Chipmaker Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NYSE:AMD) has confirmed that its next generation Kaveri processor will be publicly available in the first quarter of next year. The family of Kaveri accelerated processing units (APUs) will combine two to four 28nm CPU cores, based on the Steamroller architecture, with a Graphics Core Next GPU. It will be the chipmaker’s first processor to support its heterogeneous Unified Memory Architecture, which allows both the CPU and GPU to share memory space. Sharing memory space will make it easier for processing tasks to be shared between the CPU and the GPU and play to each processor’s strengths.

Jon Peddie Research (JPR), the industry’s research and consulting firm for graphics and multimedia, announced estimated graphics chip shipments and suppliers’ market share for 2013 2Q. While the news was disappointing year-to-year, the news was encouraging quarter-to-quarter. Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NYSE:AMD) overall unit shipments increased 10.9%, quarter-to-quarter, Intel increased 6.2%, and Nvidia decreased by 8%. The overall PC market declined 2.5% quarter-to-quarter while the graphics market increased 4.6%.
