At the closing keynote of its Fusion Developer Summit, AMD provided a glimpse of its mobile APU and server CPU plans for 2013. AMD Executive VP and CTO Mark Papermaster talked about Kaveri, the company's third-generation APU, for performance and premium ultrathin devices, the Kabini for cheaper and low-power laptops and Temash, a chip designed for tablets.
On the server front the firm is working on Abu Dhabi, Seoul and Delhi, these processors will succeed Interlagos, Valencia and Zurich, respectively. Full details at The Tech Report.
AMD has three APUs in the pipeline for next year—all of which Papermaster says will deliver "no-compromise solutions" for tablets and fanless notebooks. At the high end, Kaveri will deliver four cores based on AMD's Steamroller architecture (the successor to Bulldozer and Piledriver) and integrated Radeon HD graphics. Papermaster said Kaveri will be the first AMD APU with fully shared memory and virtual shared memory. AMD expects Kaveri to fit into 15-35W thermal envelopes and to populate 13.3-15.6" notebooks with thicknesses of 0.83" or less.
For cheaper and lower-power applications, AMD is prepping Kabini, the successor to today's Zacate and Ontario APUs. Kabini will feature four Jaguar cores (Jaguar being, of course, the successor to Bobcat), Radeon HD integrated graphics, and power envelopes in the 9-25W range. Kabini-based notebooks should have 11.6-15.6" screen sizes and thicknesses in the vicinity of 0.71-0.94".
