AMD Showcasing Turbo Dock Tech Next Week at MWC 2013

By - Source: AMD | B 13 comments

AMD's Temash APU will sport Turbo Dock technology.

On Wednesday AMD said that it plans to showcase stand-alone "performance" tablets and Hybrid PCs next week during Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona, Spain. The company also plans to demonstrate its AMD Turbo Dock technology which will be equipped on hybrid systems based on the company's "Temash" SoCs.

According to AMD, Turbo Dock automatically cranks up the performance of an APU while a Hybrid PC is docked and used for complex tasks like content creation. Turbo Dock is also designed to lower power consumption when the device is in tablet mode, helping extend battery life.

"With our latest APUs, AMD aims to deliver a more complete, full-featured experience on tablet and hybrid PCs than has been available to date," said Steve Belt, vice president of AMD Ultra-low Power Products. "AMD Turbo Dock technology delivers on that promise by dynamically adjusting to what the user is doing to provide the optimal experience and battery life."

AMD's "Temash" 28-nm SoC is the company's latest ultra-low power mobility solution for Windows 8 tablets and Hybrid PCs that supposedly delivers five times the graphics performance of the competition's x86-based tablet solution. Temash will be showcased next week in dual-core and quad-core versions, AMD said.

In addition to AMD Turbo Dock, Temash-powered tablets and Hybrid PCs will include AMD Start Now technology that allows fast boot and resume from sleep times, and Radeon HD graphics with support for DirectX 11, Full HD 1080p resolution, HDMI output and external displays. Devices will also have access to the AMD AppZone that offers apps tuned for AMD's APU.

Mobile World Congress 2013 starts February 25 and concludes February 28, so stay tuned for more AMD coverage.

    Finally, AMD began regaining it's mind and started making something really worthwhile, instead of just pulling FeXal matter (geddit?) out of it's ass all the time.

    Ah, so this is why they wanted the interconnects so bad.

    Well played AMD, well played. If this is a hybrid XFire / multi socket array like in servers, but downplayed to tablet / notebook, it will be VERY interesting indeed.

    I am not a fan of the Atom powered tablets, and the "I" series tablets have too short of battery life for me, and the graphics suck on both. I was really hoping AMD would release something for the windows 8 tablet sooner, but I guess I can wait a little longer for devices to be released.

    Hmm, wait and see how bad the micro-stuttering is first.

    I like the dock idea but any APU out today Xf with the right gpu is still short on the performance I would want. If what they offer here is very high end setting on the right size screen, then they have my attention.

    I am still interested in a tablet/hybrid that would allow me to plug in a 7850/660 lvl gpu when I want to do a sit down gaming session.

    bought it at 2$
    that means he made 70 cents a share so far, what is that, close to 35-40% more money?

    they are getting some really large announcements soon, and i wouldnt doubt them shooting up 1-2$ before chistmas.
