AMD Kabini APU Support Comes To Coreboot
As of today there's initial support in Coreboot for handling AMD Kabini APUs.
Through a series of commits today to Coreboot, initial support for AMD Kabini APUs is present, courtesy of Advanced Micro Devices and Sage Electronics Engineering. AMD Kabini is the low-power APU targeting sub-notebook/netbook/ultra-thin devices and based upon AMD's Jaguar micro-architecture.
Jaguar, also known as AMD Family 16h, features new low-power states, new CPU instruction set extensions (SSE 4.2, AES, AVX, BMI, etc), +10% frequency boosts, 128-bit FPU data-path width, enhanced cache prefetchers, and numerous other improvements over existing Bobcat APUs.
The Coreboot support today for AMD's Kabini comes in the form of the AGESA wrapper, the Northbridge wrapper, and modified Hudson Southbridge wrapper.
