"Carrizo" will be an x86 APU built using 28-nanometer architecture and will, according to AMD, be optimized for both power and area efficiency. It is expected to make an appearance inside notebooks and all-in-one PCs towards mid-year, but AMD has unveiled some details about the new chip at International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC).

  • 29 percent more transistors in nearly the same die size as its predecessor, the "Kaveri"
  • New "Excavator" x86 cores provide an uplift in instructions-per-clock at 40 percent less power
  • New Radeon GPU cores with dedicated power supply
  • Dedicated, on-chip H.265 video decode
  • Double digit percentage increases in both performance and battery life
  • Integrated Southbridge for the first time on an AMD high-performance APU
