Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) has updated its accelerated processing units (APUs) for ultrathin and value notebooks, netbooks, all-in-ones and desktop PCs. The company's Fusion C- and E-series now feature performance boosts with enhanced memory and DisplayPort ++ for connecting to any HDMI or DisplayPort-enabled monitor or TV, noted AMD.

"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, VP 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."

The Fusion C- and E-series now feature performance boosts with enhanced memory and DisplayPort ++ for connecting to any HDMI or DisplayPort-enabled monitor or TV.

The 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 11-capable discrete-level graphics and a parallel processing engine, stated AMD. Additionally, the E-Series APUs feature DDR3 1333 support for enhanced memory bandwidth and faster performance and video playback. It also allows HDMI 1.4a connections for viewing 3D pictures and home video on 3D-enabled TVs and displays, the company stated.

For mobile users, the 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. The improvement is almost a four-hour increase over previous platforms, added AMD. 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.
