AMD on 18th September 2013 launched two new additions to its 2013 A-Series and E-Series Mobile Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) lineup to keep up with today’s evolving PC market with dramatically increased performance and power efficiency, as well as a portfolio of unique user experiences, and superior gaming and graphics:
The three different categories announced today are:

- The 2013 AMD Mainstream APU (formerly codenamed “Kabini”) – the first and only quad-core x86 SoC solution for entry-level and small-form factor touch notebooks;
- New, low power versions of the 2013 AMD Elite Performance APU (formerly codenamed “Richland”) – offer the best graphics and compute in a performance APU for premium ultrathin notebooks.
These new APUs are designed to effectively balance the needs of a wide range of new and traditional mobile PC users and are available from the world’s top computer manufacturers, including products announced today from HP, Lenovo, Acer and Asus.
