With world-class graphics and compute technology on a single chip, the AMD A-Series APU is an effective and efficient solution for customers and enable industry-leading computing experiences, he added.

The AMD A-Series APU processor-in-a-box (PIBs) for the AMD A10-7850K and AMD A10-7700K, which started shipping in Q4 2013, are available starting today and AMD A8-7600 will be up for shipping in Q1 2014, the company said.
