What are those AMD new cpu with 4 cores?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I just read a computer magazine yesterday and there are 2 AMD new cpu, what are those? And when will those really powerful buster amd cpu come out? Seem like these cpu never come out....

And what socket and chipset do these use? What motherboard do I need to pick?

You are probably referring to the AMD Llano CPU's, A8-3850 and A6-3650. They are also known as APUs (Accelerated Processing Units) and are the first fruits of AMD acquisition of then-ATI. In other words, AMD's "Fusion" technology debut as the GPU is integrated into the CPU package.
It requires a motherboard with an FM1 socket, AM3 sockets are not compatible.

As I understand it, the CPU portion is not sensationally powerful, but the integrated GPU (A8-3850 has a "Radeon 6550D" built-in) beats any IGP from Intel or any other IGP.

I also hear, they tend to run hot, despite 45 nanometer transistor technology. But then, there's a full graphics core inside the CPU package, so no real surprise.

The interesting thing about the A6/A8 APU is that it can be 'crossfired' with a dedicated graphics card (6500 series) for some decent performance actually.

Needless to say, the graphics performance depends to some extent on the quality of DDR3 system memory and associated timings, as it is a shared-memory solution, as all IGP's are.

YES we are all waiting on the BULLDOZER for AM3+ socket still ...

As above.
In summary, those are APUs.
They run off Socket FM1. This is not compatible with existing AM3 sockets.


Not more powerful than their desktop Athlon counterparts for the most part, but it offers excellent price/performance as well as power consumption for a CPU and GPU crammed into one chip.

thanks for your details. So I guess it is not as powerful as I3, but has much better integrated graphic power.

they actually beat I3 in some cases, mostly for light gaming rigs or htpc's, internet surfing,
way better than a celeron, and the gpu part well Intel got nothing to even compare.

The CPU section performs around the same as an Athlon 2 x4

Yes and no. APU will beat Intel when you use the integrated GPU. If you use a video card then Intel beats the APU.
