AMD's Deccan platform detailed

Written by Slobodan Simic

The 28nm Kirshna and Wichita parts
In case you've been wondering about AMD's 2012 Deccan platform we bear some good news as the guys from Donanimhaber.com managed to snatch some fresh slides dealing with Wichita and Krishna chips. With up to four Bobcat cores, lower TDPs, better DirectX 11 graphics part, and Yuba FCH for some SATA and USB 3.0 fun it is quite clear that these will bring quite an improvement over currently available Zacate and Ontario chips.

As noted, both Wichita and Krishna will be made on the new 28nm manufacturing process and currently AMD is promising up to 20 percent higher processing power, over 25 percent higher graphics performance and up to 30 percent higher compute performance. Both Wichita and Krishna are a part of Deccan platform and will use a new FT2 socket. Of course we are talking about SoC desing and 2012 Deccan platform will feature up to four Bobcat cores at a lower TDP.

Spec wise, the Deccan platform will feature up to 2MB of L2 cache, new APM Bi-Directional Turbo Core feature, support for DDR3-1600 memory (including ultra low voltage DDR3 memory), AMD's UVD3 engine with Secure Asset Management Unit (SAMU), enhanced multimedia support and Yuba FCH with support for USB 3.0 and most probably SATA 6Gbps.

According to the latest roadmaps and rumours, AMD plans to start the production of these 28nm Witchita and Krishna chips sometimes at the end of Q2 2012.

You can check out new slides here.

These will be great parts, utterly annihilating Atom/Medfield.

Unfortunately they will still not be anywhere close to most ARM SoC's in terms of power usage (Tegra excepted).

But AMD don't say whether these low power APUs will be using bulldozer cores on diet pills or whether they're using their own architecture, would be cool to have two trimmed down bulldozer modules (four cores) and the new HD 7000 series (apparently new GPU architecture) in a netbook

LOL at names - AMD's Dan platform detailed - MHUAHAHAAHA
Now its clear for everybody why im trolling here (with my 7 accounts)- im so big sucker for amd that even named some of they "products" by they boggest fagboy :D
Just wonder when we will see this "product"..i guess in 2017-should be correct time,considerin g all suckdozzer failure
Oh,not to mention that by the time Intel will be on something like 0.06 and Nvidia will have Tegra 6 in nearly every mobile.
No worries,thats typical,we happy to trail Intel by 4-5 years anyway,same as Nvidia.
No worries - i will still be trolling here with my main account - DAN - and with numerous other accounts

It's bobcat-based... They never hid it.

28nm cpu? did i miss something?

NVIDIA is sinking day by day due to there lack of technology, Poor drivers, high power consumption, high level of heat etc,etc ;-) .....

It's not a CPU, it's an APU, the good thing about an APU is that they're not limited to using just one fab process roadmap, they can choose either the CPU or GPU roadmap and switch between the two because the APU contains both parts, hence the CPU half being made on the 40nm process with the C & E series and the GPU half using 32nm on the A series because they were the smallest processes available from TSMC at the time

Yes unfortunately. nVidia has stiff competition against AMD with graphics, they don't have a x86 CPU and the Arm market is overcrowded and the fact that their fastest ARM processor isn't suitable for smartphones, but should be a monster in performance (Kal-El) in a Tablet. nShitia is currently being sandwiched between DAAMIT and Craptel.
