SUNNYVALE, CA, Aug 22, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --

Today AMD (NYSE: AMD) updated its award-winning 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 updated APUs deliver:

--  Enhanced HD graphics capabilities;
--  Performance boosts with enhanced memory;
--  DisplayPort ++ for connecting to any HDMI or DisplayPort-enabled
    monitor or TV;
--  12 hours of resting battery life on a single charge for the mobile
    platform -- a nearly four hour increase over previous platforms(i).

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(R)11-capable discrete-level graphics and a parallel processing engine, as well as all-day battery life(ii).

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.

For mobile users, the new AMD Fusion C-Series and E-Series APUs deliver even longer battery life than before -- with up to 10.5 hours of resting battery life on the E-Series and 12 hours on the C-Series -- enabling users to work or play longer without searching for an outlet.

Products from leading PC manufacturers based on these new APUs are available starting today and can be identified by the VISION Technology from AMD or HD Internet stickers.

(i) In testing conducted by AMD performance labs the 2010 Ultrathin AMD V-105-based platform demonstrated battery life up to 499 minutes or 8.3 hours using Windows Idle as "resting" metric and up to 218 minutes or 3:38 hours as an "active" metric using 3DMark '06. The 2011 value segment platform reference design "Iguana" with the AMD C-60 APU-based netbook demonstrated "all-day" battery life up to 735 minutes or 12.25 hours using Windows Idle as "resting" metric and up to 267 minutes or 4:27 hours as an "active" metric using 3DMark '06. Battery life calculations are based on using a 6-cell Li-Ion 62.16Whr battery pack at 98% utilization. AMD defines "all-day" battery life as 8+ hours of continuous use as measured with the Windows Idle test. The 2010 Ultrathin platform consisted of an AMD V-Series V-105 Processor with ATI Radeon(TM) HD 4225 Graphics, 1Ghz, 2GB (2x1GB) DDR3-800 system memory, 1366x768 display resolution, Windows Vista Home, 64-bit, 62Whr Li-Ion battery. The 2011 AMD "Inagua" reference design consisted of an AMD Dual-Core C-60 APU with AMD Radeon(TM) HD 6290 Graphics, 1Ghz, 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3-1066 system memory, 1366x768 display resolution, Windows 7 Ultimate, 64-bit, 62Whr Li-Ion battery.
