The first microprocessor with built-in graphics processing unit from Advanced Micro Devices will not only feature up to four general purpose x86 cores, but will have DirectX 11-compatible graphics engine and will also be made using 32nm process technology, which should ensure relatively low power consumption.
AMD’s first accelerated processing unit (APU), according to slides published by Expreview web-site that resemble AMD’s official notes, will be code-named Llano chip with “up to” four cores, DirectX 11 graphics processor, built-in DDR3 memory controller and so on. The new code-named Sabine platform processor infrastructure will feature FS1, BGA1 form-factors.
According to slides published by Expreview web-site, code-named Sabine platform with Llano APU will support 900-series chipset family, along with USB 3.0, USB, Serial ATA, etc.
