AMD plans to ship three million Llanos in Q3

Written by Fudzilla staff


28nm APUs reportedly taped out
AMD is preparing to start shipping Llano APUs in June or July and the company seems to have rather big plans for the new Fusion part.

According to Digitimes, citing motherboard makers, AMD is expecting to ship as many as three million units by the end of the third quarter. This would make up a whopping 40 percent of all AMD CPU shipments in said quarter, which is a rather optimistic scenario.

However, bear in mind that AMD managed to ship a million Brazos platforms by the end of 2010, despite the fact that they were not even on sale back then. Many of them ended up with OEMs and we assume the same will happen with initial batches of Llano APUs. Asus, MSI and Gigabyte already have several Llano motherboard models ready to go.

In related news, 28nm Krishna and Wichita APUs, as well as Southern Islands GPUs are currently in the tape-out phase. However, this should be taken with a grain of salt.

Those are very good news.

Where is Fuad, I think he should announce this with meanwhile Nvidia has no news about upcoming next gen GPU. =p

Llano has been shipping for weeks.

And Krishna taped out weeks ago.

AMD need to broaden their road map.
Fusion APU's are great for the low to mid range use but they are going to be left way behind in terms of high power gpu compute performance.

Nvidia's Denver project products are going to unleash the full memory bandwidth available on discrete gpu cards which are just not available to APU's which use system rescources and remove the pcie bottleneck as these product have a an integrated cpu onboard for local calculation....

AMD should not put all their eggs in the fusion basket, they need to maintain production of a traditional cpu as with Zambezie for the high end and develop a hybrid cpu/gpu discrete card similar to Nvidias Denver project as combination of these types of discrete cards with traditional cpu's are going to dominate the enthusiast and hpc market as OpenCL and Direct Compute type applications come to the fore.

Don't expect any positive comments from Fuad on this one. As of now, he must be grinding his teeth due to this. 8)

Define "CPU" inside Denver. Surely it couldn't be a useful x86 design or Intel and AMD would stop that. So any CPU in Denver would have to emulate unless when they say CPU they mean a dedicated graphics engine which is hardly revolutionary...

I'm not a programmer or anything but I thought that such a project Denver combination would work through the OpenCl API......does the cpu still have to be X86 compatible to be of "much use" in such a scenario?

Yes, the base of the OpenCL API in this case is exactly x86, so the CPU would still need to be x86.

But the talk is about denver and that is pretty much like tegra, probably overworked. It's based on ARM.
