AMD A8-3850 Llano APU
A few months ago, AMD released their first venture in "Fusion" technology with the release of the "E" and "C" series APU’s (Accelerated Processing Unit). AMD has restructured their business plan and Phase Two has now arrived. Today, the next step in AMD’s succession is the release of the "A" series APU’s with discrete-class graphics capabilities internally known as Llano. On the table is a highly boasted processor called the “A8-3850” and codenamed “LYNX” paired with the Gigabyte A75M-UD2H and today we will take an in-depth look at what this efficient and powerful APU brings to the mainstream desktop market.
AMD’s business plan is positioned for a strong growth of the company. The "E" series APU release targets not only the growing HTPC(Home Theater Personal Computer) but also the budget notebook market. The "E" series proved to be very efficient and works well with entry level but does not pack a serious punch for those looking for a little more and the birth of the "A" series brings a chronological next step with a bridge between Bulldozer.
Let’s see how things shake out.
