Next week in San Francisco, AMD will unveil the first North America public demonstrations of its AMD Fusion Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) codenamed "Zacate," a new dual-core, 18-watt TDP processor containing discrete-level graphics capabilities on die and designed to dramatically improve the user's PC experience. Targeting value and mainstream notebooks and desktops, "Zacate" APU-based platforms bring many of the vivid digital computing experiences once reserved for high-end PCs into the opening price points of the mainstream segment.

AMD will conduct demonstrations of the experience consumers can expect to see early in 2011 from a broad range of mainstream notebook and desktop PCs based on the AMD Fusion APU codenamed "Zacate", including:
  • Full HD streaming online video, showcasing the versatility of the "Zacate" APU-based platform to handle the most demanding multimedia tasks
  • Immersive online gaming with high image-quality settings, demonstrating the DirectX 11-compliant "Zacate" APU-based platform
  • Preview of accelerated Internet browsing, showing how "Zacate" APU-based platforms support the future of GPU-enabled web browsing today and how these platforms perform side-by-side against currently available AMD- and Intel processor-based notebooks


The event will take place on Monday, September 13 through Wednesday, September 15, 2010, in San Francisco, CA, led by senior AMD executives and engineers responsible for AMD Fusion APUs.

Throughout the week of September 13, 2010, AMD executives will provide frequent blog posts at blogs.amd.com on the company's demonstrations as well as commentary on new developments in the CPU, GPU and APU markets. The first two updates cover the consumer PC market and the software developer ecosystem.

The 18W TDP version will be in ultra portables and net tops. The 8W is for netbooks and lower.

This is going to make Atom looks like a P3. Its going to be bad. The 18W should have basically a 5450 on die.

A gaming netbook? Dream on! I'll believe it when I see it, just like netbooks running 720p video smoothly.

Remember this?

That "low power Fusion APU" was an Ontario running that demo.

Sure it isn't 5770 but for an 8-18W part that will go against Atom, that's pretty impressive.

i think they should have stuck with "fusion accelerated processor" aka, FAP


these will finally allow us to have netbooks that can handle flash/H264 content properly. (ION makes a good effort, but thats more nettop, than netbook)

ZACATE is ATOM SMASHER!

Zacate is "ATOM SMASHER"

"An Atom 330+nVidia ion combo is able to beat the new CPUs both in terms of Windows 7 performance and 3DMark ’03 tests. In other words, the D510 and the D410 are ahead of their older brothers.

In terms of power consumption, the new Atoms pull in 33W and 26W at peak and idle, respectively. This is lesser than the already frugal 40-45W consumed by the Atom 330+945GC pair.

Smartphone processors don't exceed a couple of Watts. You definitely can't run a smartphone with a 18W/9W processor. A tablet, maybe.
it's even less than that, most smartphone have the processor less than ~400mw.

it's not a mandated limit, simply an "emergent" limit that has grown to become something like Moore's Law, whereby manufacturers have naturally come to settle on competing around this mark.

so no, there will be nothing above 0.5 watt let alone above 1watt in smartphones/PDA's.
