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

    WHY didn't you write anything about the U38N?!?

    An undervoltable A10 with decent graphics, a decent battery, a 1080p IPS touchscreen with a backlit keyboard, a 128gb SSD AND an HDD, all wrapped up in a Zenbook chassis? I haven't been so excited over a computer since I put my desktop together a long while back, but I can't seem to dig up much info about it.

    Still throwing money at the screen... Did they say anything about it?

    Argh! Just looked at a review for that and it was great right until I got to the RAM... 2GB soldered to the board? Really, Asus? Oh well, it's not like the A10 needs the memory bandwidth of dual-channel RAM or anything... oh wait. *facepalm* Reply

    Yeah, that is true. Asus screwed up that laptop with the 2GB soldered RAM. It only could worse with Single-Channel Memory. Reply

    According to the site, some models could come with 4gb of 1600mhz onboard memory. Reply

    Along with an additional DIMM slot. Reply

    "Richland looks like Trinity with a software update"

    What, no GCN?

    I had presumed that Richland was another 32nm piledriver APU, only with GCN.

    Whereas Kaveri is steamroller + GCN with all the jazzy HSA integration between the two.

    I suppose it makes sense, as GCN is built for 28nm, but it is disappointing.

    It also ties in with the rumour that the steambox uses a 384 shader GPU...........

    The comparison between Kabini and Brazos is interesting. Kabini will feature 2 to 4 Jaguar cores, so let's for argument's sake read that as 4. The Jaguar core also features a massive increase in support for ISAs as well as an improved FPU, despite being far smaller than Brazos (3.1mm2 compared to 4.9mm2).

    If we're only talking a 50% boost in general, doesn't that strike anybody else as a little worrisome, assuming we're talking 4-core Kabini A6 vs. a 2-core Zacate?

    Has it been confirmed how many memory channels Kabini will have access to? The support appears to have gone up to 1866MHz which still might indicate memory constraints especially considering how much higher clocked the GPU is compared to the first gen APUs.
