AMD to launch its Kaveri APU to desktops in February 2014

Thanks to a leaked slide, we know when to hopefully expect AMD's upcoming, next-generation APU, codenamed "Kaveri." Kaveri will be officially announced on December 5, but it will see a proper launch in February 2014.

Between its announcement and its launch, we should expect the chipmaker to ship Kaveri APUs to its OEM vendors before 2013 is a wrap. The new Kaveri APUs will be slotted into the new socket FM+ package, which will support AMD's new A88X chipset. Kaveri will feature CPU cores based on the "Steamroller" architecture, which provides an approximate 10% increase in performance over the "Piledriver" architecture.

The new Kaveri-based APUs will feature a Graphics CoreNext-based GPU strapped on, TrueAudio technology, support for even faster DDR3 memory, and PCI-Express 3.0.
