AMD announced today that it’s releasing updated versions of its award-winning C and E series APUs (Accelerated Processing Units). These APUs are advanced hybrids of CPUs and GPUs that packs in plenty of graphics and processing power into an efficient and space-saving chip to power mobile computing devices such as laptops and netbooks.
The updated C and E series APUs will deliver enhanced HD graphics capabilities, performance boosts with enhanced memory, DisplayPort++ support for connecting to any HDMI or DisplayPort-enabled monitor or TV, and an extended battery life. The C series now has a resting battery life of up to 12 hours, while the E series is now up to 10.5 hours.
The updated E series will also feature DDR3 1333 support for enhanced memory bandwidth as well as faster performance and video playback. Additionally, it will support HDMI 1.4a connections, which allows for viewing 3D pictures and home video on 3D-enabled TVs and displays. Notebooks, netbooks, and other small form factor mobile PCs and all-in-one desktops using these updated APUs are available starting today.
