AMD starts shipping Llano APUs, availability planned for this quarter

AMD logoHave the masses asked for more Fusion? Let's say yes and congratulate AMD on beginning shipments of its second APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) line - Llano. Coming to desktops, all-in-ones and notebooks, these new APUs are made by GlobalFoundries and are the first 32nm chips in AMD's offer.

The Llano family will be marketed as the A-series and is set to make its retail debut, both in systems and on its own (as boxed chips) later this quarter, probably around Computex (early June).

The A-series APUs feature two or four x86 cores ('improved' Phenom II cores), 4MB of L2 cache (1MB per core), an integrated dual-channel DDR3 memory controller, a DirectX 11 GPU (with 400, 320 or 160 Stream Processors, depending on model), and a TDP of up to 100W.

No news on Bulldozer though, hopefully this doesn't mean a delay. Don't get us wrong, Llano seems 'nice' but we want mo' powa'.
