Sorry, maybe it was a different CPU that was canceled then?
The reason I ask is this:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMD_Fusion
|Codenamed the Falcon family.
Announced in AMD Technology Analyst Day July 2007.
Incorporation with GPU cores.
Originally planned with the codenamed Bulldozer processor cores focusing on desktop market with TDP of 10 to 100 Watts.
An option to be implemented into mobile phones, UMPC and small multimedia devices , with the codenamed Bobcat processor core focusing on low power consumption (1 to 10 Watts TDP) computations for handheld devices such as UMPC.
So I guess it's Falcon? Is Falcon = Bobcat = "old gen" Bulldozer (which is actually NOT a Bulldozer) but with lower TDP? As the last paragraph is sort of misleading for me.
Here's how I understand it: we planned
a desktop version with an integrated GPU core (Falcon) that was supposed to be called Bulldozer but is not, so we tweaked the architecture and changed codename to Bobcat. Then, we got rid of the idea completely to to have a GPU already integrated into desktop version CPU (would like to know why, if possible). Is this correct?
Can you shed some light on that?Edited by DjiXas - 8/12/10 at 10:42pm
