AMD logoAt the second day of Taipei's Computex, AMD introduced its new 2014 Performance Mobile APUs designed for ultrathin and high-performance mobile PCs. The new "Kaveri" release uses the features of the AMD A-Series APU to power notebooks for both personal and professional use. The new APUs mark the debut of Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) features and Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture for mobile devices. Also released is the AMD Pro line, designed with business-class performance in mind.

The new AMD Kaveri release features up to 12 compute cores, with four CPU and eight GPUs to deliver processing power.
