Kaveri, AMD's first enthusiast-class mobile APUs
AMD didn't sit around on its thumbs while Intel was announcing all these cool new chips, of course. On Wednesday, the company launched Kaveri, its first enthusiast-class mobile APUs. (APUs feature powerful Radeon integrated graphics that work in close concert with Kaveri's Steamroller CPU cores.) AMD claims these chips can go toe-to-toe with Intel's Core i7 Haswell chips, and even slapped the enthusiast-focused FX branding on the most powerful of these puppies.
While none quite hits 4GHz—these are mobile processors—the Turbo Boost feature in Kaveri cranks clock speeds up by nearly a full 1GHz when more power is needed.
