AMD's VP tells Llano comes in 1h 2011

Written by Fuad Abazovic
fusion

Lots of partner interested
Rick Bergman, AMD Senior vice president in charge of the graphics group has told investors that Brazos and Ontario can and will ship in the first half of Q1 2011 and he also added that Llano comes in first half of 2011.

To be on schedule, Llano has to come before the end of June, so we guess Computex might be the perfect chance to show and tell about this product.

Bergman has a big title that needs a complete sentence to describe his work. „Rick Bergman is senior vice president and general manager of AMD’s products group, with responsibility for delivering AMD’s computing platforms and managing the graphics and microprocessor product development teams.“ In other words he takes care of GPUs and APUs, anything that has graphics inside. He claims than they have a lot of partners interested in Llano and let's hope he is right.

He showed a demo with HD video playing and a chap playing a 3D game and claimed that „we (AMD) are the only company who can do it“. We are very convinced that Sandy Bridge based Core i5 won’t have any problems doing this, but of course AMD's graphics will be better. However, the CPU will draw more power and it will end up sloer than Intel.

Llano looks interesting as this is the first born child of AMD's $5.6 billion acquisition of ATI, and we are not convinced that Llano is a product worth $5.6 billion. Let me remind you, AMD spent 5.6 billion USD to buy ATI back in 2006 with Fusion and integrating CPU and GPU and Ontario and Llano are the first product of that marriage.

"However, the CPU will draw more power and it will end up slower than Intel."

Slower, probably; but draw more power… How exactly do you know that?

And obviously, Llano isn't the only Fusion product, nor the only AMD GPU, for that matter, so it doesn't need to be worth $5.6 billion… You just couldn't resist bashing AMD, could you?

Faud, i think its time u call it a day. afterall it is wise to quit when u are in ur peak.....(not saying ur at ur peak, just saying ur quality is declining. so the next best place to quit the profession or reporting is now)...unless of course u enjoy all the negative comments like our friend tr0y:p

Faud, your bias is too obvious, if you could only just give us the news with out your perosnal opinions, like real journalist do.
Its time to look in the mirror...you are not a journalist any more.

Besides being source of interesting info, mostly Fudzilla is just pile of garbage opinions. You can't read even one article about AMD, ATI or Apple without bashing in more or less obvious form.
If you are doing it just to generate more comments, it probably works for you, but it has little to do with journalism.

Look at Anand articles. He knows how to do his job professionally. It's too hard for you, isn't it? :)

Ontario and Zacate, not Llano, are AMD's 'first born children' and "we are not convinced that Llano is a product worth $5.6 billion" is a stunningly retarded thing to say.

On the positive side you've now left Theo in the dust for for the title of the most cluelessly biased tech site writer.

Congratulations !

Watch, Intel will try to get 22nm out ASAP and all the article writers will compare Intel's 22nm to AMD's 32nm CPU's. Regardless I'm sticking with AMD as I don't bend over when making hardware purchases.

As always BS talk. How can Llano consume more power being on a more advanced process than intel (SOI + HKMG + Gate first)?

And about performance, it's too early to say that SB will own Llano in every sense. The good thing about Llano is that you can use its GPU to do some complex calculations thanks to OpenCL (can't say the same about intel). ;-)

If you want to be taken seriously while reporting news you must make sure your spelling is correct, it doesn't take much effort to do this unless your just doing a quick and lazy job! It's slower and not sloer. :-)
