    PRESENTED BY

07:40PM EST - Done!

07:40PM EST - And we're done, nothing too earth shattering here but good to see AMD. The really exciting stuff will be what happens around 2015, it's just a matter of getting there - hopefully Kabini/Temash can help

07:38PM EST - And of course the 11.6-inch tablet using AMD's Z60 APU

07:37PM EST - Both systems use standard voltage A10 parts

07:37PM EST - 15.6-inch and 14-inch AMD A10 notebooks from Vizio

07:37PM EST - All of the Vizio PCs are Microsoft Signature, no bloatware, it's insane that this is a feature

07:36PM EST - 24-inch Vizio All-in-One running AMD A10

07:34PM EST - Now talking about AMD's partnership with Vizio

07:34PM EST - Richland looks like Trinity with a software update

07:33PM EST - Kaveri will be 2H2013 with GCN support

07:33PM EST - Temash demos: 1) showing better GPU performance than Clover Trail, 2) showing 1080p gaming performance

07:30PM EST - Temash: dual/quad-core, less than 5W, goes into fanless designs - full Windows 8 compatibility

07:29PM EST - CPU + GPU performance gives it an advantage over the i3, obviously non GPU accelerated workloads won't look as good

07:29PM EST - Now Temash - tablet APU

07:28PM EST - 15W Kabini TDP, running OpenCL image processing workload

07:27PM EST - Comparing Kabini and a Core i3-3217U Ultrabook

07:27PM EST - Kabini - 50%+ performance increase from Brazos 2.0, first quad-core x86 SoC, shipping 1H2013

07:26PM EST - Face login is self explanatory, screen mirror pushes your display to other devices wirelessly

07:26PM EST - Use integrated front facing camera to recognize gestures

07:25PM EST - These sound like GPU computing applications that leverage the APU hardware

07:25PM EST - New software with Richland systems that enable things like gestures, face login, screen mirror, etc...

07:24PM EST - 20% - 40% increase in performance over AMD A8/A10 Trinity systems

07:24PM EST - Talking about Richland

07:23PM EST - HP AMD Sleekbook announced today as well - 15.6" system with touch

07:21PM EST - ASUS is taking the stage to talk about their AMD platforms

07:20PM EST - Recapping 2012 successes in the APU/CPU space

07:19PM EST - We want Kabini details

07:19PM EST - Now going to talk about APUs

07:18PM EST - Increasing performance year over year in each segment by 25%

07:18PM EST - 2nd gen GCN architecture

07:18PM EST - Talking about the Radeon HD 8500M, 8600M, 8800M GPUs

07:16PM EST - "we intend to continue to lead in this market"

07:16PM EST - 3 of 4 available consoles today, all have AMD hardware - so will the ones in the future

07:15PM EST - AMD is partnering with a CiiNOW - cloud gaming platform to stream 3D gaming content to lightweight clients

07:14PM EST - The latter is pretty easy when Nintendo, Sony and MS all will use AMD GPUs next gen

07:14PM EST - AMD wants to lead in the 4 corners og gaming: content, client, cloud and console

07:14PM EST - PC gaming hardware remains a very large and relevant market

07:13PM EST - Now talking about AMD's position on the Green500 list

07:12PM EST - Holding up the "ultimate AMD gaming notebook"

07:11PM EST - Recapping 2012 GPU launches

07:10PM EST - Talking about Radeon Graphics now

07:10PM EST - First quad-core SoC: Kabini

07:10PM EST - The 2013 lineup: Solar System/Sea Islands (GPUs), Richland & Kaveria (APUs), Kabini (ultrathins), Temash (tablets)

07:09PM EST - Going to talk about AMD's execution for the rest of the event

07:09PM EST - Talking about surround computing and how to bring that to reality, a lot of this sounds like what Carrell was trying to do before he was let go - Holodeck by 2016 right?

07:08PM EST - Lisa is going to talk about Vision and Execution

07:08PM EST - Lisa Su just took the stage

    AMD's news are just OK. Nothing exciting. I guess they do as much as they can we no money. Marketing on the other hand was never a strong card for AMD. Give them 10 billion dollars and they will fail again in marketing. Someone should had explain them why you don't take your home cinema equipment to do a presentation at CES but, nevermind...

