2 different GPU code names for Kaveri APUs (Spectre & Spooky)

Quote:
Following the new mobile APUs is the most anticipated “Kaveri” APU, the first HSA-enabled APU from AMD. There are two GPU code names, “Spectre” and “Spooky“, the differences between the two graphics engines are not yet known, but all should based-off the GCN architecture. The code names of the graphics engines are based off the Lockheed AC-130H “Spectre” and Lockheed AC-130U “Spooky” ground-attack aircraft.

The “Kaveri” family of APUs has a total of 18 variants for the graphics engines with different numbers of compute units and frequencies. There will be two variants for workstation market, to replace the current Trinity-based FirePro A300/A320 series workstation APUs with the possible addition of ECC memory support (as supported by both the “Steamroller” CPU cores and GCN-based graphics engine), and there will be another two variants for embedded markets to replace the current R-series embedded APUs.


The power envelopes for “Kaveri” parts are the same as the current generation: 17W/25W/35W for mobile and embedded applications, and 65/100W for desktops and workstations. While there will still be a BGA offerings for the mobile variants, the relationship between the Lite and SL notations has yet to be revealed. Although judging by the TDP numbers (from largest to lowest) in general, it would seem that the sequence would be Normal → Lite → SL.

AMD's timetable mentioned it will be be released in 2013 Q4. I don't think they can afford to miss the shopping season that takes place after Black Friday.

Looks like 4 core only with ~7750 graphics performance (probably slightly lower because of memory bandwidth restrictions). CPU side should be slightly faster then FX-4350 or something like that considering higher clocks and steamroller but no l3 cache etc. Still nice just not jaw breaking.

Ofc we will have to see how it actually performs with hUMA and in HSA enabled applications... that could be big part of the deal.

Dude, we all know A10-5800k performs on par with FX4300. +20-30% of SR improvements it's going to be WAY beyond a 4350

Let's see how much an extra decoder and the other stuff affects the performance.

Intel won't have anything new until 2015, so it's just going to be Kaveri/Steamroller vs Haswell. Interesting...
