    News - Demo shows AMD mobile Llano APU bettering Intel's Sandy Bridge chip

    In AMD-controlled conditions, anyway.

    Re: News - Demo shows AMD mobile Llano APU bettering Intel's Sandy Bridge chip

    I'm pretty impressed, even allowing for the AMD-biased aspect of things.
    I run machines now that I consider to be 'good enough' that struggle to play back 1080p alone, never mind anything else concurrent.

    Edit: Actually there is one other thing worth mentioning, and it's a hope really, but a potentially big one.
    If AMD can find some way to allow the on-board GPU for alot of the calculation work, yet also allow (concurrent) discrete GPU for gaming such as my Radeon 6850, then I might be very taken. I feel that Intel really dropped the ball with the whole on-board 'GPU / Quick Sync / 'H' series chipset / no discrete GPU' requirements, making a complete mess of what could have been very good. AMD have a real opportunity here to become very appealing to a good many people, especially gamers.

    Thumbs up Re: News - Demo shows AMD mobile Llano APU bettering Intel's Sandy Bridge chip

    Yes, it certainly looks very good, the only downside being that we probably won't see a Laptop with Llano until July... I'm looking to buy a laptop soon and *was* looking at an i3 or i5 based laptop. I might sit tight now and wait, since AMD are bound to be cheaper anyway.

    Very good news for laptops and mainstream/budget pcs, which is where the money is at. I think they've hit the nail on the hid by aiming to get a "good experience".

    Of course the benefits go out the window when you throw in a discreet card but it will certainly open up casual gaming for laptops.

    "I'm pretty impressed, even allowing for the AMD-biased aspect of things."

    Agreed, but what i am really inetersted in is the dual-core SKU sporting what i believe is termed the "beavercreek" GPU.

    If this has a 25W TDP then it promises to be an awesome APU for a slimline 12" chassis.

    Re: News - Demo shows AMD mobile Llano APU bettering Intel's Sandy Bridge chip

    Theres something on another website about chipset problems hence delaying it so they can't show it at CeBit - but apparantly the chipset issues is not going to delay launch in June as originally planned.

    Take it with a pinch of salt as they may just be speculating about why its not at CeBit.....

    What could make this awesome would be a resurrection of hybrid crossfirex, except you don't plug any screens into your discreet graphics card so it's totally powered down when not needed, but available when needed.

    Definitely interesting potential for Hybrid crossfire!

    Oh wish they'd sort it out soon! I'm looking to do a build May/June time but want to wait for Bulldozer. I'm not prepared to wait if the release slips back to Q4 2011...

    IS there even any hope that it will topple Sandy-Bridge pound for pound?

    I REAAALLY hope so!

    The Bulldozer release schedule is still the same as before which is Q2 2011. OTH,Llano has been pushed from Q3 2011 to Q2 2011.
