AMD boosts Fusion APUs for notebooks, ultrathins, All-in-Ones and desktops
AMD has updated its C- and E-Series Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) for ultrathin and value notebooks, netbooks, all-in-ones and desktop PCs with top-of-the-line features.

The company says these updated APUs deliver enhanced HD graphics capabilities, performance boosts with enhanced memory, DisplayPort ++ for connecting to any HDMI or DisplayPort-enabled monitor or TV and up to 12 hours of resting battery life on a single charge for the mobile platform.

Notebooks, netbooks, small form factor and all-in-one desktops based on these new APUs are available from leading manufacturers starting today.

"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 Chris Cloran, vice president and general manager, Client Division, AMD. "With these new APUs, we’re bringing premium features to entry-level products that let users get a richer computing experience."

AMD has shipped more than 12 million APUs, and sold more than five million of the popular C- and E-Series APUs in Q2 2011 alone. The updated AMD C- and E-Series APUs meet the needs of consumers who want fast and Brilliant HD streaming video, sharp photos, life-like gaming through powerful DirectX 11-capable discrete-level graphics and a parallel processing engine, as well as all-day battery life.

Additionally, the updated E-Series APUs feature DDR3 1333 support for enhanced memory bandwidth and faster performance and video playback, HDMI 1.4a connections allow for viewing 3D pictures and home video on 3D-enabled TVs and displays.

Products from PC manufacturers based on these new APUs can be identified by the VISION Technology from AMD or HD Internet stickers.
