AMD revealed it started sampling its first Fusion products, and that production of certain chips with integrated graphics will begin already in late 2010.
Advanced Micro Devices, the world’s second largest maker of microprocessors, said that it had obtained sampled of its Fusion family of products – code-named Llano and Ontario – and that production of certain chips with integrated graphics will begin already in late 2010, which means that at least Llano chips are on-track for launch in early 2011.
Llano Samples Shipping to Customers, Ontario Samples Available Internally
“We plan to commence volume production in the back half of this year. We do now have internal samples of both of our initial Fusion designs, we are learning quite a lot, and are quite happy with what we see, and we started sampling to select customers, one of those two designs,” said Dirk Meyer, chief executive officer and president of AMD, during the quarterly conference call with financial analysts.
The two Fusion products Mr. Meyer talked about are Llano, which is aimed at various notebooks, including low-power and high-end; as well as Ontario, which is designed for various ultra low-voltage devices, such as netbooks, tablets and so on.
