With each new generation of mobile AMD architecture chosen closer to the main competitor, not that all holding our breath, waiting for release platform AMD Trinity, but AMD has promised to improve the performance by clicking on the architecture of Piledriver, increase the power of graphics, and finally to optimize energy consumption. Moreover, even threatened to ultra-thin notebooks based on the Trinity, and the new architecture has officially announced.
We all admire the brightest people industry, those who can predict the future of electronic technology and the IT market, but very seldom think that it is difficult to be a visionary, but even harder to be. It is not enough to provide perspective and make corresponding plans, these plans have yet to implement, so - go against the flow, do not that make all the others, not to look at the opinions of "authorities", with their usual skepticism and spell out the incorrectness of the chosen path. Even in our fast-growing industry for years sometimes have to wait for the moment when history will judge all the same, but it seems the only possible path to a truly great success.
AMD Fusion Concept was announced 6 years ago - now back in 2006, the first production product in the framework of this concept appeared only three years later - in 2009 and, frankly, Brazos at flowering time the market of netbooks and laptops is not that looked pale, but very unconvincing. A full-fledged mobile processors it is inferior to the performance standard solutions at the Intel Atom - energy efficiency, a relatively powerful integrated graphics core found unclaimed - the ones who need to bolshaya graphics performance, preferred or NVIDIA Ion, or laptops with extra graphics controller.
Partly, perhaps surprisingly, promotion AMD Fusion indirectly helped company Intel, has paid for the "removal» NVIDIA Ion with a full-fledged, perhaps because of the changed background a new generation of Fusion - Llano - looked more interesting. However, it must be admitted that the characteristics of this solution were noticeably better than its predecessor - computers based on it is no longer compete with low-power netbooks and laptops with the mid-level, as a result, the platform is not won an all too positive assessments from the press, nevertheless took a significant share of the sales.
