Message Text: AMD launched at CES the AMD Radeon HD 8000M Series of mobile graphics processing units (GPUs) set to deliver discrete graphics performance to a variety of notebook designs, including the incredibly portable ultrathin form factor.

The AMD Radeon HD 8000M Series are the first notebook GPUs to be offered with the AMD Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture, which helps stretching battery life through AMD Enduro Technology. Designs are currently shipping with ASUS and Samsung, with Lenovo.

Additionally, AMD announced the availability of AMD Radeon HD 8000 Series desktop graphics, available only through AMD's OEMs. The AMD Radeon HD 8000 Series features GCN Architecture with support for DirectX 11.1 for optimal acceleration of Windows 8 platforms, AMD App Acceleration to enhance GPU performance, and features intelligent power management technology such as AMD PowerTune with boost.



The AMD Radeon HD 8800M, HD 8700M, HD 8600M and HD 8500M GPUs are graphics powerhouses. The AMD Radeon HD 8000M Series features AMD Enduro Technology, a power-saving solution that scales GPU usage and power based on graphics demand. AMD is offering a redesigned user interface with full user profile control that detects the power source and GPU, allowing applications to scale seamlessly. Additionally, the new user interface has default settings ideal for a majority of users, with expert mode control options for enthusiasts and power users.
