Ontario to launch in Q1 2011

Written by Fuad Abazovic
fusion

To be showcased at CES
It is expected that many AMD partners and OEMs will have their Fusion based products, powered by Ontario processors, ready for CES. The availability should follow shortly after and by Cebit time Ontario-based products should be quite widespread.

This is a bit better timeframe than previous 1H of 2011 and Ontario should do good against Intel's Atom in its single-core iteration, while dual-core Ontario plans to fight with Pentium dual core class notebooks.

It is all about AMD’s partners now, they have the samples, they do like it as its small and cheap and it can give you some eight hours battery life, of course in best case scenario. This is probably the most interesting chip that AMD has made since the good old K8 and it has a good chance to really win some market share for AMD.

"Ontario should do good against Intel's Atom in its single-core iteration, while dual-core Ontario plans to fight with Pentium dual core class notebooks."

What is it with you lately, eh? Slow news month?

Round 1: Mini-ITX, embedded, SFF, netbooks, etc.
Ontario vs Atom => single-core vs single-core

Round 2: Mini-ITX, embedded, SFF, netbooks, etc.
Ontario vs Atom => dual-core vs dual-core

Round 3: Budget notebooks.
Zacate vs Pentium => dual-core vs dual-core

(Damn comment post symbol limit!)

...Continued.

Ontario is going to crap on Intel's Atom. (With its out-of-order execution cores and GPU-based IGP.)

Zacate is going to offer a better overall experience for a lower price. Anandtech has already shown the AMD demo system can take on a current Core i5-520M based notebook.

Difference: Atom IS already available. Ontario not. Maybe it's another of AMDs vaporware products.

And at the time we can actually buy it it's called "Oracle Ontario".

(actually - I quite like the name :)

What idiot expects a product to be available before it gets released? That's buggy logic! And no, Ontario is not some vaporware!

Ontario isn't yet released so who cares that Atom exists right now? They existed from some time, at the beginning people took the netbook bait and after a short while they were disappointed by what Atom can (or more precisely cannot) deliver so the hype went down dramatically.

Putting it in AMD's terms: real men use real netbook processors!

HAHAHAHAHA!

You actually PAID for one of those? AND are bragging about it? Kind of like being smug about being mugged.

Atom blows. Period. I work in a shop and 1 out of every 3 ppl who buy Atom based netbooks comes back and asks if being that slow is normal.

I am using my C2Q9550/8GB RAM/dual 4890/2TB RAID 10 data array/500GB boot disk/overclocked ZOMBIE SLAYING MACHINE.

It sucks energy like there's no tomorrow and I love it!

I got a netbook. It runs Linux, sits on a shelf operating as an SSH target host vibile to the internet via port forwarding. It runs 24/7 and costs nearly nothing to operate.

It seems they have never heard about Global Warming in the US.

We in New Zealand actually care about power consumption.

You do me an injustice. I am not from the USA.
