X-bit Labs reports AMD will reveal details about Jaguar at next month's Hot Chips conference. This new core is aimed at low-power, low-cost notebooks, netbooks and tablets.
It is expected that Jaguar-powered Fusion accelerated processing units will sport improved performance thanks to higher IPC (instructions per clock), enhancements related to HSA (heterogeneous system architecture) and simultaneous operation of x86 and stream processing cores. Besides, the new Fusion APUs will integrate input/output controller, which will allow to make personal computers using just one highly-integrated system-on-chip.
AMD's Jaguar cores will be utilized inside code-named Kabini and Temash accelerated processing units and will be implemented using 28nm process technology. During the show, AMD is likely to disclose whether the aforementioned Jaguar-based APUs will be made at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company or Globalfoundries.
