AMD begins shipping Brazos, announces Bulldozer-based APUs
Hot on the heels of that Brazos hands-on demo we were treated to last week, AMD shared some fresh, juicy details about its upcoming products at this morning's Financial Analyst Day presentation.
First, while we're on the subject of Brazos, AMD said the first Zacate and Ontario accelerated processing units (APUs) began shipping from its assembly facility in Singapore early this morning. The first retail systems based on them will be out "in the January time frame." AMD also put an end to the rumors about delays to its Llano APU, saying volume production will begin in the second quarter of 2011 and shipments will kick off by the middle of the year. So much for those Taiwanese sources, huh? Finally, it was revealed that the first processors based on AMD's new, high-end Bulldozer architecture are on track to ship for revenue next summer.
Not content to tease the new products with words and PowerPoint slides, AMD treated attendees to live demonstrations of Brazos, Llano, and (Bulldozer-based) Zambezi systems. The demos have, happily, made it up onto YouTube... TechReport
