AMD have announced their new mobile roadmap and have changed their naming scheme drastically for these new processors.  The first of their ARM based processors will be called Hierofalcon and feature up to eight Cortex A57 processors capable of hitting 2GHz with a pair of 64-bit ECC DDR3 or DDR4 memory channels.  It will be a true SoC and feature both network and PCIe controllers as well as support for ARM's TrustZone.  Bald Eagle will have Steamroller cores and will be low TDP processors with a maximum of 35W and allow you to configure the maximum TDP to even lower levels if you so wish.  The final announcement dealt with the new GCN-based embedded series of GPUs called Adelaar which arrive in three different packages, a multi-chip module, a mobile PCIe module and a discrete GPU.  You can glean a bit more about these new families at DigiTimes.

"AMD has disclosed its roadmap for the embedded computing market, as it becomes the first company to offer both ARM and x86 processor solutions for low-power and high-performance embedded compute designs. The new lineup includes two x86 accelerated processing units (APUs) and CPUs, a high-performance ARM system-on-chip (SoC) and a new family of discrete AMD Embedded Radeon graphics processing units (GPUs) expected to launch in 2014."

To me an easier to understand naming scheme would be

Radeon Gen1 10 - 100 100 being the dual gpu card. They would never have to change the naming scheme again because now when you come out with the next gen card just name it Gen2.

By Gen3 everyone should be used to the naming scheme and there would never have to be another naming scheme again because by the time they reach gen100, I will be dead.

Hopefully this move that AMD is making with ARM, they could put out a solid APU. I've herd that if the APU is not balanced right there could be a bottle neck, between the CPU and GPU. Still I would like to see the speeds of the "Single Core" in the APU advance, less of a bottle neck I would think.
This is for the desktop version of APU I'm talking about.
