AMD cooking up new GPU naming schemes for Llano?

Posted on Monday, April 25 2011 @ 12:28:58 CEST by

Kitguru heard upcoming PCs with AMD's Llano processor plus a discrete graphics card may carry different numbers:
The new naming system for graphics with second generation Fusion (Llano) will bring a lot of new numbers to the market. It is certainly a different strategy and will get gamers and PC builders talking for a long time.

It is clear that when you put 2 GPUs together then performance will change. Should that change get a new number though? This is a good question. With normal graphic cards, it makes sense for customers to see that they will get two cards so we say Radeon HD 6850 CrossFire for example. The word CrossFire tells you that you have the two cards inside. So what if you put a low/mid card into a PC with Llano Fusion processor?

If the card is a 6450, then help from Llano might add quite a lot to the scores.
