Fusion Pushed back to 2001

 

Sunnyvale (CA) - In a rather unexpected announcement, AMD today said that it shelved the development of its 2010 Fusion with 45 nm Shrike core and decided to introduce the Fusion concept with the 2011 Llano CPU and a 32 nm core. AMD also announced five new processors including a quad-core notebook CPU and the "Orochi" desktop processor with "more than" four Bulldozer cores.

 

The presentation of AMD senior vice president Randy Allen and the company's Financial Analyst Day today was centered around the manufacturer's belief that "must win in the mainstream and value segments" as well as in "consumer and small and medium business segments." Of course there was a lot of focus on today's launch of the 45 nm Shanghai Opteron processor and Allen used the opportunity to side swipe Intel with the note that this is the "best server processor on the planet" (as opposed to Intel's claim that Core i7 is the "fastest processor on the planet"), but the big news certainly came out of AMD's desktop and mobile product roadmap.
