Where are the Kaveri Laptops??

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I have been in search for a new Laptop. I had wanted this to lean towards the thin & powerful gaming laptop (less battery life, not ultra-portable), like the ASUS G550JK or the Lenovo Y50-70, both of which (especially the Lenovo) are GREAT! However I had wanted to wait for the upcoming Kaveri laptops, which are nowhere to be found! Granted, even with the top Kaveri mobile APU (FX-7600P (why the FX naming I do not know)) it will not be as powerful as with a discreet GPU, but I would rather see this option too. I have yet to see one such laptop. Nothing. No mass market entrance. Google search for kaveri laptops give results back from July. What the hell is going on? I know I must be missing something.

Where are the high end Kaveri-based laptops?

On a side note: Would you recommend waiting for Broadwell? What else is there on the horizon (new nvidia graphics models maybe? Powerful kaveri chips, at last?)

Just get a Nexus 7 2013. Nothing is going to come close to its power efficiency. 0.39 watts in reader mode. The display is priceless, too.

Nexus 7 in a Kaveri laptop thread, well done to you.

Dude go with the nexus 9! That k1 Denver core... Doing work!

My rule of thumb...laptops will always be disappointing... Seems the tech is always at least a year behind...

Probably about as disappointing as every CPU release since 2011.

I've been on that boat before. Pro tip I learned the hard way: it takes so long for decent APU laptops to materialize that they're obsolete by the time they hit shelves.

I waited for a replacement for my cheap llano A8 laptop for ages, only to find that the decent replacements came out (The Asus U38N, Vizio linup) late, and were more expensive than Haswell laptops with a discrete GPU. On top of that, trinity's CPU ended up being SLOWER than my llano quad, and unlike llano, it was multiplier/voltage locked. So I got my hopes up for Kaveri... and realized all this waiting is pointless.

Trust me, a laptop with a Haswell dualie + GM107 GPU would serve you better... and you can buy them right now.

I have a A4-3300m which i overclocked to 3ghz. I also own a A10-5757m (richland apu) I understand your post completely. Cpu performance is higher on the Richland cpu, but only because it has 4 cores instead of the 2 my llano had. Graphics horsepower improved a good bit, but most games were limited by the cpu anyways.

I have also been looking for one of those FX Kaveri laptops, but haven't found one I could order yet. At this point in time might as well wait for excavator? I dunno I feel Amd has missed the ball with the mobile Kaveri's coming way to late.

I'll be rocking my sandy 2500k till it dies or some crazy advancement in cpus comes out... Thing can still handle any game I throw at it with ease.. And 4.5ghz no problem...

I think efficiency is quite a polarizing subject. It can only hold one crown.
Qualcomm reached peak efficiency in Nexus 7, imo. Future iterations such as tablet of Xperia Z 2 consumes 0.98 watts in reader mode. That indicates to me we have reached the ideal point and are once again displaced from efficiency as performance targets weigh in.
