AMD's 3rd Generation APU To Have 1 TFLOPS of Compute Performance
AMD just launched its 2nd-Generation AMD A-Series Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) called Trinity last month, but that hasn't stopped AMD from talking about Kaveri. Kaveri will be the companies 3rd-Generation APU that is expected to be released in 2013. At the AMD Fusion Developer Summit, AMD stated that the Kaveri APU will have at least 1 TFLOPS of total compute performance. The Trinity APU that was just released is currently rated at 726 GFLOPS. This is around a 38% performance improvement, which shows the heterogeneous architecture AMD has adopted is headed in the right direction. Kaveri will be the first APU with true shared, unified address space between the CPU and GPU.
