AMD shipped a million Llano APUs in Q2 two weeks before launch

/ 8 years ago

AMD managed to ship a million Llano chips in Q2, two weeks ahead of the official launch.

During a conference call, interim CEO Thomas Seifert said demand for Llano was strong. “We expect Llano ramp to outpace the Brazos ramps,” he added.

AMD expects Llano processors to make up as much as 50% of its total CPU shipments by the end of the year. In Q1 of 2012 that Llano share even rise to nearer 60%.

In general, AMD did get a lot of traction with its first Llano parts, the reviews were positive and people realised they could be a viable alternative to Intel processors in value orientated markets. However, the cheapest Llano SKUs are still a few weeks away from launch and these are expected to ship in very large volumes.

As the Phenoms and Athlons are slowly phased out the transition to the new architecture will pick up.
