Brazos Fusion is different from Ontario

Written by Fuad Abazovic
fusion
32nm and not Ontario

Llano is a 32nm based Fusion that is a part of upper mainstream market and sits in Lynx platform and the codename of the APU that sits in Brazos, more affordable Fusion might be Zacate. This is one of the names that has been floated around.

Zacate is a term that is used in Mexico and California and represents grass, forage or hay. The important part is that this Zacate APU is different from Ontario APU, as Ontario is 40nm mobile part while Brazos is powered by 32nm core.

Zacate also supports up to four cores but the first version will be dual and features DirectX 11 graphics and DDR3 support.

Ontario comes at some point in 2011, in 40nm, but we don’t know much about it.
