AMD Kaveri Goes Mobile: New FX Chips Target Core i7 Laptops, Ultrathin Gaming

Interesting times ahead for fans of thin-yet-high-performance laptops. Last week at Computex, a day after Intel unveiled its Core M fanless processor for 2-in-1 devices, AMD announced the mobile version of its Kaveri A-Series APU chip.

Intel, however, has a fix: it has designed a 2-in-1 device without the need for a fan.
