InsideHW.com has published an interview with Leslie Sobon, Vice
President, Worldwide Product Marketing at AMD. You can read it over here.
InsideHW: As we had the opportunity to observe Ontario working, we can’t but ask about Llano. Can you give us some more info, such as performance comparisons with Ontario, architecture…
Leslie: Bobcat is a whole new core, while Llano is taking an existing CPU core, existing graphics and adds a bit of its own special sauce, but we aren’t taking the new Bulldozer core to the next generation. There is an architectural difference from the core perspective, because we’re talking about different cores, but the way it’s implemented on the same die, well, it’s not that simple. The idea of a CPU and a GPU on the same die, shared memory with a discrete level of graphics top to bottom, that’s all the same, but it takes a different core to do that. We will have several different Llano APU’s with various levels of CPU and GPU processing power.
