AMD Fusion specifications revealed?

Posted on Saturday, August 23 2008 @ 00:07:40 CEST by

Techpowerup found some information about "Kong", this chip will supposedly be AMD's first Fusion processor. The site claims the chip will be made on a 45nm process by TSMC and says it will have a GPU identical to the RV710:
  • Core Frequency between 600 ~ 800 MHz
  • 128-bit wide memory bus (DDR3, Side-port supportive)
  • 40 Stream Processors
  • 8 TMUs, 4 ROPs
  • DirectX 10.1 support
  • UVD
  • There's also a snip of information about the interconnection and the power consumption:
    The GPU will not connect to the rest of the processor using HyperTransport , instead, a new interface referred to as "Onion" will replace it, keeping with the "green" scheme, the GPU will utilize a "Garlic" memory interface to enhance read/write performance and reduce latencies. Performance-wise, it's expected to perform 50% better than the RS780 chip. The addition of this GPU will step-up power consumption by 5~8 W (load) and 0.4~0.6 W (idle). This is the first implementation of such as design methodology, AMD wants to step into the pool only after dipping its toes.
