AMD to have a triple-core desktop Llano

A6-3500 is the name

We managed to confirm that AMD will have a triple-core version of the A6 chip that is quite similar to the A6-3600 except for the fact that it has one core less.

The specs are pretty much identical to the A6-3600, a quad-core part with Turbo Core function. The A6-3500 has Radeon HD 6530D graphics with 320 stream processors and a 433MHz GPU clock. The CPU part of the APU has three cores ticking at 2.1GHz (2.4GHz with Turbo), 3MB of L2 Cache, support for 1866MHz DDR3 memory and a TDP of 65W.

Unfortunately, we don't have a specific release date but this one might show up together with the quad-core A6-3600 that is scheduled for "sometime in Q3".

Well that's a shocker, they are salvaging quad cores that have one bad core.

Since the CPU and GPU parts of Llano are tightly integrated, the impact on performance might not be as straightforward as in the case of CPU-only triple-cores.

But hey...gotta get rid of those defective chips... Dell and HP will be happy to sell these triple-core APUs.
