AMD reveals its full 7th Generation A-Series Processor lineup at Computex 2016


AMD announced its full 7th Generation AMD A-Series Processor lineup, designed to help provide powerful productivity and entertainment performance with maximum mobility for consumers.

Previously codenamed “Bristol Ridge” and “Stoney Ridge,” the 7th Generation AMD FX, A-Series, and E-Series Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) show major improvements in performance compared to the previous generation, including double-digit gains in gaming, video rendering, and file compression performance.
AMD Advanced Power Management (APM) technology boosts performance to accomplish computing tasks with superior power efficiency for on-the-go capabilities.

Also, the new APUs allow users to enjoy the latest multimedia experiences in up-to Ultra HD 4K video resolution, with AMD FreeSync Technology support for fluid, artifact-free eSports-style gaming performance.

The 7th Generation AMD A-Series Processors enable a premium Microsoft Windows 10 experience and are primed to support the Microsoft Windows 10 Anniversary Update, expected later this year.

The full line of 7th Gen AMD A-Series processors feature mobile-optimized “Excavator” x86 CPU cores for high-speed computing, plus built-in Radeon graphics – with some models offering up to Radeon R7 graphics – for smooth eSports gaming and enhanced HD streaming capabilities.

The “Bristol Ridge” lineup consists of 35- and 15-watt versions of AMD FX, A12, and A10 processors, while “Stoney Ridge” processors include 15-watt A9, A6 and E2 configurations.

Its improved energy efficiency also allows the 7th Generation AMD FX™ 9800P processor to consume up to 12% less power in productivity workloads compared to the previous generation AMD FX-8800P APU.
