More Llano specs surface

Written by


11 SKUs, but no clocks revealed
AMD is slowly gearing up to introduce new Llano APUs over the next several months and it appears we will see as many as 11 SKUs by the end of the year.

Xbit Labs scored a full spec sheet of Llano processors and it reveals some rather interesting details. All of them will be based on the Husky core, which is a revamped K10.5, but there will be quite a few differences in terms of graphics.

AMD will offer HD 6000 class Beaver Creek graphics on faster models, with either 320 or 400 stream processors. Dual-core Llanos will feature Winter Park graphics with 160 shaders. In addition, GPU clocks will range from 594MHz to 443MHz depending on the SKU.

However, the spec sheet does not include exact CPU clocks, so much is still left to the imagination. Back at Cebit, AMD showed off a mobile Llano part, designated A8-3510MX. This particular model runs at 1.8GHz, but bear in mind that it is a mobile part with a rather conservative TDP envelope. However, Xbit’s spec sheet reveals several desktop variants with TDPs ranging from 65W to 100W. The highest numeric designation is A8-3560P, followed by 3550, A6-3460 and so on.

With its current Propus quad-cores, AMD manages to squeeze out as much 3.2GHz from 95W parts. Unlike Propus, Llano is a 32nm processor, so it could do even better, but it also incorporates the GPU and has more cache. In any case, Llano appears to be a very interesting architecture and it should give AMD a fighting chance against new mid-range Intel Sandy Bridge processors.

Leaked benchmarks have already shown that Llano annihilates Sandy Bridge where it counts: i.e. anything that needs even a small amount of graphics processing. All that at lower power consumption, and most likely lower price.

AMD showed off it's Llano test rig in CeBit. The test set up was made up such a manner that AMD of course came out as a winner.

But the set up was so unreal - at least for me. Many graphic performance dependent apps running simultaneously and then counting FPS. Yawn.

To me it is obvious. AMD will gain the IGP grown and will be cheaper. Intel will win the CPU race and be less power hungry.

I'm gpu constrained 40% of the time
I'm cpu constrained 10% of the time
I'm hdd constrained 40% of the time
I'm bus constrained 5% of the time
I'm mem constrained 5% of the time

So what do I need ?
Cpu ?
Nope, a system, a SSD and a gpu is currently whats missing from laptops.

this could bring what I need, if the quads are rather cheap then it's all good ( mobile)
Couldnt care less about cpu speed is amazing or not.

how r those negs treating ya ?

The E-350's turned out EVEN better when they were released to market, Intel was taken by surprise and now Atom has been left in the dust.
AMD has a solid team of engineers, one that has proven to embarrass Intel in the past, they'll do it again.

Pete, those Propus cores were using around 60W in real world tests, not 95W. It's easy to confuse the readers when equaling TDP with power consumption. If the system had potential, for 95W they could go a lot higher. You also forgot to mention it is socket FM1, so people don't get ideas about Llano being AM3+.

rundll, you've forgot your 32, jokes aside, think of the GPU as a dedicated beefed-up Floating Point Unit that otherwise would have been in the CPU anyway, but which doesn't run on x86 but OpenCL, DirectX etc. It's still a valid processing unit and a lot of us want to make use of it. I personally can't wait to get my hands on one of these and code an app to see how far it goes. It has a lot of potential.

I think AMD has the win for best cpu to graphics ratio in this one. Some of the lower models i.e 65w would make a good htpc chip.

I'm waiting for the 95w ~ 125w APUs. I want more than the low end.

No one stated clocks... they're to be determined, which means later we'll get some leaked info about them. Also 125W is not on the table... these won't go past 100W and four of the eleven are already at this figure.

"I think AMD has the win for best cpu to graphics ratio in this one."

I think are exactly correct. :-)

If you're that GPU constrained, you probably need a dedicated card.
