AMD's Kaveri chips bring computing, graphics closer in function and name

Mark Hachman | Jan. 8, 2014
AMD said Monday that the two new members of its A-series "Kaveri" chips are now available for preorder, and launching January 14. But the biggest update to its new hybrid CPUs with integrated graphics may be one of terminology.

All told, the new Kaveri chips should offer a total compute power of 856 gigaflops. Both chips will have support for AMD's TrueAudio technology, Graphics Core Next architecture with AMD's Mantle technology, and will be powered by AMD's Steamroller processor architecture.

To date, AMD has struggled to hold its ground against mighty Intel. Kaveri may just be the answer — or it might not.
