AMD Fusion is the next-generation microprocessor design, combining general processor execution and 3D geometry processing into a single package. The AMD Fusion APU provides software developers, the power to unleash their imaginations by creating rich applications with no compromise on the performance factor.
In an announcement, AMD announced the formal introduction of the chips for the Brazos Platform, which consists of two lines of chips, tagged as the E-Series and the C-Series. The AMD Fusion APU design delivers an amazing experience, designed to provide advantages in power and design simplicity compared to other multi-chip solutions.
The E-Series, tagged as “Zacate” comprises a dual core 1.6 GHz version called the E-350, and a single core 1.5 GHz version called the E-240. The AMD chips are designed to work in 18 watts of power, aimed at powering notebooks, all-in-one systems as well as small-form-factor desktops.
Secondly, the C-Series known as “Ontario” comes packed with a dual-core 1.0 GHz version called the C-50 and a single-core 1.2 GHz version called the C-30, aimed at the netbook market designed to work on 9 watts power.
According to the chip maker, the new systems with the E-350 can last up to 11 hours when idle, or 4.5 hours when active. The Zacate version delivers a 1080p video at 20 frames per second, with the performance quite considerable from AMD’s end compare to netbooks powered by the Intel processor.
