Intel mobile exec resigns

Written by Fudzilla staff


Chandrasekher off to pursue other interests
Intel senior VP and general manager of the chipmaker’s Ultra Mobility Group Anand Chandrasekher has decided to call it quits after two decades with the company.

Intel announced that Chandrasekher is leaving the company to pursue “other interests” and that he will be temporarily replaced by VPs Mike Bell and Dave Whalen. Chandrasekher spent 23 years with Intel and oversaw the development of Atom series ultra-mobile parts.

Intel executive David Perlmutter announced that Intel will remain committed to the mobile business in the future.

He knew that AMD Llano will embarrass Intel very bad so he quit ! :P

I think you mean Bulldozer. Llano is little more than K8 with a supercharged IGP.

Granted, I doubt that either really scare Intel, but the price cuts will be nice.

Actually, leaked Llano specs show it obliterating Core i5 in a lot of games/benchmarks.

In any case, Chandrasekher was head of UMG which is Atom's domain. He saw that Atom was piss poor for tablets and phones and decided to quit before everyone else realized it.

Games and benchmarks which favor the GPU. Which means that the Redwood-based IGP in the APU is much faster than HD Graphics 3000. Which is extremely obvious. In CPU benchmarks, Llano won't even come remotely close unless there's a demanding GPU benchmark running in the backround causing the HDG3000 to take L3 cache and memory bandwidth from the CPU, which causes the CPU to stall.

What things do people do with the laptop, where cpu is used much more then gpu ?

I for example use my laptop or is it netbook...lets call it ultraportable then... for gaming and photoshop mostly, this profit from strong GPU more. Strong cpu is more for stuff like CAD or encoding, who the fck would do it with a laptop ?

That depends on the person, just like it does with desktops. (Yep, believe it or not, not everyone only uses laptops for basic tasks!) Still, all it really means is that Llano is a better pick for light gaming, which really doesn't change anything. There won't be any difference between them in movie watching.

Also, Llano is for desktops as well.

I really doubt somebody buys a laptop for high load cpu tasks and even if, not in the price range Llano would be so this shouldnt cause much problems.

I see Llano and Brazos more like something that makes stuff from the old generation better and more affordable now, not the high end stuff, thats Bulldozers zone (hopefully)

Btw, isnt desktop Llano low end stuff mostly ? Seems like K10 with GPU D:

I don't know how much will be faster than HDG3000; all depends on TDP budget. I have seen a 100W Liano on roadmap but even lower rated cpus,the situation is not clear.HDG3000 draws 15W so Amd needs of a careful balance between cpu and gpu to stay in the 95W TDP range, that is an OEM standard.Amd will be in BIG embarrassment in Q1/2012 with the SB shrink in 22nm,Intel will pump the Gpu clock.I don't agreed with your analysis about SB cpu stall.I'll wait a review from a good website :).

Some people do, believe it or not. Otherwise, Intel wouldn't have a market for mobile quad-cores. Not everyone wants to have two computers, and some people just prefer a laptop over a desktop, even if it costs more. You can't base the market on your needs/preferences alone.

Llano is mainstream. Basically, it's the new Athlon.
