This APU is based on AMD’s new Kaveri architecture bringing the CPU and the GPU even closer together as the two “segments” now really have been merged into the die. Kaveri will aim at several segments in the processor business like notebooks, desktops, embedded and even server solutions. Armed bit a whopping 2.41 Billion transistors and based on a 28nm fabrication process, today we look at the mainstream Kaveri APU, the AMD A8-7600.
