You still have a few months of waiting before you will be able to get hold of AMD’s new CPUs but there will be 11 new processors by the end of the year. A mix of Llano and Zacate APUs will be released along with notebooks by a variety of vendors, based on the new quad core APU with an HD 6550 onboard. DigiTimes didn’t have a break down of the exact models and speeds that are coming but you can be sure that more information will be posted once it is released by AMD.
AMD will launch six Llano-series APUs for desktops in third-quarter 2011 and another five models in the fourth, in an apparent effort to take on Intel’s Sandy Bridge CPUs, according to industry sources.
AMD will unveil its 32nm A-series Llano APUs at Computex Taipei 2011 to be held in June and the models to be launched in the third quarter will include A8-3550 and A6-3450, while the five models to be available in the fourth quarter will include A8-3560 and A4-3360.
Additionally, AMD will also release three E-series (Zacate) APUs, including dual-core E-300, E-450 and E2-3250, in the third quarter.
AMD has also announced that a total of 24 notebooks based on its C- and E-series APU have been rolled out by ODMs, including Clevo, Coby, Compal Electronics, Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS), Hasee, Micro-Star International (MSI) and Shuttle, and are available in the market now."
