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), this is in addition to improving performance by between 4 and 15 percent compared to frequency-independent (IPC - the number of commands executed at each clock).
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 AMD Will be realized in order to receive a product that for real change can give Fite to the hegemony of Intel On laptops of all kinds, device makers seem to believe the company from Sunnyvale is changing - with ASUS, HP, Lenovo, Toshiba And Acer are all presented as existing partners for Carrizo-based products.
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.
