AMD Brazos successor gets USB 3.0

Written by Fuad Abazovic



Kabini 28nm that is


Brazos 2.0 is supposed to last until some point in 2013 when AMD plans to reveal its 28nm based Kabini processors in dual- and quad-core variants, something to replace Brazos cores, so it is a long overdue part.

One of the biggest disadvantages of Brazos was lack of USB 3.0 and on some small systems such as Sapphire HD2 Mini PC, it was not that easy to integrate the USB 3.0 external controller leaving the system without increasingly important USB 3.0 support.

Brazos 2.0 with A68 chipset solved this problem as it brings two USB 3.0 and 8 USB 2.0 ports and it looks that Kabini 28nm successor chipset, codenamed Yangtze will continue the tradition.

Yangtze FCH has two SATA 6Gb/s ports, two USB 3.0 ports and an undisclosed number or USB 2.0 ports, SD/SDIO 3.0 support, something that some tablets or convertible designs might want to use as well as xHCI 1.0. There are probably some other features that AMD doesn’t want to reveal at this time, as Kabini is expected in mid-2013 at earliest.

2013 will be a year of many changes at AMD, but the rest of 2012 will be market in waiting for some delayed product including Vishara FX series CPUs and Trinity A series APUs in desktop.
