AMD has updated its Fusion range of APUs and is promising enhanced HD graphics along with other performance increases.

"With these new APUs, we're bringing premium features to entry-level products that let users get a richer computing experience," says Chris Chloran, AMD's Client Division Vice President and General Manager.

This update applies mainly to C-series and E-series processors. The C-series chips are used mainly in netbooks and notebooks. The E-Series APUs are used in All-in-One PCs.

AMD also said that these new chips are compatible with DisplayPort++ for HDMI or DisplayPort capable monitors or TVs.

AMD claims that the C-series is now capable of a standby battery life of 12 hours which it says is a four hour increase over its previous platforms. The E-Series APUs on the other hand supposedly get up to 10.5 hours of standby battery life and and feature support for DDR3 1333MHz RAM. HDMI 1.4a for 3D video and images on compatible 3D screens is also offered.
