AMD Jaguar Architecture Has Four Independent Cores

AMD unveiled its next-generation Jaguar low-power CPU micro-architecture for APUs in the 5W-25W TDP range, targeting everything from tablets to entry-level notebooks and nettops. This new core will replace the Bobcat and will take on Intel's Atom.

At the ISSC 2013 AMD announced a few killer features of "Jaguar”. To begin with, APUs with CPU cores based on this micro-architecture will be built using TSMC's 28-nanometer HKMG process. Jaguar allows for up to four x86-64 cores. The four cores, unlike Bulldozer modules, are completely independent, and only share a 2 MB L2 cache.

Jaguar also includes ISA instruction sets found on mainstream CPUs, such as AVX, SIMD instruction sets (e.g. SSE3, SSE4.1, SSE4.2, and SSE4A), all of which are quite widely adopted by modern media applications and AES-NI, which accelerates AES data encryption.

AMD claims to have improved its power-gating technology that completely cuts power to inactive cores, helping to conserve battery life.

AMD Turbo Dock Promises Perfect Balance for Windows 8 Hybrids

AMD today announced a new innovation for hybrid PCs to enable more performance when the system is docked and to lower power consumption when in tablet mode automatically.

AMD Turbo Dock technology is expected to appear this year on equipped hybrid systems built around the SoC codenamed "Temash" with AMD Radeon HD graphics.

Other features available from AMD-based tablets and hybrids include:

  • Access to the AMD AppZone
  • AMD Start Now technology
  • AMD Radeon HD graphics on the APU, with support for full HD 1080p resolution, HDMI output for external displays and Microsoft DirectX 11 capability;
  • Windows 8 and Windows 7 support with backward compatibility for all Windows applications.

The AMD Turbo Dock technology will be revealed at next week's Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona, Spain.
