New hope for AMD?

The chipmaker has officially announced the New Cost-effective Ambitious Vision - Ultrabooks Will Cost You Only 400 or 500 Dollars

The Computex exhibition for 2015 was undoubtedly a lot of work for AMD. The red manufacturer Not only introduced a new stationary processor וHas revealed the desired launch date for its current HBM card - She also took the stage to introduce us more deeply to her Carrizo generation, and her most significant hope for a comeback in the mobile world Since the naive Brazos days.

Carrizo is AMD's sixth core graphics processor (APU), the first to use Excavator, the fourth and final generation of the disappointing Bulldozer architecture, which does most of Intel's emphasis and attention on upgrading low-power efficiency - which should make it Worthy opponent, finally, To the mobile U chips of Chipzilla.

Although it continues to rely on the ancient GlobalFoundries 28 nm process, AMD states that the Carrizo chips offer a reduction of 40 to 50 in power consumption Compared to last year's Kaveri laptops (Based on the Steamroller cores), plus an improvement Of between 4 and 15 percentage compared to frequency independent (IPC - number of commands executed per clock pulse).

About 30 percent more transistors in the same area - and no change in production lithography

Added support for HSA 1.0 (full memory resource sharing between the processing core and built-in graphics core), support for 4K resolutions with HEVC and H.265 encoders, TrueAudio technology support for upgraded sound quality, and especially for better graphics core Than those of Intel's Broadwell-U processors Under the same thermal shell - and you can understand why we treat Carrizo with a significant potential.

It is enough that only some of her far-reaching statements Will be realized in order to receive a product that for real change can give Fite to the hegemony of On laptops of all kinds, device makers seem to believe the company from Sunnyvale is changing - with ASUS, HP, , And Acer are all presented as existing partners for Carrizo-based products.

The lack of support from manufacturers was the biggest problem In recent generations - has this time finally seen a change in trend?

While AMD's large and unknown future continues to reside somewhere in 2016 and beyond With the new Zen architecture, We find ourselves crossing our fingers and wishing a lot of success for AMD with the Carrizo chips, Which may bring a little more competition to the market And consumers who have been desperate for this for quite some time.

Three carrizo models will be offered at the beginning , All with a pair of Excavator and 512 modules or 384 units in the graphics core. In addition, all three will be able to operate in a wide range of thermal envelopes and will match, as mentioned, computers In attractive price ranges from 400 to 700 dollars

  1. I do not understand the logic of continuing to produce new generations of processors when they know in advance that they are not at Intel's performance level.

    And even if the next generation does, what reason do I have to make this change?

    They will stop wasting money on trying to keep up with the pace and focus their efforts on developing processors that will really tempt the consumer to make the transition.

    Ultra-book processors and laptops should not be at a desktop computer level.

    If the processor is sufficient for network / home / office + multimedia applications and runs the operating system smoothly while saving significant battery time then it has market potential
