AMD announced its 2013 Elite A-Series Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) for desktops, codenamed “Richland”, which delivers a superior PC solution with increased computational performance, discrete-level graphics and an easy upgrade infrastructure. At COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2013, AMD showcased the complete breadth of its 2013 APU portfolio with the launch of the new Elite A-Series APU for desktops which power a diverse range of OEM systems and feature new generations of software and applications that harness the unrivaled compute power of the 2013 AMD APU product lineup: the fastest AMD APUs ever.“The new AMD A-Series APU is ideal for desktop PC builders and mainstream gamers wanting outstanding performance for their money, and today AMD delivers an excellent new follow-on to the recently announced mobile lineup,” said Bernd Lienhard, corporate vice president and general manager, Client Products Division at AMD. “The combination of high-performance, third-generation desktop APUs with our existing portfolio of low-power, mobile APUs gives us our strongest-ever lineup of products for our customers and our technology partners.”

2013 Elite A-Series APUs Break the Mold to Enable Innovative PC Solutions

Since its introduction in 2011, the APU quickly became the fastest growing category of processors for AMD, powering everything from the Microsoft Xbox One and Sony PlayStation 4 to new generations of notebooks, tablets, desktop PCs, low-power servers and embedded devices. AMD extends its leadership in the category with the introduction of its new 2013 Elite A-Series APUs for desktop PCs. This APU provides higher performance and innovative new features to benefit users. The new AMD A-Series APUs combine AMD “Piledriver” CPU architecture with AMD Radeon™ HD 8000 Series graphics on the FM2 motherboard infrastructure. The ability to support existing A85X, A75 and A55 platforms as well as forward compatibility with FM2+ motherboards provides users the ability to buy now with the flexibility to upgrade as new platforms come to market. In addition, these APUs feature maximum clock speeds over 4 GHz for next generation compute workloads.Utilizing the latest AMD Radeon HD 8000 Series graphics, the Elite A-Series combines the CPU and up to 384 Radeon parallel processing cores to offer up to 15 percent increased graphics performance over its predecessor1, the AMD Second Generation APU (formerly codenamed Trinity,) and winner of the 2012 Best Choice of COMPUTEX TAIPEI award. The Elite A-Series APU for desktops supports newAMD Radeon™ Memory Gamer Series at 2133 MHz. When paired with an A-Series APU, the DDR3-2133 MHz Radeon Memory Gamer Series will give up to a 13 percent performance increase over DDR3-1866 MHz memory2.
