[TH] Quadcore Llano APU to include Radeon HD 6550

post #1 of 21

http://www.tomshardware.com/news/Fusion-Sandy-Bridge-Llano-Radeon-HD-6550-APU,12682.html - Source.

I apologize if this is old news, but to sum it up:
AMD's upcoming line of Llano Accelerated Processing Units (APU's) will have 6550 graphics as well as support Hybrid Crossfire (paired with a discrete AMD Radeon HD 6570 or HD 6670).
The hybrid will be recognized as a Radeon HD 6690 (how awesome is that ?).
Quote:
In addition to the Radeon HD 6550 core, AMD's Llano chips will include the A8-3550 and A8-3550P quad-core APUs and feature a thermal design power (TDP) of 100W. The Radeon HD 6550 itself will be clocked at 594 MHz, offer 400 Stream processors, and come packed with DirectX 11 support.
Quote:
When the HD 6550 is working with either one of the discrete GPUs, the Fusion-based graphics core will be recognized as "Radeon HD 6690."


Personally, I think this is pretty exciting news. I can't wait for benchmarks.
I presume the Llano graphics will outperform Intel's HD 3000. I'm not so optimistic about the CPU though. As long as it's not just another Phenom II with integrated graphics, then it's progress, I suppose
Either way, competition will keep prices low, hopefully.

6970 = 5870
6870 = 5770

6550 = what?

A downclocked 5670 would be the only card that makes sense considering its 400 stream processor claim.

I will say I am disappointed in the TDP....although I am not entirely sure what the wattage will be based off of that which is what I am more concerned about (Performance/watt). Someone want to enlighten me?

I won't expect miracles from AMD until we see Bulldozer on their 28nm node. Llano is a stop-gap.

Woah Cant wait! Ive been looking for the perfect laptop that I can carry around + play demanding games without having to sell a kidney to pay for it. Hopefully, they bring out laptops with this at a great price!

6970 is greater than the 5870 by a bit
The 6870 beats the 5850's.
5770 (also 6770 is it's rebrand) is about 1-2% better than the old 4870's though with new driver updates, it's more like 5% now.


Unfortunately, I can't find any actual benchmarks of the 6550 so my guess is that it should be around the same level as the 5550. Specs wise, it's more akin to the 5570 but it's downclocked so you have to keep that in mind.

Although, to be honest, that's actually a really good TDP depending on the clock speed of the CPU. I mean, it's got a 100w TDP and the 6550 should use around 30-40w on load so the CPU is around the 60-70w range. Not bad at all for a quad core.

Exactly.
Also, for midrange gamers at a tight budget, this would be an awesome option paired with a discrete HD 6670. Low power too.
