The year hasn’t entirely ended yet, but AMD is getting a head start on getting the word out about what’s in store for 2014. There is limited information about specifications, but there is a general outline of what to expect from the processors.
The same branding still exists, but the Richland, Kabini and Temash processors are being replaced with versions known as Kaveri, Beema and Mullins. It appears that the changes come from the new chips being more power efficient, possibly to catch up in the mobile computing department. Something that AMD hasn’t exactly been keeping up with.
New security features are also making an appearance on the platform, with the Trusted Execution Domain. This new feature splits the system into normal and secure domains. What that means is still unknown, although more details are expected at CES next year.
