Message Text: The new Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) that AMD had in the pipeline have been the talk of the web for a while today the company has officially launched the new A-Series models.

AMD's updated its A-Series line-up of desktop and notebook APUs, come in dual/quad-core models, speed and performance improvements. In addition, AMD Steady Video update make this feature more compelling. For desktop users, AMD extends its overclocking pedigree to the APU; for the first time users can tune both x86 and graphics settings in a single processor for boosted performance.

The updated AMD A-Series APUs combine up to four x86 CPU cores with up to 400 Radeon cores, delivering DirectX 11-capable, discrete-level graphics and dedicated HD video processing on a single chip. The APUs also offer AMD Dual Graphics for an up to 144 percent visual performance boost when a select APU is paired with a select AMD Radeon HD 6500 Series graphics card.

The AMD A-Series family of APUs also features AMD Steady Video, designed to stabilize videos during playback - making unsteady, jumpy content look steady and smooth. Users may turn on this technology via the AMD Catalyst Control Center or the VISION Engine Control Center application. AMD Steady Video will work with content that can run on Adobe Flash Player 10.2 (and later versions) or on any player which has been programmed to use Microsoft's DXVA (DirectX Video Acceleration) API. On select systems using AMD A-Series APUs, Internet Explorer 9 will include an AMD Steady Video plugin.

All AMD A-Series processors are powered by AMD VISION Engine Software, a suite of software that provides end-users with regular updates designed to improve system performance and stability, and can add new software enhancements.
