Fud now posted his own bull article laming on Amd's liano design saying it is K8 and obsolete and wont be able to compete with intels sandy bridge.
Sandy Bridge features Intel's second generation Core architecture, supports automatic overclocking and frequency adjustment for both CPU and GPU and K8 certainly doesn’t have that.
Thuban obviously already has a simulair turbo core feature moving it to another design should be quite possible but may not even be necessary.
I dont know what he thinks but i have no doubt that AMD's graphic core will be vastly superior to the something intel can only wish to come up with.
automatic overclocking igp's dont make much sense if they use a very poor and ancient architecture.
just until recently intels IGPs weren't even able to run the vista aero interface properly.
Let alone compete with something simulair as a radeon HD3870 or beyond in preformence.http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/cpu/dis...rocessors.html
yes it wont be the fastest chip out there but that isn't its goal it is to be a mid-range chip affordable/preformence ratio and power efficient for the masses.
Infact Liano is a very promising CPU+GPU solution especialy for notebook designs this is an epic win.
What is happening to Fudo? I know him well, and he is smart, but this stuff is, well, dumb.
That said - http://www.semiaccurate.com/2010/02/...nm-llano-core/
It is K10.xh, no question, but it is heavily massaged too. Fudo is dead wrong. He is also wrong on Sandy, but that is another story.
