Llano desktop CPUs to launch on June 30
Fudzilla reported today that desktop Llano microprocessors will be launched on Thursday, June 30 (see correction below). Last weekend, first ASUS F1A75-M PRO, F1A75-V PRO, Gigabyte GA-A75M-UD2H and GA-A75-UD4H socket FM1 mainboards appeared in stock of smaller internet stores. The prices are starting from about $110 for ASUS F1A75-M PRO and Gigabyte GA-A75M-UD2H micro-ATX boards, and up to $125 - $130 for ASUS F1A75-V PRO and GA-A75-UD4H ATX motherboards. The desktop Llano processors are not available for sale in US yet, although two of them, A6-3650 and A8-3850, can be pre-ordered for $120+ and $142+, respectively.
The full line-up of Llano APUs, which will be available in a few days, consists of seven models from A4-, A6- and A8-Series. The specifications on these models were disclosed earlier this month by OCW (ocworkbench.com). The new model numbers for Llano processors have series name as a prefix, following by four digit number. As a result, the model numbers look short, albeit confusing. As an example, guessing that the A4-Series APUs have two cores, or whether specific A6-Series model has three or four cores, is impossible without knowing the details on these families and model numbers. Speaking of the details, we listed them in the table below:
As you can see, there will be a variety of CPUs with and without Turbo core feature, with 65 Watt and 100 Watt Thermal Design Power, and with three different on-chip graphics processing units. The model numbers, and information about on-chip GPUs, already surfaced on AMD website.
Correction (June 29): The processors will be available starting from July 3rd. June 30 is, apparently, the date when NDA and press embargo will be lifted. Also, only two models, A6-3650 and A8-3850, will be sold at first.
