Kaveri 2013 Fusion supports DDR3 2133

Written by Fuad Abazovic



28nm Quad-core Steamroller


AMD plans to replace Trinity at some point in 2013. Trinity is a part of the Virgo platform and features up to four Piledriver CPU cores, supports AMD Turbo Core 3.0, DirectX 11 GPU, socket FM2 as well as DDR3 1866.

The third generation Fusion, or the third generation APU, has up to four Steamroller CPU cores, new DirectX 11 GPU, FS2L socket and DDR3 2133 support. This is the highest DDR3 spec we’ve seen to date and even DDR3 1866 for Vishera and Trinity sounded quite nice. 

The codename that AMD wants to talk about is wrapped around Kaveri APU. AMD has revealed in its financial roadmap update that Kaveri APU is a 28nm mainstream part, while Kabini essential level APUs replaces Bobcat-based Brazos 2.0 and they both should be manufactured by GlobalFoundries.

The launch is scheduled for 2013, we have nothing better than that at this time.
