AMD Project Amur and Nolan Details Leaked – Would be the first 20nm APUs
Amur and Nolan both will be targeted towards Android-specific applications. For now we don’t know much about both candies so in this article we will just scratch the surface. First, come to the AMD Nolan which is the replacement of Beema and there are lots of chances that it would be based on 20nm process. Unlike Project Nolan, which is x86, AMD Amur will support on ARM based heterogeneous system architecture. It will be designed upon the Cortex A57 and will supposedly ship in third quarter of 2015. The Amur will entertain the Android and Linux and on the other hand, Nolan will support Android and Windows.
AMD Amur would feature 4 Core and from Graphics GCN 2.0 will do the job. Nolan is based on the Puma+ architecture and will be virtually identical to its ARM counterpart, apart from the fact that it is x86 and not ARM. That’s all folks
