AMD Fusion suited for new form factors

Posted on Wednesday, January 27 2010 @ 12:36:41 CET by

AMD revealed it will unveil a new platform next year that is targeting "new form factors" under the ultrathin notebook category:
Codenamed Brazos, the platform will include Ontario, an APU (accelerated processing unit) under the chipmaker's Fusion strategy. Born out of the acquisition of graphics maker ATI Technologies, Fusion is AMD's branding for its plans to integrate a GPU and CPU on the same chip, and was initially targeted to launch in 2009.

Brazos follows Nile, AMD's 2010 ultrathin notebook platform, Tan See Ghee, marketing director for South Asia at AMD, said in a media briefing Tuesday on the company's roadmap. Brazos also has a "lower power envelope" compared to Sabine, another ultrathin notebook platform also to be released in 2011. Sabine will contain the Llano APU which had been taped out in 2009. All APUs are manufactured under the 32-nanometer process technology

The "new" form factors Brazos is angled toward refer to those new to the industry, not just AMD, he emphasized.
