Hardware Roundup: AMD Llano A8-3850 Edition

Category: CPU's
Posted: 04:06AM

If you haven't been following AMD closely over these past several months, then the announcement of the A8-3850 Llano APU may come as a surprise. Even more surprising, or more likely confusing, is the array of new terminology and monikers like 'APU', 'Fusion', 'Llano' and 'Lynx'. Fusion is AMD's marketing name for a new series of processors, or accelerated processing units (APU) that combine the CPU, GPU and other functions onto a single die. The latest AMD processors, or APUs, are codenamed Llano, and are based on the K10 core. The desktop platform is codenamed 'Lynx' and today we have a roundup of reviews on the first APU for the Lynx platform - the A8-3850. The new APU is manufactured using a 32nm SOI process and is a quad-core processor clocked at 2.9GHz. Also onboard the package is a Radeon HD 6550D GPU clocked at 600MHz. As mentioned, the Lynx platform comes with a new FM1 socket and A75 chipset. Take a moment to check out some of the reviews from around the Web using the links below.
