    Default Zacate APU, 2x Faster GPU Performance than Core i5

    The simple package is designed to make manufacturing as easy as possible. The relative lack of balls on the package seems to imply a single channel 64-bit DDR3 memory interface. Although AMD's 9W Ontario part clearly goes after Atom in the netbook space (and Bobcat's out-of-order architecture should ensure performance success), Zacate is going to go after the ~$500 mainstream notebook market. To prove its point AMD setup a Core i5 notebook and a Zacate test platform running City of Heroes at the same settings (1024 x 768, low quality):

    AMD throws down gauntlet, pits Zacate netbook chip against Intel's Core i5

    We knew AMD planned to upstage Intel in San Francisco this week, but we didn't realize just how far Chipzilla's rival would go -- the company's demonstrating the power of its new Zacate APU by having it trounce an Intel Core i5-520M in a graphical superhero showdown.
    Zacate is showing a lot of promise.
