Llano to remain in short supply

Written by Fudzilla staff


Until Trinity shows up in 2012
It appears AMD and Globalfoundries are facing some rather serious issues with 32nm yields and Digitimes claims Llano shipments won’t pick up anytime soon.

Citing motherboard makers, the report claims supply is unlikely to recover until AMD launches Trinity, its next generation APU slated to replace Llano in the first quarter 2012.

The backlog of Llano orders seems to be significant and punters believe AMD can’t meet consumer demand by the end of 2011, even if it manages to resolve some of the yield issues.

Despite the setbacks, AMD generated a lot of buzz with Llano chips and it managed to secure quite a few design wins, particularly in the notebook segment. Trinity will stick to the same 32nm production process, but it will feature superior Bulldozer derived CPU cores and next generation Southern Islands graphics.

"it will feature superior Bulldozer derived CPU cores and next generation Southern Islands graphics."

Spoken like a true Prince. Good Job, nothing like a nice Bulldozer Core...

Well, if 32nm yields are awful, then I don't want them to waste their production lines on Llano, if most of us can live without a Fusion desktop. Bring on BD.

this claim of yield problems doesn't actually line up with the fact that FM1 chips are reasonably in-stock on the street. the top-end chip tends to be a bit scarce, but that's more a sign of demand and/or value.

Quoting markhahn:

well, the higher the yield the more top end chips will also be made (fewer chips that need parts disabled to work, more parts that reach the required frequency)
so a lack of higher end part could very well indicate low yields.

the 100watt A8-3850 can be found reasonably well btw, but the 65watt A8-3800 is nowhere to be found(in stock)

its a shame as I was looking to buy one for my HTPC. I hope this sorts itself out as its not helping AMD (or gloflo) in any way.
