Llano shortage might be a thing of the past

Written by Fudzilla staff



New SKUs point to improved yields


The lengthy AMD Llano shortage could be coming to an end, months after the original A6- and A8- series APUs were launched.

Analyst Nathan Brookwood points to the launch of several new variants as s telltale sign of improved production, but it will take some time before we see the effects in the retail market.

"The new parts are basically speed bumps, and I am taking the fact AMD can ship faster versions of A-series chips as an indicator they may be able to improve their availability," he told EE Times.

Brookwood notes that Intel’s Sandy Bridge CPUs still have the upper hands in terms of sheer CPU performance, but AMD has a clear advantage in integrated graphics. Speaking of next generation chips, he expects Intel won’t meet its 22nm launch schedule, so Trinity and Ivy Bridge parts could launch at roughly the same time.

They are already replacing the Phenom II/Llano with Bulldozer/Trinity. Good luck trying to get Bulldozer into a laptop though, it's going to bulldoze the battery life. Expect really horrible CPU performance.

They are going to need to replace Bulldozer just like Intel replaced their crappy Pentium 4. Only AMD can't wait around 6 years like Intel did.

Who in their right mind will buy these CPU's now? It's a dead socket/platform. FM1 is not compatible with FM2. AMD's strength has always been backward socket compatibility Llano for desktops is a failure..a socket life of 1 year? No thanks who does AMD think it is? Intel? that they will get enough market penentration? This Llano desktop part was doomed from the day it was said it won't be compatible with FM2 besides they haven't sold many of these chips either due to shortages from Global Foundries. Something tells me Trinity is delayed to Q3 now with Piledriver[Vish era platform] or why waste manufacturing money on a dead platform.

Yes coz AMD fans like you deserve that & you still think AMD is good & giving you nice performance & does what you want magically! You the same guys that when you buy Intel you coming online & unleashing the hate on AMD like me. I think u gonna follow in my footsteps soon & I think u have the potential to wakeup & enter the real world & stop living in the AMD created Matrix. I care about hot girls like you! 8)
