AMD has launched a bunch of new A Pro series processors under "Godavari PRO" and "Carrizo PRO" codenames. These accelerated processing units pack desktop and mobile processor range and come with business class quality assurance such as long battery life and extended warranty support.
Right now Intel offers Xeon E3-1200 and Xeon D family as server class products. In coming months this is going to change as first Xeon D system-on-chips are going to make their debut, namely Xeon D 1521 and Xeon D 1541. Both of these will be launched in the November 2 2015 and these new chips will offers higher clock speeds and support for DDR3 memory.
AMD A-Pro series processors are meant for a business laptops and we recently spotted it in the maintenance manual of the HP 14 laptop. The manual also spilled the AMD A-Pro 3440B specifications which are as follows:
* 2.2 GHz clock speed integrated graphics
* AMD Radeon HD 8830
* 25 watt TDP
AMD is all set to launch its next APUs that currently have been codenamed Carrizo. All the current Kabini and Beema chips will be swapped with the Carrizo -L accelerated processing units. We have been told that Carrizo-L will be released in December 2014 while the Carrizo mobile APU will be made available to the manufacture in March 2015.
This will put the AMD Carrizo-L processors toe to toe with the entry level Intel’s Celeron and Pentium processors.
AMD is all set to launch two new processors based on the AM1 socket platform. Right now there are four dual and quad core APUs for the socket but they are all based on the Kabini architecture that feature cores, GPU, memory controller and fusion controller hub on the same chipset.
The new Intel Broadwell processors are coming this September and we now have the details of three CPUs that will be the first to make their debut in to the market. These are Core X 5Y10, 5Y70 and 5Y10a and it is confirmed by VR-zone’s Chinese site that confirms the Y-series models. They say that the Y models will be released first.
Intel is going to retire Atom S1200 and Z3700 series sooner than expected. In fact we have the concrete date for each series. The Atom Z3740, Z3740D, Z3770 and Z3770D will be discontinued after April 10 2015. The last shipment for the S1260, S1240 and S1220 will be done on October 9 2015.
Intel has made it official that it plans to shit more than 40 million tablet parts this year, so it is not very shocking that the company is planning to churn out even more tablet parts that target the low segment market. According to the leaked OEM roadmap published by padnews.cn, Intel will be expanding its Bay Trail-T lineup for both high and low end tablets by launching three new CPUs, namely Z3775, Z3775E, and Z3775D.
