AMD's Seventh Generation A-Series Processors
On a press release, AMD announced that the first OEM manufacturers have launched desktop systems featuring the seventh generation AMD A-Series processors. Desktop PCs powered by AMD's APUs are now shipping, paired with the new AMD AM4 platform supporting next-gen I/O and standards and DDR4 memory.
The first designs have already came on the market, initially from Lenovo and HP. Soon, other desktop PC designs based on AMD's AM4 platform and seventh generation A-series processors will follow from various global OEM manufacturers.
Among the advantages of AMD's A-series processors are the delivery of high-speed processing, enhanced HD and UHD streaming capabilities, smooth eSports gaming and the highest memory bandwidth to date for any AMD desktop platform. The processors provide support for NVMe solid-state drives and USB 3.1.
AMD has achieved an important success with the consumer release of these new Lenovo and HP desktop PC designs. They come with benefits that are sought after by today's consumers, such better streaming video and eSports gaming experiences and a major increase in productivity performance.
According to Engadget, the new processors launched by Advanced Micro Devices show that, while company's rival Intel is busy redesigning its laptop processors, AMD is focusing more on the desktop side of personal computing. The seventh generation A-series processors for desktop PCs are based around four Excavator cores.
The A-series APUs deliver a lot of performance per watt. For instance, AMD 35- and 65-watt processors deliver the same kind of speed previously consuming over 90 watts. In a general computing benchmark such as PCMark, AMD's A12-9800 is about as fast as Intel's Core i5-6500, but around twice as fast in graphics performed on 3DMark benchmark.
