"AMD plans to add two chips and "Turbo Core" acceleration technology to its successful line of E-Series APUs (accelerated processing units) in the third quarter, says the Xbitlabs website. Meanwhile, shipments of high-end, "Bulldozer"-based FX-Series chips will start in June, and mid-range "Llano"-based A-Series devices in July, according to writer Anton Shilov.

"AMD announced updated x86 microarchitectures code-named "Bobcat" and "Bulldozer" last fall, promising that chips based on them would be released during 2011. As we review later in this story, Bulldozer is aimed at servers and other high-end devices, whereas Bobcat is intended for portable devices and other relatively low-power devices."
