU performance gives it an advantage over the i3, obviously non GPU accelerated workloads won't look as good

07:29PM EST - Now Temash - tablet APU

07:28PM EST - 15W Kabini TDP, running OpenCL image processing workload

07:27PM EST - Comparing Kabini and a Core i3-3217U Ultrabook

07:27PM EST - Kabini - 50%+ performance increase from Brazos 2.0, first quad-core x86 SoC, shipping 1H2013

07:26PM EST - Face login is self explanatory, screen mirror pushes your display to other devices wirelessly

07:26PM EST - Use integrated front facing camera to recognize gestures

07:25PM EST - These sound like GPU computing applications that leverage the APU hardware

07:25PM EST - New software with Richland systems that enable things like gestures, face login, screen mirror, etc...

07:24PM EST - 20% - 40% increase in performance over AMD A8/A10 Trinity systems

07:24PM EST - Talking about Richland

07:23PM EST - HP AMD Sleekbook announced today as well - 15.6" system with touch

07:21PM EST - ASUS is taking the stage to talk about their AMD platforms

07:20PM EST - Recapping 2012 successes in the APU/CPU space

07:19PM EST - We want Kabini details

07:19PM EST - Now going to talk about APUs

07:18PM EST - Increasing performance year over year in each segment by 25%

07:18PM EST - 2nd gen GCN architecture

07:18PM EST - Talking about the Radeon HD 8500M, 8600M, 8800M GPUs

07:16PM EST - "we intend to continue to lead in this market"

07:16PM EST - 3 of 4 available consoles today, all have AMD hardware - so will the ones in the future

07:15PM EST - AMD is partnering with a CiiNOW - cloud gaming platform to stream 3D gaming content to lightweight clients

07:14PM EST - The latter is pretty easy when Nintendo, Sony and MS all will use AMD GPUs next gen

07:14PM EST - AMD wants to lead in the 4 corners og gaming: content, client, cloud and console

07:14PM EST - PC gaming hardware remains a very large and relevant market

07:13PM EST - Now talking about AMD's position on the Green500 list

07:12PM EST - Holding up the "ultimate AMD gaming notebook"

07:11PM EST - Recapping 2012 GPU launches

07:10PM EST - Talking about Radeon Graphics now

07:10PM EST - First quad-core SoC: Kabini

07:10PM EST - The 2013 lineup: Solar System/Sea Islands (GPUs), Richland & Kaveria (APUs), Kabini (ultrathins), Temash (tablets)

07:09PM EST - Going to talk about AMD's execution for the rest of the event

07:09PM EST - Talking about surround computing and how to bring that to reality, a lot of this sounds like what Carrell was trying to do before he was let go - Holodeck by 2016 right?

07:08PM EST - Lisa is going to talk about Vision and Execution

07:08PM EST - Lisa Su just took the stage

    The wait for Kaveri is driving me crazy. I can't believe Richland is on 32nm, which probably means it's gonna be a huge disappointment, and the desktop/server lineup is just in limbo while the world passes by them. Reply

    Richland at 20-40% performance increase a disappointment????? Are you crazy? Thats on the same 32nm process as Trinity, so quite amazing, what Trinity was supposed to be to begin with. Just confirming a 2013 release for Kaveri is great news. You see, now all of the Trinity laptops can just be refreshed FAST in 1H13 with Richland APUs and 8000M GPUs, no design changes for OEMs. Thats huge for volume shipments fast. And everyone who already got a Trinity can upgrade their laptops with Richlands for what they wanted to begin with.

    I am waiting for Kaveri though. Not stressing for new laptop yet anyway. I have a recent Vishera dekstop with an HD7850 GPU waiting for an HD8870 xfire mate in 2013, and Steamroller FX CPU in 2014.

    My GF might be getting a Quad core Kabini touch notebook very soon though.

    I'm a little confused with these names. Wasn't Richland supposedly the original codename for the low-end Piledriver APUs? Reply
  • Rontalk - Wednesday, January 09, 2013 - link

    Richland is Trinity 2.0 Reply
  • silverblue - Wednesday, January 09, 2013 - link

    I know, but it looks like a recycled codename, that's all. :) Reply

    "The really exciting stuff will be what happens around 2015"

    WTF, AMD ?
  • kyuu - Tuesday, January 08, 2013 - link

    That's Anand talking. I don't see what's not exciting about AMD's 2013 line-up. Temash is much more exciting than Tegra 4 or Intel's tablet chips, IMO.

    Hell, I can't wait to see some reviews of that Vizio tablet using Z-60. If the battery life is good and the price is right, that's the tablet I want (until Temash arrives).
  • Spunjji - Wednesday, January 09, 2013 - link

    Agreed. I won't care about Intel in tablets until they stop peddling awful GPU solutions. People keep singing the praises of their 7W chips (partially deservedly so) with only the briefest mentions of what they'll have to do to the graphics hardware portion to hit that TDP. It will not be pretty.

    Tegra 4, meanwhile, is benefiting from the early PR start that nVidia always give their SOCs. We'll have to wait to see if it actually hits theoretical performance or not. Tegra 3 is hardly a dog, but it is one of the worst performing quad-core A9 SOCs of its generation.

    " Tegra 3 is hardly a dog, but it is one of the worst performing quad-core A9 SOCs of its generation. "

    If it's one of the worst a9 quads, how is it not a dog ?

    Please do tell about the other a9 quads that spank it... please prove it to me... I can hardly wait.... forever

    These substantial performance improvements in low power APUs bodes well for AMD's sales and future products such as Kaveri and Steamroller desktop CPUs. If AMD releases Kaveri in Q4 of '13, then the Steamroller CPU may launch in Q1 of '14?

    As far as surround display, I don't have any interest but if that's a market segment that AMD can profit from, great, go for it.
