     Fri, Feb 11 2011 | 9:33P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Futurelooks concludes it`s look at the Bulldozer and uncovers what it does well (and what it doesn`t) ... *The AMD FX-8150 Bulldozer CPU and Scorpius (FX) Platform Reviewed ? Part Two* It is time to poke even deeper into AMD?s latest flagship processor, the FX-8150. We covered a lot of ground in Part 1 with our first impressions of the FX-8150 and the pieces that make up the new Scorpius Platform. In Part 2, we are going to see if you can narrow down some of the issue(s) highlighted in our first look, including a closer look at the spotty performance observed in the first piece. We are also going to turn the FX-8150 dial all the way up to eleven to see what kind of potential this new chip has. This is going to be a roller coaster ride of ups and downs so you might want to strap in tight. * * *"

AMD Fusion - The Future in APUs
     Fri, Feb 11 2011 | 12:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"AMD’s Fusion technology aims to solve both the need for ultra low power consumption and muscular computing mobile systems. The current IGP-based platforms are just simply not efficient enough to deliver the graphics performance and battery life that modern mobile computing requires. Please read HiTechLegion’s previous articles on Fusion for a more detailed look on this technology. The first two of AMD’s Fusion APUs are designed for the notebook and Netbook markets. “Zacate” is an 18W mainstream APU primarily designed for notebook and all-in-one desktop use. AMD will also have the 9W “Ontario” APU that can deliver HD graphics to netbooks and other small-form factor computing solutions. Ontario is projected to outperform all current netbook’s graphics performance by as much as 10 times."
