AMD APU Kabini
AMD APU Kabini announced in February this year , which will be the first product based on the recently detailed microarchitecture ultra-low consumption Jaguar . Kabini is comprised of up to four cores Jaguar and AMD Radeon HD graphics based on the Graphics Core Next architecture graph (the same used in the current Radeon HD 7000 Series GPUs), manufactured with 28nm manufacturing process of Global Foundries and TDPs of 9 to 25W.
Kabini replace the current Ontario and Zacate APU (Brazos platforms and Brazos 2.0 ) and will be focused on economic Ultrathins and notebooks with screens 11 “to 15″. AMD confirms that Kabini be available within the first half of this year.
AMD soc Temash
Temash is a SoC (System-on-a-Chip) based on the micro-architecture Jaguar, its specifications are very similar to those of Kabini, but also includes a FCH (southbridge) built, and has a TDP of between 3.5 to 5.9 W. Temash will focus the Tablet market and will be the replacement for the recently launched APU Hondo .
AMD has not revealed the release date of Temash, but assume that will be released between August and December of next year.
