AMD VP: Ontario in early 2011

Written by Fuad Abazovic


GTC 2010: 40nm by TSMC
AMD Technology Group Senior VP Chekib Arkout has just confirmed that Ontario, AMD’s first Fusion CPU is planned for an early 2011 launch.

It’s a single die design with shared low latency memory. It’s Bobcat based and the core features an aggressive out-of-order approach to instruction execution, allowing it to crunch more instructions than an Atom. More interestingly, Bobcat is sub-one watt capable, which also means that should end up more power efficient than the Atom.

It promises 90 percent of today’s mainstream performance in less than half of the die space. AMD again didn’t disclose what they are comparing Bobcat to in such a bold claim. I guess you need to trust them on it, as they are probably comparing it to one of AMD’s current cores.

Ontario is a 40nm TSMC bulk process as the graphics inside of it are 40nm. Globalfoundries also doesn’t plans to make 40nm products as they are preparing to take the world in the next generation, 28nm process that is. As we said, Bobcat has 40nm graphics inside, but at this point and time AMD is not disclosing any further details about the core itself.

The future is Fusion.

it doesn't really matter what they are comparing it to. All it matters it should be as fast as mobile athlon or something like that and it is sub 1 watt capable. I suppose at least netbooks won't suck anymore :D

sub 1watt 'capable' sounds to me like the slowest (few) model will be less then 1 watt and the rest will be higher.

of course that would still place it firmly in the atom ball park while kicking its ass on performance.

this sub 1 watt is for 1 Bobcat core. the whole chip with 2 Bobcat cores and graphics will have an TDP of 18Watt thats sill a lot of power for a netbook

So is whatever that is going in to netbooks going to be a dual core + GPU or what is it?

Some will be dual cores with GPU on the same die, some will be dual cores with GPU on the same die. Fusion ;)

So the same thing? No more single cores? Because that would be great.

zhfac, no. Some models will be single core(with GPU on die), other models(more expensive) will be dual core(with GPU on die).
Single cores will be cheaper obviously.
