AMD chips faster than Atom, The BobCat.


AMD’s new 1.6GHz Zacate E350 chip is the first low power chip based on the company’s new Bobcat CPU core. It’s also the first APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) from AMD, which is a fancy way of saying it’s part of the AMD Fusion line of products which put the CPU and graphics onto a single chip. It is made for the mobile computing and low-end desktop markets, Zacate is the first APU in a transition period for AMD as we move into a world of CPU/GPU combinations.

 The CPU portion of the Zacate/Ontario core is based on the first new architecture to come from AMD since the introduction of the K7.  The "Bobcat" core is a low power, dual-issue, out-of-order architecture that puts an emphasis on power efficiency rather than just raw power and it shows with the dual-core version being offered in both 18w and 9w derivatives. 

Here are upcoming SKUs that will launch in early 2011:
  • Zacate (18w)
    • AMD E-350 with AMD Radeon HD 6310 Graphics 
      • 1.6 GHz dual-core

      • 1.0 GHz dual-core
      • 80 stream processors
    • AMD C-30 with HD 6250 Graphics
