AMD Llano APU: The Future is Fusion Review

After the successful launch of the new APU generation, AMD has finally presented the cream of the crop of their product gamma - the A-series (codenamed Llano). Models from the A-series can be expected in portable PCs, all-in-one PCs, desktop configurations and similar devices which require a high level of performance, but are consumption-sensitive. The A-series APU contains three components that we’ve only been able to see separately thus far: the northbridge chip, the quad-core CPU and discreet DirectX 11 graphics, and all that at less than half the consumption of these three components when separated. Of course, packing all this onto a single piece of silicon was no easy task, making A-series the one with the largest APU surface of all Fusion platform products (228 m²) and the maximum consumption of 35 to 45 W...

Summary: All in all, AMD has confirmed that this is the right way for the IT industry to take, and we’re positive that the competitors are well aware of that too.
