AMD refreshes APU lineup

AMD has updated its C-and E-series Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) lineup for notebooks, netbooks, all-in-one systems and desktop PCs.

An AMD rep told TG Daily the new APUs boast optimized HD graphics and 12 hours of “resting” battery life on a single charge.

The newest APUs also support DDR3 1333 for enhanced memory bandwidth, faster performance and streamlined video playback.

“Today’s PC users want stunning HD graphics and accelerated performance with all-day battery life and that’s what AMD Fusion APUs deliver,” said AMD spokesperson Chris Cloran. 

“With these new APUs, we’re bringing premium features to entry-level products that let users get a richer computing experience.”  

Thus far, AMD has shipped over 12 million APUs and sold more than five million of the popular C- and E-Series units in Q2 2011. 

The new APUs are available today in a number of systems from various vendors.
