AMD Unveils ‘Industry’s First Quad-core x86 SoCs’ at CES

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Popular tech developer AMD recently unveiled two new chips at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Shows.

While the products have yet to receive final naming, two code names including “Temash” and “Kabini” were in the mix.

Most importantly, they represent what AMD said will become “the industry’s first quad-core x86 SoCs.” And despite that it appears to be an early stage in the products’ young histories, AMD anticipates shipment dates for the first half of this year.

The company was set to demonstrate the chips’ performances via notebook and tablet computers. “With a groundbreaking new APU line-up in 2013, AMD is poised to win in high-growth consumer segments,” commented AMD Global Business Units Senior VP & GM Lisa Su in a press release.

Su went on to say, “We are developing technologies with end users in mind – to bring true surround computing and immersive experiences to our everyday lives. It is exciting to bring our industry-leading APU technologies to market, including the industry’s first x86 quad-core SoC, while building on our leadership in graphics and gaming.”

In addition to the chips, AMD also rolled out a new Radeon HD graphics processing unit. CES will conclude Friday, January 11.
