Zacate Fusion to ship in Q4 to partners

Written by Fuad Abazovic
fusion

Q1 2011 launch

We got a somewhat more accurate date on the availability of notebooks based on AMD's Zacate 18W Fusion part. We have learned from the sources within the company that Zacate should ship to partners in Q4 2010 and that first products should start shipping in Q1 2011.

We have also heard that we should not be surprised to see dozens of devices at CES 2011 that takes place in first days of January next year, and that shipping should follow shortly after. AMD hopes that Ontario fits the netbook sized machines and that AMD really has a fighting chance with it, while Zacate goes for 15-inch machines that should fight well in the $499+ market.

We shall see how AMD’s Zacate goes after entry level 2011 Sandy Bridge powered $499 notebook, but it will be tough.

Is Ontario shipping in Q1 2011 too as well? Also "entry Level Sandy Bridge" would probably cost at least 599+, if not more. I think Zacate should be fine until Llano gets here.

You're joking right? Or just dreaming?

Yup, sandy bridge will smoke zacate in cpu performance no doubt about it. Zacate is more of a atom killer as far as I can tell. Maybe it will run with Intel's current low power core i3's but only because its gpu should spank the current i3's gpu.

Personally I'm hoping for a zacate ITX based mobo that will kick ass for HTPC and cost less than $150 for mobo and cpu.

Ontario (9W TDP) is taking on the Atom in the netbook market.

Zacate (18W TDP) is going for CULV notebooks, SFF/nettop PCs, Mini-ITX mobos, etc.

Llano (20W to 59W TDP) takes the mainstream market in desktop and notebook variants. (Eventually replaces current Athlon II line.)

Bulldozer takes the performance/enthusiast market. (Eventually replaces Phenom II line.)

I don't know if its me, but recently, Fuad is just re-posting info that we've known for months to over a year now...It doesn't take a genius to figure out AMD's/Intel's roadmaps and plan ahead for your next upgrade, does it?

I'm definitely saving up now for my major upgrade. (Still on 2004 gear!)

There's also a dual-core Zacate at 20-something W.
