In The News From around the web

AMD’s Kaveri APUs would feature the latest core architecture along with enhanced GCN graphics on a single die package.
This means that higher frequency DDR3 memory just might come in handy with Kaveri APUs to unleash the full potential of the graphics core.
The 760M and 765M both use 768 CUDA cores, but the 765M is clocked almost 200MHz faster.
The RAM and core are connected via a 256-bit interface.

Nvidia announces five new Geforce 700M GPUs

It is not clear how GT 740M ends up clocked higher than the GT 745M but it might have something to do with the maximum Boost.
All five new GPUs will feature Nvidia GPU Boost 2.0, Optimus and Nvidia Geforce Experience technologies.

AMD Q3 2012 Earnings: $157M Loss; 15% of Workforce To Be Cut

by Ryan Smith |

Unfortunately as we’ve seen time and time again with AMD, while their Graphics division can consistently turn a small profit, at only 1/3rd the revenue of their Computing Solutions division it’s not nearly large enough to offset the losses AMD has run there.
In Q3 of 2011 Llano was the biggest factor in AMD turning a profit, but a year later those chips have been superseded by AMD’s new Trinity APU.
