Fusion dual and quad are 32nm

Written by Fuad Abazovic
fusion

Llano dual at 20W TDP or more
We got some information about upcoming butt-saving Fusion products and as far as AMD tells its partners its still on schedule for a 2011 launch.

Fusion is based on the 32nm process and other sources are implying that the CPU core will end up very similar to existing Phenom K10.5 cores. There will be at least three iterations, one dual, one quad and one dual with low power.

We can also tell you that this chip uses exclusively DDR3 memory and lets not forget that it has graphics core integrated.

The most power efficient Llano Fusion chip will need only 20W, and if you compared this with Core i5 5x0UM series, it gets really close as Arrandale in 32nm with 45nm graphics has only 18W TDP. Intel's 2011 chip based on Sandy Bridge with GPU and CPU on one monolithic core with 32nm CPU and GPU should have similar TDPs, close to 18W. Of course, this is the best case scenario.

So it's only some Llano's that will be 32nm or what?

or is it all of them?

good news none the less

If you read Charlie on SemiAccurate.com you will have known all of this (and more) for months.

We wrote about this, a while ago, but still our good Friend Demerjian doesn't have all the details all the time, we overlap :).

@FnuGk all Llano are 32nm but there will be the other 40nm Fusion also in 40nm

I still wonder what use this has for the desktop line.

This fusion chip should be great success for such computers as media centers and gaming laptops as space is everything inside, mobile graphics cards take a bit of space especially when cooling is needed but now the cooling for CPU & GPU is done on the same heatsink

"... other sources are implying that the CPU core will end up very similar to existing Phenom K10.5 cores."
Haven`t they started working on the Bulldozer architecture a long time ago? Why are the cores very similar to K10.5?

Quoting dan:

Yes, Fudzilla also mentioned most of this before.

all of this matters IF AMD really lunches it.

Except some fusion products (Ontario based) feature dual cores and will be produced on 40nm.

I'm going to be first in line for the Llano so long as they don't screw up HDMI audio like they did with the 785g chipset. Should be the perfect upgrade from my athlon II/785G home theater PC. I'm a big AMD fanboy and hope they don't make the HDMI audio screw up and force me to sandybridge.

Thank goodness for having parents to dump the old hardware off onto. :)
