AMD plans Z series processors for Tablets

Recommended Posts


The Z-Series APU (code-named Desna) will use less power, increasing battery life to 10.5 hours, but will still have the processing power to handle HD video and other intensive computing tasks, based on the slides posted on the site Android Community. based on the same low-power Bobcat core used in the current C- and E-Series APUs, perhaps with lower frequencies, more aggressive power management or fewer graphics cores to stretch battery life. It promises to increase rated battery life from 6.5 hours on the 2010 platform to 10.5 hours in this year’ s tablet, though it’s not clear what AMD means by the 2010 platform since the C-Series did not arrive until earlier this year. The Z-Series is part of the AMD HD Tablet Platform, a name that is meant to emphasize that the APU with DirectX 11 graphics can handle HD video streaming, hardware acceleration (Internet Explorer 9, HTML 5, Adobe Flash 10.2 and Microsoft Office 10), and 3D gaming. In addition to the Z-Series for tablets, C-Series for netbooks and E-Series for ultra-thin laptops, AMD is expected to finally announce its A4 and A6 APUs for mainstream laptops and desktops-including all-in-ones-at the Computex tradeshow in Taiwan this week. For the high-end, AMD will have the A8, a quad- or six-core CPU (code-named Zambezi) designed to be used with discrete graphics.
