AMD confirmed that its Kaveri APU will not be available this year. The company said initial consumer availability of the desktop-based version of this chip is slated for January 14, 2014. Launch dates for the notebook and server editions weren't revealed.
AMD also announced today at APU13 details about “Kaveri,” the third generation performance APU from AMD, during a keynote delivered by Dr. Lisa Su, senior vice president and general manager, Global Business Units, AMD.

“Kaveri” is the first APU with HSA features, AMD TrueAudio technology and AMD’s Mantle API combining to bring the next level of graphics, compute and efficiency to desktops (FM2+), notebooks, embedded APUs and servers. FM2+ shipments to customers are slated to begin in late 2013 with initial availability in customer desktop offerings scheduled for Jan. 14, 2014. Further details will be announced at CES 2014.
AMD also revealed some other details about Kaveri, such as that it will have hUMA (heterogeneous uniform memory access) and that it will feature up to four Steamroller cores. Around 47 percent of the APU's die is dedicated to graphics and it will pack up to eight GCN compute units. AMD says Kaveri has a maximum computing power of 856 gigaflops. The chip has 512 graphics cores and AMD showed it off with a Battlefield 4 demo, comparing a Kaveri APU with an Intel Core i7-4770K system with a low-end NVIDIA GeForce GT 630 graphics card. In Full HD mode with medium details, the AMD system was over twice as fast as the Intel configuration.
