AMD shipped 3 million Fusion parts

Written by Fudzilla staff


Off to a very good start
AMD has managed to ship more than three million Fusion APUs so far. Shipments passed the 1 million mark by the end of 2010 and the outfit is pleased with the results.

In an interview with Kitguru AMD Product Marketing exec and snappy dresser Sasa Marinkovic stressed the importance of Fusion in AMD’s plans to seize a foothold in some market segments previously dominated by Intel. Marinkovic believes consumers who are after a stylish no-nonsense PC will go for Fusion parts, particularly for home media systems and all-in-ones.

“AMD Fusion gives consumers the low price point and power consumption they need, alongside class-leading graphics capabilities and powerful multi-core processing”, said Marinkovic.

However, Fusion’s main battleground remains in the mobile space and Marinkovic was happy to point out that newly introduced AMD Fusion parts currently account for half of AMD laptop shipments in the world. This is rather impressive considering that AMD is shipping just two entry level parts, the C-50 and E-350, while the much more promising Llano architecture is coming in a few weeks.

The shift towards graphics-enabled processors will clearly give AMD a lot more breathing space and competitiveness in the laptop segment, traditionally dominated by Intel.

I guess lliano will completely take off unless sandy increase graphics performance alot.
zacate and ontario is freaking 40nm, thats like the medieval for computers soon... 32 NM is here, and we know what they could do on 40nm with 18W tdp now 45W, 3x performance atleast.
Welcome lliano to laptops, lets pc laptop casual gaming take off :)
hope intel follow quickly in 2012

Yes i completely agree. It will bring a lot of competitiveness in this arena with a good graphics performance and performance, which in turn will benefit end users by providing a variety of choices at competitive prices.

^ hopefully... there's nothing more frustrating than an uptight OEM who puts a high price tag on something cheap (just in price, not build quality nor functionality) only because it sells or it is predicted to sell well.

Performance? Yeah, beating Atom and everything. Nice on paper, but where i live you still can't buy one with c-30 for less than 350$, whith average price of 400-450$. For that cash I can have full size laptop with c2d and hd5470. Intel on the other hand is doing great with it's Atom priced from 200-400$. Oh, did i mentioned Intel is on every shelf of every store and AMD Fusion can be ordered only with minimum one week waiting time?

Apparently, demand is high... ;) Surely that isn't a bad sign! Once they get more produced, surely the price will drop a bit too.