    Anyway, waiting for Temash. This is the most interesting hardware from AMD because no one trusts an Intel gpu no matter where he/she finds it, in a desktop, in a laptop or now in a tablet.

    Just to be clear, Intel's tablet GPU isn't Intel designed. It is an Imagination Technologies design. You know, the same company behind the graphics on many Android phones, tablets, and the entire Apple phone/tablet stack. The particular design they are using is slow, but just as proven as any of their other chips. I don't see a trust issue here.

    That said, I'm also eagerly awaiting Temash. Tile based deferred rendering will only go so far. In my opinion, Immediate Mode Rendering will succeed it in the tablet space when geometries get sufficiently complex. nVidia is ahead of the curve on this one and pushing the market towards IMR. Qualcomm seems to understand this transitory period the best as their chips can render both Tile and IMR modes. Even ARM only defers parts of the pipe while using IMR on the rest. I have to wonder how Imagination will adapt when the market starts the major shift. ATi will likely pursue the IMR path, and by the time they hit market, the transition will probably already be in swing. This will allow them to take full advantage of their architecture immediately, taking advantage of the diligent work nVidia had put in to get developers on board. Further, unlike Tegra, they have the additional advantage of supporting a plethora of legacy x86 games that are already designed for GPU that run in IMR mode. I have no doubt they can keep GPU idle and near idle power extremely low either. I just hope the CPU portion is fast enough to make productivity applications feel less like a netbook and more like a laptop while keeping power low enough to actually use as a tablet.

    Err, scratch that. For some reason I had it in my head that these would launch Q42013/Q12014. That said, there are still the legacy x86 titles, the fact that there isn't an overwhelming abundance of tile based deferred rendering games in the Win8/RT market place, and the fact that most(all?) WinRT devices sport an IMR capable chip. It'll be interesting to see where things pan out.

    The trust issue comes from the software side of things. GMA500 / 600 / etc. have terrible performance and application compatibility that was never repaired. Unfortunately I haven't yet used a single Intel solution that didn't suffer from some software related drawback or another.

    It's not a gaming chip.
    What was incompatible that should have been compatible ?
    What software related drawbacks ?
    How about some real info?

    After this presentation, I am pretty sure AMD will not make it to 2015.
    I am no particular brand fan, I actually own mostly their products, but from a professional point, I see no light for them. They will simply not make enough money to survive until some breakthrough happens. The ARM tide will kill them.

    Actually AMD is coming up. They have the most efficient APUs for Ultramobile laptops (Trinity, Richland, Kaveri), for Tablets (Hondo, Temash), they will rule the Clouds and Consoles, such as PS4 and XBoX 720. Reply

    Industry expects growth in low energy data servers, small/home data servers, cheap tablets, cheap smart phones.
    Ultramobile laptops, expensive tablets and consoles are not expected to have growth in revenue anytime soon - hence, unless AMD doubles or triples its market there, will just not make enough revenue.
    I agree, they have very refined products now, just saying the marketing environment they enter is too tough.

    Ah but did you forget the purchase of Seamicro a little while ago? They're already in those low power data center and home server markets, they're developing future products for them right now, tames and hondo will be in those cheap tablets, but your right about the smart phone market, I guess you can be everywhere at once. At least not when they are as small as they are, honestly things wouldn't be so bad for them if Intel weren't so ready and able to bulldoze everyone else into compliance with their standards. Reply

    AMD fanboys destroyed amd. With fanboys like that, no enemies are needed.
    They constantly begged for lower priced cheapo crap.

    They constantly hung on until nVidia or Intel drove the amd price on GPU or CPU's into the poorboy dirt then robbed AMD with a discount, all the while hating on Intel and nVida.

    They screamed for open source and attacked nVidia instead of demanding AMD MAN UP in the software and drivers area.

    They constantly lied online, in all forums, and were raging little beasts, instead of directing the faults of amd gpu's and cpu's AT AMD, everyone else was attacked while they coddled their crap product and gave it every break known to man and aliens.

    Thus - amd is near death. It's PR produced fanboys have just about destroyed it.
