ZD Net
John Morris shares details about AMD’s new Llano 32nm accelerated processing units (APUs).

“AMD is now shipping its Llano 32nm APUs to customers, suggesting desktops and laptops using the new chip will be available in mid-2011 as promised. The company’s interim CEO, Thomas Seifert, made the announcement during a conference call this morning to discuss a change in AMD’s supply agreement with its manufacturing partner, GlobalFoundries. Llano, which consists of a dual- or quad-core CPU combined with a DirectX 11 graphics processor, won’t be AMD’s first APU. It is already shipping C-Series (code-named Ontario) and E-Series (code-named Zacate) APUs, manufactured by a different foundry, TSMC, on a 40nm technology. But these low-power APUs are designed for smaller netbooks and ultra-thin laptops, as well as budget notebooks.”
