    The new Jaguar cores inside AMD's latest APU are making waves. That's because they're found in both the new Xbox One console and the PlayStation 4.

    Technically, a very interesting chip, but platform limitations put the kybosh on any real appeal.

    The last few months have left me with a rather positive feeling towards AMD. Can this continue with the upgraded AMD FX-4300?

    The original FX-6200 impressed us recently with its combination of bargain price, impressive multi-threading performance and serious overclocking chops too. Can the FX-6300 repeat the same trick?

    AMD have updated the Piledriver specification to offer some more bang for your buck. Can it go toe-to-toe with Intel this time round?

    Take a CPU. Cram in a graphics core. What d'ya got? If you're AMD, it's a Fusion processor.

    More features in less space. Is AMD's new Trinity fusion chip for thin-and-light laptops an Intel Ultrabook killer?

    AMD A8-3870K Black Edition APU review

    8  

    While its flagship FX processors are failing to shine it does seem a little on unfair on AMD that at the other end of the market it has a chip which really ought be cleaning up. Its Llano Fusion APUs, which combine a multi-core CPU and a Radeon graphics part on one die, are actually rather good.

    AMD FX 6100 Black Edition review

    7  

    We'll put a hold recommendation the 6100. At stock clocks and with the final module hidden, it's not terribly exciting. However, if it turns out that most of all 6100s will happily run with the final module enabled, it might just be worth a roll of the dice. If that happens, we'll be more than happy to upgrade the 6100's status to buy.

    In our testing, the 4100 didn't deliver significantly better overclocking headroom than the full eight-core Bully. The best that can be said about this dual-module Bulldozer, then, is that it's not far behind its triple and quad-module brethren in games. If only they weren't all off the pace.

    We've waited a long time for AMD to release a brand new processor architecture, but finally the AMD FX series of CPUs has arrived.

    AMD A8-3850 Fusion APU review

    Last month saw the launch of the Llano motherboards from AMD, and if that isn't enough alliteration for you we've now got the release of the desktop Llano APU code-named Lynx. The AMD A8-3850 Fusion APU is the current top-end desktop Llano chip, and is a bit of a doozy.

    What kind of processor performance can you get for this cheap a price?

    AMD Athlon II X4 645 review

    8  

    A quad-core chip on the cheap is a compelling concept. The new 3.1GHz AMD Athlon II X4 645 is certainly a quad-core chip, but is it cheap enough at £95?

    By now, we were hoping to able to get our hands on AMD's new Bulldozer archtecture processors, but there's still no sign of them, so instead we back with the familiar Phenom II theme. Give it up for the new AMD Phenom II X4 970 Black Edition.

    AMD's six-core Thuban processor has been a TechRadar favourite since launch back in April. But with just two Phenom II X6 models on offer, it wasn't exactly the widest range of chips.
