Ontario 5.5W single-core comes in 2011

Written by Fuad Abazovic
fusion

Next year and no graphics
Ontario 40nm Fusion might be the CPU to save AMD and to get some investor confidence back. This processor comes in TSMC's 40nm process and it will actually appear in a few iterations and he most power conscious one will consume only 5.5W.

It is a single-core Ontario CPU and it comes without a GPU, so it will be able to work with a 5.5W TDP. This matches the magical TDPs of Intel's CULV Core 2 Solo SU3500 clocked at 1.4GHz which was the best TDP for Intel's non-Atom cores. Most CULVs that Intel sells today are 10W, but again Atom N200 series has 2.5W TPD which is drasticaly lower.

The latest generation Atom N4xx has a 5.5W TDP with graphics and memory controller included in the core, which means that AMD's Bobcat-based core won't be as power efficient as the latest Atoms.

Again this will be the most power efficient AMD to date, and its scheduled to come in 2011. This CPU targets the embedded, notebook and small form factor market.

No integrated GPU? Would that make sense? I'd imagine having the GPU (because any system would need one anyway) on the same die as the CPU being more efficient than putting them in the chipset. Oh well, maybe it saves R&D.

I thought the same thing, no on-die GPU means that there has to be a discrete one, which just doesn't make any sense on a 5.5W CPU. Fudo must be wrong here.

Why worry that much, analyst did not worry how long the Fermi finished baking (but still half baked)?

I think AMD is doing its best but it doesn't want to repeat its mistake by releasing half baked product like early Phenom did.

Is that a joke?

"Is that a joke?"

I just wanted to know if it was something official or not..

You can't know that simply by reading the next line after the title. 8)
