AMD announces two new FX laptop processors

After having offered its high-performance FX processors exclusively for high-end and gaming desktops for years, AMD has revealed in a recent announcement that it is coming up with its first FX laptop processors --- the 35-watt FX-7600P, and the 19-watt AMD FX-7500.

The two chips were announced by AMD at the Computex show in Taiwan on Wednesday. The company said that both the new FX laptop processors will be its flagship offerings; and also asserted that the new chips will be among its fastest laptop chips thus far.

According to the details shared by AMD, the two new FX laptop chips will be based on the company's latest Kaveri microarchitecture; and will boast integrated graphics cores based on the Radeon graphics architecture.

Noting that the new FX laptop processors announced by AMD underscore an attempt by the company to position itself against rival Intel's fastest Core i7 laptop processors, Kevin Lensing - AMD's senior director for mobility products - said that the new FX chips will chiefly be targeted at premium laptops.

With AMD hopeful that the FX branding of its new laptop processors will see the same noteworthy acceptance levels as the company's FX processors for desktops, Lensing said that the fastest FX chips deliver a total of 818 gigaflops of processing power.

Describing the FX chips' processing power as "console-like," Lensing said that AMD's top-line FX laptop chip is 58 percent and 52 percent faster respectively on graphics and overall system performance as compared to Intel's Core i7-4500U processor.
