AMD preparing unlocked desktop Llano

Written by Slobodan Simic

A8-3870 is the name
According to a post over at Donanimhaber.com, AMD is preparing yet another quad-core desktop Llano part, the A8-3870. Unlike the current fastest A8-series quad-core, the A8-3870 will actually feature an unlocked multiplier.

The new A8-3870 is rumoured to have a 3.1GHz clock, while the Radeon HD 6550D will be the same one we seen in the A8-3650. Radeon HD 6550D is clocked at 600MHz and features 400 stream processors. The APU supports dual-channel DDR3-1866MHz memory.

The current fastest quad-core Llano APUs, A8-3850 and the A6-3650 are currently plagued by a minor bug that actually lets you raise base clock multiplier but without any effect, thus creating a false overclock that actually doesn't do anything.

Unlike these two, the A8-3870 will have a true unlocked multiplier and will be the one that you should go for if you are craving for some extra CPU power and a extended overclocking potential.

According to the first rumours, the A8-3870 is scheduled for release in Q4 2011. Of course, we are still waiting for the rest of the desktop Llano lineup.

I mean I like competition and wish for AMD to do well, but they suck, they suck and that is all their is to it.

Their Llano cpu's are just 2 generations old, bring to speed improvements and aren't even that good as a cheap ass gaming since a simple $40 GT200 or HD5650 is so much better for gaming.

I mean where is the CPU that can actually even come close to a low level Intel CPU?

This is a low-midrange part. When used in a laptop or HTPC - this APU rocks - Intel's offerings at this price point don't hold a match to it.

Bulldozer arch. will be the i7 competitor.

I think AMD is a real innovator when it comes to x86 tech (first 64 bit, first true dual core, first on die memory controller, first 'true' on-die graphics, etc)

Most AMD CPU's crush Intel's low end just fine on top of the fact that Intel was caught with it's pants down with software compilers making software run as optimized as possible for their CPU's and as inefficient as possible for their competitors.

No, that's the wording an unbiased person would use to describe Intel's CPU releases. At this moment in time there are only two FM1 CPU's listed on Newegg...

Think AMD is on the right track with Llano, Trinity looks even better. If Trinity can run modern games at decent settings I will be building my next PC with it for sure. Imagine how small a case you could use when you don't need a dedicated GPU.

The future is Fusion lol..

@mrgerbik: Well AMD is just too late and apart from some cheap ass can't even surf nettops their CPU's suck.

Lets face it Intel is at least 3 generations above AMD and the only reason they don't crush AMD and destroy it is because then they would be handled tons of lawsuits and whatnot for being a monopoly.

O you little piece of angel, you are from planet Mars? of course they need AMD - from where they will steal innovations, also? Ha, and who is cheating like a last whore? Hm? A specialty in Europe where American anti-monopole agency is far? Hm? Who paid 1,25 billion to AMD and for what?
Ass-leaking is on the way... just for being objective!!!

I wonder if anyone knows how Nvidia actually got started? Where did there tech come from ? ... 3DFX !!! They made sure 3DFX died so they could buy it cheap.
