I'm hearing the sound of several commenters straining to defiend AMD. Face it guys, they are a year behind Intel fielding 32nm and more than a year fielding a combo x86/grpahics chip of ANY kind. It's a great company, but they are behind.

Sunny, Westmere currently has the graphics on separate 45 nm die but same package. Sandy Bridge is fully integrated 32 nm. But you make a good point about how to really do graphics processing.

Both Westmere and Llano have an x86 core and a graphics core in a single chip. But when I want graphics processing, I would prefer a bank of floating point SIMD/SPMD processors like what NVIDIA provides or IBM provides, not a single core within my CPU! http://sunnyeves.blogspot.com/

Before SandyBridge, Intel's Westmere is still half 32 nm half 45 nm. That counts as behind fully 32 nm Llano.

hmm. first of all, AMD's been doing glueless 8s machines for a good long while now. with istanbul's improved cache coherency, their performance is quite reasonable. and AMD has been talking about imminent volume for magny-cours (sooner than +3 months afaikt.)
