Desktop Llano uses Socket FM1

Written by Fuad Abazovic

DirectX 11 support
Upcoming Lynx based Llano APU will use a new socket FM1. APU is the chip that has graphics and CPU and yet according to AMD deserves a new fancy nick abbrevaton. It's not, I repeat - it's not a character from Simpsons. We don’t know how different this new socket for desktop CPUs is, but we know it replaces the AM3 socket and Dorado platform in mainstream market.

The new socket interconnects with Hudson series of chipsets and some of them will come with USB 3.0, although most of them are USB 2.0 and have support for SATA 6Gbps.

Llano is, as we said before, a dual or quad core with support for DDR3 1600, DirectX 11 GPU most likely from Radeon HD 5000 generation. The graphics juice should be close to HD 5350 series or anything in the range of slower discrete graphic solutions, but with a good chance of being faster than previous, AMD 880G integrated chipset graphics.

Llano is the second  to come, and it serves the Lynx platform while the one that fits in Brazos platform is scheduled to launched in Q4 2010.
