    Top 10 List – Things You Might not Know about AMD Fusion APUs

    I don’t typically blog about AMD news, but couldn’t help myself today because today represents a new chapter in the Fusion era of computing. We have updated our award-winning (see No. 9 below) C- and E-Series Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) for ultrathin and value notebooks, netbooks, all-in-ones and desktop PCs. This is good news for consumers looking for top of line features − including enhanced HD graphics capabilities, enhanced memory and improved battery life for mobile platforms − across the spectrum of PCs.
    But rather than just trumpet the news, I thought I’d use this opportunity to share what I’m calling the Fusion Top 10 list.
    1. Overall, AMD has experienced a 50 percent increase in total notebook design wins over the previous generation of AMD platforms. To date, AMD has secured more than 300 design wins (notebook, desktop, embedded) based on the AMD Fusion Family of APUs.
    2. We saw a 57% year-on-year increase in notebook design wins for our top OEM partners (HP, Dell, Lenovo, Acer, MSI, Toshiba, ASUS, Sony and Samsung).
    3. The AMD E-series Fusion APU-based Lenovo ThinkPad x120e was one of the top selling commercial notebooks among distributors targeting small and medium businesses, exceeding demand forecasts.
    4. HP, Acer, Lenovo, Toshiba, Samsung and ASUS all have Llano-based notebooks available and shipping today (though currently in North America only).
    5. The popular A-Series APU-based HP DV6 is widely available throughout North America, including online at Amazon.com and on the shelf at Best Buy alongside the Toshiba C770 and L750 notebooks.
    6. AMD has shipped nearly 12 million APUs, and sold more than five million of the popular C- and E-Series APUs in Q2 2011 alone.
    7. We launched the AMD Fusion Z-Series APU to enable the industry’s best video and graphics experience for tablets. We marked the completion of a top-to-bottom APU product stack for 2011 with the launch of the A-Series APU in notebook and desktop platforms in June 2011.
    8. 11 of the world’s top 12 notebook OEMs are shipping AMD Fusion APU-based products.
    9. AMD Family of APUs have won more than 35 industry awards (A-Series = 20 awards; C- & E-Series = 15 awards) for silicon innovation, APU performance and OEM designs using AMD Fusion APUs
    10. If you want the world’s most amazing graphics on your notebook (and who wouldn’t?), you need one powered by an AMD graphics processor.

    Are you taking part in the Fusion era of computing?

    1. So AMDs new line beats AMDs old line... Wow...
    2. Based on AMD technologies? Doesn't say.
    3. Well of course. Businesses favor cheap, disposable boxes.
    4. In addition to Intel and banana flavored products.
    5. Along side a number of Intel products. Blah blah. Say something meaningful.
    6. Which was a tiny 20% of the market share. Intel held onto 79% of the Q2 unit market share.
    7. I don't know **** about tablets. No comment.
    8. 11/12 huh? So there's 12 shipping Intel, and one of them that's still Intel-specific?
    9. Possibly. No argument.
    10. Wait.. this one is an obvious joke, right?

  3. The following user thanks Earthmonger For this above post:

    This was with "E" series APUs.......Now put in Llano and Bulldozer. Do the math.... 30-40% may not be out of the question
