AMD to have Llano triple-core after all

Written by Slobodan Simic

Goes back into roadmap


We have heard that AMD brought back the A6-3500 on current roadmaps and that there will be a triple-core Llano after all.

The current roadmap shows the A6-3500. This either means that AMD decided there is a market for such APU, since it will fill the gap between the quad-core A6-3600 and the dual-core A4-3400 APU, or that the company planned the triple-core from the begining. As we wrote back then, some sources close to the company were claiming that they never saw the A6-3500 and that there is no plan to bring it to the market.

In case you missed this one, the A6-3500 is identical to the A6-3600 as it has the same GPU part, same clocks but lacks one core. It ticks at 2.1GHz (2.4GHz with Turbo Boost) has 3MB of cache, features Radeon HD 6530D GPU part with 320 stream processors and is clocked at 443MHz. It supports DDR3-1866 memory, has a 65W TDP and supports AMD's Dual Graphics and Turbo Core.

Back in July, we were surprised to hear that AMD had no plans regarding the triple-core Llano. We thought it was strange as AMD usually goes for as much chips as it can and faulty quad-core products simply become a triple-core ones. We have certainly heard about this one, saw it in some roadmaps and even seen some early samples of it.

For now, it looks like that A6-3500 will be arriving to markets sometimes during this month together with the rest of the lineup including Turbo Core enabled A8-3800, A6-3600 and the dual-core lineup. AMD was expecting the rest of the lineup to ramp up by the end of July but we are yet to see them on e-tail/retail shelves.

Quoting Mrs. Fairy:
AMD only buys good yields, not half baked things, a.k.a. intel faulty SB mobos.

Ooo! I love it when a troll as bad as Mr. Scary gets a face palm, foot to mouth kick in the asss!! As always tri cores are good for business, a lot of people that aren't in need for serious power benefit and get a chance to tinker around and try and unlock the fourth!

yes at one point they had refused to buy faulty (a6) quad chips, which is not what mr scary(mrs. fairy) was referring to..he was only trolling amd fanboyism until someone ELSE posted that amd had said they were not going to buy tricore(faulty quads)for their new LLANO chips and then mrs. scary jumped on his bandwagon to save face...mrs. fairy deserves no such respect...he was only saying AMD bought only good chips ONLY because he is a fanboy/troll, not because he had any idea amd wasn't buying faulty chips for llano..

That was only until yields where sufficient. Once yields were sufficient, AMD would be buying them as normal. Looks like things are to normal now, and a good enough supply of harvests built up over all the months to launch a new SKU to satisfy the market. It's better to get something for a die than nothing.

He is simply a poor devil who wake up 7:00 am for puking shit in the site besides knowing nothing, only winding rumors.

Anyone who read my reply about good yields will realize u are mental handicaped troll.

Why in hell u supose anything fudzilla post is remotelly true? fudzilla is a fast news site, same like a mc donald, almost nothing is 100% true.

It's for fuelling your troll cravings.
