AMD refreshes C- and E- Fusion APUs

AMD says today is the day it has refreshed its C- and E- series Fusion APUs for notebooks, all in ones and super-charged desktops.

As with Fusion in general, AMD boasts of strong HD capabilities, lasting resting battery life for mobile platforms and improved memory. They will be available from a range of manufacturers today. There’s DirectX 11 support, of course, an AMD staple. 

The E-Series refresh has DDR3 1333 support which bosts memory bandwidth and increases performance, as well as HDMI 1.4a connections meaning the few of the 3D inclined will be able to view it on enabled displays. 

Sunnyvale’s chip maker is particularly keen to tell the world about its decent battery performance for mobile form factors. This is where the battle is, and everyone knows it – with all the major players keen to match and beat each other’s performance. It says with the C- and E-Series APUs, it can deliver 12 and 10.5 hours of resting battery life respectively. 

Which we guess counts as all day battery life as long as you’re doing nothing with your machine all day.

It claims to have shipped over 12 million APUs in total and sold over five million of the C- and E- Series in just the second quarter of this year.
