New AMD A-Series APUs win 2012 Best Choice of COMPUTEX TAIPEI award

AMD's second-gen APUs win the 2012 Best Choice of COMPUTEX TAIPEI award for second year.

AMD's new APUs are pretty awesome. They combine great graphics with pretty good compute performance into a single chip. They are ideal for laptops, desktops, and embedded solutions. Today's award announcement, which brings them to their second consecutive win, is given by Taipei Computer Association after being judged by a panel of esteemed government officials, academics, research analysts, editors-in-chief of key media outlets and industry experts.

"We are honored to receive this prestigious award from the Taipei Computer Association for the second consecutive year," said Chris Cloran, corporate vice president, AMD Client Products. "The overwhelming market reception and industry accolades for the AMD A-Series APUs demonstrate that AMD is uniquely meeting the needs of our customers and a new generation of PC buyers."

 

According to the press release:

 

The second generation AMD A-Series APU combines the company's latest multi-core x86 CPU core architecture and award-winning AMD Radeon™ HD 7000 Series graphics to provide an increase in performance of up to 29 percent on productivity applications (as compared with the first generation AMD A-Series APUs), an increase of graphics performance up to 56 percent, and deliver up to 12 hours of battery life. Its unique features enable improvements in the areas that matter most to consumers today, including entertainment, gaming and mobility, through a growing ecosystem of APU-accelerated applications.

 

I haven't personally tested one yet, but I have seen some reviews elsewhere that tend to agree with what AMD is claiming. For those attending Computex, AMD and other award recipients' products will be displayed at the Best Choice Award Pavilion by Taipei Computer Association at the upcoming 2012 Computex exhibition. In addition, AMD's product showcase will be located at Booth #L0607 in the TWTC Nangang exhibition hall.
