AMD has just announced its new G-series platform, the world’s first combination of a lower-power CPU, coupled with an advanced GPU that is integrated into a single embedded Accelerated Processing Unit. The G-series has the core focus of producing more for less power.
These APUs carry thermal design power ratings between 5.5 and 6.4 watts, leading to a 39% power savings compared to previous versions.
The G-series APU ships in a 361mm2 package that allows compact use, perfect for modern netbooks and notebooks. AMD claims that the new G-series APUs offer up to three times the performance per watt compared to previous generations.
