Netbooks may not be the hot item they once were, but they actually more capable than ever, partly thanks to AMD's C- and E-Series APUs. AMD updated its offering of these chips with greater efficiency, which means longer battery life than before.
The E-series now has up to 10.5 hours of resting battery life, and the C-Series pushes it to 12 hours.
Additionally, the updated E-Series APUs feature:
* DDR3 1333 support for enhanced memory bandwidth and faster performance and video playback.
* HDMI 1.4a connections allow for viewing 3D pictures and home video on 3D- enabled TVs and displays.
Products from leading PC manufacturers based on these new APUs are available starting today and can be identified by the VISION Technology from AMD or HD Internet stickers.
AMD has shipped more than 12 million APUs, and sold more than five million of the popular C- and E-Series APUs in Q2 2011 alone.
