Advanced Micro Devices will disclose details about its next-generation low-power x86 processing core at Hot Chips conference in late August. The new code-named Jaguar processing cores will power AMD's Fusion solutions for low-power, low-cost notebooks and netbooks as well as for devices like media tablets.

It is expected that Jaguar-powered Fusion accelerated processing units will sport improved performance thanks to higher IPC (instructions per clock), enhancements related to HSA (heterogeneous system architecture) and simultaneous operation of x86 and stream processing cores. Besides, the new Fusion APUs will integrate input/output controller, which will allow to make personal computers using just one highly-integrated system-on-chip.

AMD's Jaguar cores will be utilized inside code-named Kabini and Temash accelerated processing units and will be implemented using 28nm process technology. During the show, AMD is likely to disclose whether the aforementioned Jaguar-based APUs will be made at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company or Globalfoundries.

For low-cost/low-power systems AMD is developing code-named Kabini accelerated processing units, which features two or four Jaguar x86 cores as well as GCN graphics processing engine. For tablets and similar ultra low power applications, AMD preps APU known as Temash, which will also use Jaguar x86 core(s) and low-power graphics adapter.

Globalfoundries plans to initiate volume production of chips using 28nm process tech with HKMG technology in December, 2012, at its Fab 8 in New York, USA. TSMC is already making 28nm/HKMG chips, but the volumes are not very large and it cannot meet demand for existing products.

Hot Chips symposium will take place in The Flint Center for the Performing Arts, in Cupertino, Californina, on August 27-29, 2012.
