AMD Llano Fusion Chip Slaughters Intel Sandy Bridge

Benchmarks show that AMD's notebook Llano chips frag Intel's i7-2600K into pieces. The score was 3300 to 2124 in AMD's favor.

If you compare the Llano to Intel's i5-2500, the green team is more than 2x faster.

Intel has no future, AMD just started Fusion

The future is Vision technology. Few cared about E350's Bobcat CPU, the selling point is its GPGPU which has 5x more compute power than the CPU.

The Llano Fusion products will have 20x of the compute power of the top end Intel CPU. Llano has 400 stream processors. It can encode videos 20x faster than Intel. It is called massively parallel personal computing.

It seems Intel missed the boat again. Intel is stuck with obsolete, second class graphics at which Jen-Hsun Huang of Nvidia looked down with utmost contempt. And Intel has no place to buy first-class technologies. The only possible source is Nvidia, and Jen-Hsun wouldn't sell unless he owns Intel, not to mention regulatory obstacles.

The only hope for Intel is to become an ARM FAB.

AMD Bulldozer frags Sandy Bridge and everything Intel

According to information leaked by Gigabyte, AMD's Bulldozer will frag Intel's fastest processors. On SuperPI 1M, the 2.8GHz Bulldozer takes 7.8 sec, SuperPI 32M, Bulldozer finishes in 7min 22 sec (or 442 sec).

The running times for Intel CPUs can be found here. Intel's fastest CPU takes 563.408 seconds for SuperPI 32M.

In other words, the Bulldozer is 27% faster than Intel's fastest on the SuperPI benchmark, which is traditionally Intel's stronghold.
