The Puma+ cores to be featured inside the Beema APU would be updated over the current Kabini APU featuring better performance and high efficiency.

The only way we can make AMD's FX-8350 look like a better gaming value than Intel's Core i7-3770K (specifically in the games and at the settings we used to test) is if the rest of the system is free.

In The News From around the web

If you asked me right now what I recommend for 1440p and 4K gaming (with 60FPS being the target average FPS), then I would recommend NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1070, which is an amazing card performance/dollar wise.
Wrapping things up, AMD has impressed me with the results here with the Radeon RX 480s in CrossFire - with some of the best performance at $400-$480, and some damn good CrossFire scaling at 1440p and 4K.
The $399 price is obviously more attractive, but you'd need to be in the market for a new laptop as well (and again, it would need to a Razer laptop to get that $100 discount).

Rumor: Polaris Is the next AMD Radeon Core Architecture

by Sebastian Peak |
A report claims that Polaris will succeed GCN (Graphics Core Next) as the next AMD Radeon GPU core, which will power the 400-series graphics cards.
They further claim that the GTX 960 will have a 128-bit memory bus and reference cards will have a 2GB frame buffer (though naturally we can expect models with 4GB of memory after launch).
