When it comes to gaming most of the users prefer to use AMD processors. The reason is that they provide better efficiency and high end performance. With all these advantages it still has a disadvantage. The gamers as well as general users are always worried about the battery life of the processor. For this AMD has come out with a solution with its new range of processors named “Carrizo”. They are mainly focused on lengthening the battery life of the laptops. AMD Corporate Fellow, Sam Naffziger stated that they have designed the new processor in such a way that it will deliver per watt gain for a typical AMD APU.
Carrizo promises upto 40% gain of energy than its predecessor class. While disclosing the product details at the International Solid State Circuits Conference, it is said to be utilizing x86 based central processing core code named Excavator and next generation Radeon graphics in a System on a chip design. The new Processor characterizes the next level in AMD’s Heterogeneous System Architecture organising Unified Memory Access that gives CPU and GPU the shared and the same memory of address space.
Carrizo range of processors succeeds ‘Kaveri’ range of processors which was introduced last year. The AMD assures that the new range of chips will be made available commercially to its clients very soon. Just like ‘Kaveri’, Carrizo is a 28 nanometer chip. But with this same size, it managed to include 29% more transistors than its previous version. The new Carrizo managed to pack 3.1 billion transistors, still enjoys the energy efficiency than the ‘Kaveri’ version. It allows for the integration of the system controller into Single chip design. With all these the new processor manages to save upto 40% of energy than its older version, ‘Kaveri’.
The other specifications includes the H.265 Video decode along with high end performance and better life over Kaveri line of products. The upcoming Chipset forwards for the 25*20 energy efficiency objective by including a heap of new features that would trigger the performance of the system. AMD said that the development of HSA has ultimate resulted in the boosted per watt performance. It would be the first processor that would perform energy adaptive operations in both GPU and CPU portions of the system. AMD’s Carrizo involves the application of patented silicon speed capability sensors and also sensors of voltage in addition to old power and temperature sensors. With its new chipset AMD really aimed on the next generation laptops that would require energy efficiency and better performace.
