Ontario and Zacate Fusion launch at CES 2011

AMD exec VP confirms


One of AMD's key executive vice presidents has confirmed that Ontario and Zacate Fusion cores are scheduled to launch at CES 2011.

Rick Bergman, AMD Products Group Senior Vice President & General Manager informed several AMD partners about the schedule and the processors have already been sampled.

They are fully functional and run on production clock speeds. As far as we can tell, that speed is 1.6GHz for Zacate at 18W TDP and this sound be enough for small form factor desktops, all-in-one PCs or the notebook market.

AMD is also “meeting its Q4 production schedule” and it is comited to announce OEM systems based on Ontario (single core 9W TDP) and Zacate (dual core 18W) at CES 2011.

Systems are expected some 30 days after announcement, so you should be able to buy Fusion by early February 2011.

I only buy AMD and ATI because it's a better deal all-round. In a 10x10 foot room in Floriduh my 8800GT was running idle UNDERCLOCKED at 170F, replaced it with a reasonably faster 5770 and it idles at 118 and at full load is still cooler then the 8800GT. Granted it's not an apples to apples comparison.

Also my socket AM3 CPU will work in a socket AM3+ motherboard next year, if you bought an Intel chip you won't be able to put it in a newer version of the board in a different socket...or even quite often in the same socket! That's a lot of wasted hardware.

If Nvidia brought SLI to AMD and cooled the cards a bit OR Intel stopped treating consumers like dirt I'd be happy to buy their products.

...and you don't see more then 60FPS any way on a 60Hz LCD.

AMD said that they would be shipping the chips before December so that Fusion powered products would be available at the start of the new year, can't wait to watch some flawless HD content on a new netbook, gonna boast & show it off at Uni :D
