A leaked document seen by X-bit Labs reveals AMD plans to axe its Athlon, Phenom and Sempron brandnames to emphasize its corporate AMD Vision trademark. According to the document, AMD's upcoming Llano and Zambezi processors will not receive any new brandnames, they will be divided into different classes of Vision platforms, including the FX-series, A-series and E-series.
The code-named Zambezi processors based on Bulldozer micro-architecture with four, six or eight cores will belong to FX-series and will be sold under AMD Vision Black and AMD Vision Ultimate labels.
The accelerated processing units known as Llano - which will have two or four cores as well as ATI Radeon HD 6000-class graphics core - will become A-series processors. Such chips will power AMD Vision Ultimate and AMD Vision Premium platforms.
The low-end of the market will continue to be served E-series accelerated processing units with one or two cores and a basic Radeon HD 6000-class graphics endine code-named Zacate under AMD Vision sticker.
