When it comes to gaming, AMD processors are often recommended. The only reason is that they were the first who came up with APU processors. The APU(Accelerated Processing Unit) processor is the combination of CPU and GPU processors in one chip. AMD has aimed to build GPU in such a way that it balances the load with higher performance and lower power consumption. The advantage of using the APU structured architecture is that the virtual memory is shared with CPU and GPU which helps to access the pageable system memory directly from GPU when it is free and share the tasks to reduces the task queue and responds quickly.

AMD Richland(also known as A series processors) APUs support HSA(Heterogeneous System Architecture), which helps in file paging and used as System-in-chip devices and mostly used in tablets and smartphones. Richland also does parallel and serial computing in one processor. With Richland, AMD has improved the processor and added Piledriver 4 cores which has more than 4.1 Ghz. The GPU is supported by latest Radeon HD 8000 Series graphic chipset. The best feature of this processor is that it allows the internal software to adjust the CPU and GPU clock speed to maximize and minimize the performance according to the rules of thermal design power of APU.

AMD 5 GHz FX-9590 and 4.7 GHz FX-9370 are the is most powerful processor available for your system right now. FX series processors are aimed for power gamers which helps to play high-end games without a lag and can also be used by developers who use graphics software on regular basis. These 5GHz processor will soon be powering Microsoft Xbox and Sony Playstation. FX series processor uses Richland’s Piledriver chipset architecture and includes 8 core CPUs with 8MB L3 cache to deliver new levels of gaming and multimedia performance for desktop enthusiasts. Apart from that, these processors feature AMD Turbo Core 3.0 technology which helps to dynamically optimize performance across CPU cores and enable maximum computing for the most intensive workloads.

Jaguar architecture modelled Kabini and Temash is targeted for low-power, laptops, netbook, ultra-thin and small form factor markets and the Temash APU is aimed at the tablet, ultra-low power and small form factor markets. Kabini and Temash are designed for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) on a budget as they are AMDs first quad-core processors on x86 platform.
