[WSJ] AMD Tries to Close Gap in Chip Power Usage With Intel

post #1 of 18

AMD on Tuesday is unveiling its second product line that combines two once-separate classes of chip technology, this time targeting notebook PCs at mainstream price points. The new chips include graphics circuitry—good for chores like playing games and high-definition-movies—along with the microprocessor circuitry AMD has long offered for handling other computing chores.

Basically what they're saying is that the A-Series APU is being unveiled tomorrow! Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure you have to pay to read the rest, but the basic news you need to know is there. An official unveiling (though I thought they did this at computex?) happens tomorrow, following with what I assume is the product release-to-manufacturing.

Meh, don't care about the APUs, I want Bulldozer news.

Point of this article being: I think we'll finally see Fm1 motherboards in stores.

AMD has a Fusion Developer Summit in Seattle this week. They are supposed to have their "VISION 2011 Launch" during this event. That will certainly be the official launch of Llano. It may also include information about Bulldozer. So far this slide posted by DH has been exactly correct.

This may be a very interesting week even if you only care about bulldozer.

I love it how old-school news journals think they can charge for internet article subscriptions.

Well atleast at AFDS we'll get to know what lies in store with HD 7000 series SP cores.

Quote:
At the heart of every AMD GPU is a power aware high performance set of compute units that have been advancing to bring users new levels of programmability, precision and performance. Starting with the introduction of the HD 2000 family of Unified Shader Systems to the PC consumer markets in 2007, AMD has delivered four unique generations. In this presentation, an overview of AMD's Graphics Core Next architecture will be introduced. We’ll talk about the architecture of this new shader system, and how it provides improvements to the necessary software stack and creates user programming flexibility. We believe you will obtain an understanding of this new architecture and how it lays the foundation for future AMD architectures.
Another quote from the site:

Quote:
GPU shader cores have been evolving frequently and significantly at AMD. We introduced our common shader core in 2007 with the HD 2000 series. This introduced the unified VLIW-5 instruction set that we've had since. In late 2010, we introduced the first significant departure from this core architecture, the symmetrical VLIW-4 used in the HD6900 series of products. In this presentation, we will review that evolution, but also present an overview of the next generation of AMD cores under development. This next generation of cores will propel forward its capabilities and continue this evolution.

Can't wait =]
I've been waiting for llano to come out in stores for laptops so I can have a portible simi-gaming computer without it costing an arm and a leg for a laptop + dedicated graphics chip.

Hope llano is worth the wait!
