This is also the first "Gate First" HKMG product to volume ship in the semiconductor industry. The A-Series combines a quad core x86 CPU and a DirectX11 GPU on the same die, and is 500 Gflops capable. This offers, for the first time ever, supercomputer performance in a notebook form factor that will run on a battery all day.
The A-Series has garnered numerous industry accolades and awards including the CES 2011 Design & Engineering Innovations Award and the 2011 Best Choice of Computex Taipei Award.
