CPU maker AMD announced its new Fusion A-Series (codenamed Llano) Accelerated Processing Units (APUs), which integrate CPU with GPU. The A-Series combines up to four x86 CPU cores with DirectX 11-capable discrete-level graphics and up to 400 Radeon cores along with dedicated HD video processing on a single chip.
The Fusion A-series features AMD’s Vision Engine that automatically helps digital content like videos, games and photos look their best, and the AMD Steady Video that stabilize videos during playback. It offers accelerated performance for HTML5 and Direct2D. You can expect advanced connection standards, including HDMI 1.4a, DisplayPort 1.1, and USB 3.0, and support for multiple monitors. The A-series is also 3D capable and supports 1600MHz DDR3 and low-power 1333MHz DDR3L memory.
Designed for notebooks, the Fusion A-series promises over 10.5 hours of battery life.
