Advanced Micro Devices on Wednesday launched a new desktop APU code named Richland which combines CPU and GPU performance in a single package that the chip maker said at the Computex show in Taiwan will hands-down beat rival Intel's offerings in the mainstream market.

Richland is the next stage in AMD's A-Series APU lineup, which kicked off with Llano-class chips in 2011 and was followed up with Trinity last year. The chip maker said its Richland series boosts its 3DMark Fire Strike benchmarking score by 21 percent from the Trinity generation and has scored double-digit performance increases in other key benchmarking tests as compared with the preceding generation.

AMD's Richland, utilizing the chip maker's Radeon 8000 series graphics, provides 779 GFLOPs of GPU compute performance to supplement a quad-core x86-based central processor capable of up to 4.4GHz clock speeds out of the box.
