New Llanos listed in Europe

Written by


Proper Fusion and Athlon parts
A few British retailers have already started listing upcoming Llano processors, including the first Athlon branded processors based on the new 32nm core.

Listings include the somewhat controversial A6-3500 triple core, along with A6-3600 and A8-3800 parts. At this point it is rather hard to work out the MSRP for each individual processor, mainly due currency rate fluctuations and the fact that the British chose not to embrace the euro, quite wisely one might add.

Judging by the early listings, new 65W Llanos will cost a tad more than their 100W counterparts. They are marginally slower, but offer superior TDPs and Turbo. Basically the 3800 and 3600 cost about 10 percent more than the 3650 and 3850, but take this with a grain of salt, as early listings are often unreliable as far as prices go. The A6-3500 tri-core should go for about €76, making it the cheapest Fusion part to date.

However, AMD will also reinvent the Athlon brand with a couple of Llano-based parts. The Athlon X4 631X and Athlon X4 631X feature 100W TDPs, but they lack integrated graphics. The latter is a 2.6GHz part and the list price stands at €68. For comparison, the A6-3650, with the same TDP and clock speed, goes for about €90.

We still don’t have an exact launch date, but we expect to see new Llanos in retail shortly.
