AMD Highlights Plans for the Transition to the 28nm Process

AMD is a company known for the continual and elaborate work on the development and improvement of all product lines, as well as technological standards. Thus, the coming 2013 year is supposed to be portentous for the company in terms of the implementation of 28nm standards in their APU. AMD has recently voiced the plans for the change of the Trinity APU to a new model, codenamed Richland, and the transition to 28nm technological process.

The new APU, Richland, is presumably to be released in two versions: dual-core and quad-core. It will support a number of high-performance technologies, such as Blu-ray 3D, dual graphics, Open CL, AMD turbo core overclocking, and some others.

According to the preliminary information, Richland will employ FM2 socket (which Trinity employs) and Radeon 8000 series DirextX 11 GPU. This GPU will be furnished with 128 cores in dual-core model line, and with 384 cores in the high-end A10 APU. The same number of cores has been implemented in …
