Zacate Fusion works at 1.6GHz

Written by Fuad Abazovic


500MHz DirectX 11 graphics inside
We were lucky to find out that the demo unit that AMD showed to various journalists at a hotel near the Moscone center works at 1.6GHz.

This is a dual core Bobcat based CPU with Radeon 5500 equivalent graphics, 18W TPD and at least the prototype shown at the hotel here, runs at 1.6GHz.

Interestingly enough this is the exact same clock as the most prolific Atom models and Zacate actually should perform better than an Atom, ending up closer to Pentium and Core i3 notebooks. The graphics part works at 500MHz which is a much more modest speed than the one that we expect from Sandy Bridge, but then again, Sandy Bridge should be a higher performance part, something that is out of Zacate’s league.

These might not be the final clocks but since the CPU should ship to partners in Q4 2010, this should be very close to the final clock, although it is currently impossible to confirm whether 1.6GHz is the final clock. At least now you have an idea about Zacate’s clock speeds. Naturally Ontario will have to get a lower clock to maintain its 9W TDP.

Sounds like a beast for just 18W.

Come on 18 W

That's a freaking domination

Oh really? :roll:
It doesn't matter how fast you push a turtle to run, because in the end, it will always be a turtle.

Looking good, AMD. :D

Say so how much does Intel pay FUDzilla for propogating their FUD? 8)

such a sexy little cpu - cant wait to get my grubby, dirty hands on one

I still doubt Intel's graphics are going to be better even if it's a higher clock. Plus we don't know all the features of the chip yet, maybe they are going to incorporate their version of turbo they introduced with Phenom II x6. At least I hope so, that would be the end of the 'atom' lol

This is why I like AMD, they always provide low watt solutions ware Intel only provides power sucking monsters even on the Netbook end. Sure their Atom only drew 4w on the cpu core while the chipset sucked 22w. i945 =FTF

cant agree on this as in pref\watt intel was dominating since core (even first one, not core2).

Still i would LOVE to get this one as my new CULV-type notebook (currently with 12W 1.2Ghz dualcore celeron + 10W HD4500M). As this small guy will eat it raw on both cpu and esp gpu side still consuming less power

At the end 1.6GHz Zacate managed to beat Intel 2.4GHz Core i5 in a game isn't it Fudo ?!! :-*
