AMD to use Coreboot in Llano, other upcoming parts

Written by


Bye BIOS bye
AMD is planning to use Coreboot technology on its upcoming Llano APUs, shifting away from the venerable BIOS system.

The outfit has been pushing the Corebook concept in the server and embedded markets for a few years now, but this is the first time it will drop BIOS in consumer oriented products.

Coreboot is basically a stripped down Linux kernel which should allow vendors a bit more flexibility, as it can load stand-alone ELF executables, such as Etherboot or SeaBIOS, as well as other kernels.

AMD claims Coreboot can be useful in a myriad of applications and markets, but more importantly it can deliver a significant reduction in power consumption. AMD is apparently planning to implement the new technology all upcoming platforms.

Not everyone can afford to buy intel chips jackass. With an old phenom II cpu you get the performance of a Core i5 750 at lower cost. Throw in OC and you get a gaming PC.

It really doesn't matter which CPU is better, has more performance or is cheaper...

What will happen, if Intel is the only on Chipseller for x86-CPUs?
Yeah, you think right... the costs will explode, the evolution of CPUs will szop(slow down and we have another monopol out there...

Everyone is happy, that mac is in market back again, but nobody see, that AMD could fall down like mac did, some years ago.

PS: Please excuse my bad englisch, i'm not a native :/

i do not understand the fight what difference is between 2600k and a phenom2 x4 or x6 in games i have literally seen same results with the same vga card in a 2600k and my old 955 maybe 3+ fps at full hd resolution maybe at lower resolution or in oc mode is better still 32nm is not what i expected i will definitely move to bulldozer next year in between i own a good cpu for games and i am satisfied ..maybe ivy bridge will be faster ..maybe not
