AMD Fusion C-60 APU with Turbo Core
Not far off the new solutions with the AMD Fusion C-60 with full support for that Turbo Core. AMD is preparing to recommend its new Fusion technology hardware platforms on Series C-60 APU and, due to prerogatives offered by Turbo Core, it’s conceivable to achieve good values? performance. In effects with Turbo Core, you can acquire a frequency worth of 1.3 GHz compared to its reference value, or 1 GHz, while the GPU section. You can reach a value of 400 MHz.
After I wrote concerning the AOD255 and its new dual-core Intel Atom N550 processor, I pointed out that single-threaded applications will not benefit and may perform worse than they are doing on the higher clocked single-core N455. I further mentioned this really is still a welcome trade-off, and speculated that the advanced feature like Turbo Boost, which offsets this disadvantage, rarely is in putting into low-cost processors like the Intel Atom.
While the theoretical numbers are wonderful, with an increase of 33% for that CPU and 44% for the GPU, I’m curious how this plays out in practice. Especially during tasks that are both CPU and GPU intensive. Does the AMD Fusion C-60 “trade” TDP between CPU and GPU? What’s certain is the fact that one core can clock to maximum frequency once the other is idle. This AMD Fusion C-60 one thing is advantageous enough already, but questions regarding how this works in combination with the GPU are still to be answered.
According to rumors on the net, the new solutions from AMD, AMD Fusion C-60 APU, will be readily available for the 3rd quarter of 2011. AMD must gain ground on Intel products and plans, of course, take advantage of Intel’s latest misstep.
