Double the performance with AMD’s security processor in tow
Bye-bye Kabini and Temash. Hello Beema and Mullins. Those are the names for AMD’s two new mobile APUs announced at the APU13 Developer Summit. The promises are lofty: twice the performance per watt and PC gaming in a tablet.
The rapid shift to mobile seems to have caught x86 chip makers off guard, but on the bright side for Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), this tectonic shift in technology represents a new opportunity to perhaps do things differently than before. Maybe the outcome will be different, maybe not, but either way, we have an early look at AMD's agenda for the changing market place, and it starts with "Temash."
