The Llano APU

Llano is AMDs answer to Intels Sandy Bridge processors. Of course Llano doesn't compete with the high end Sandy Bridge parts. There Intel would tear AMD aparat, performancewise. No, AMD wants to offer a very well priced product that comes with a balanced mix of processing power and graphics performance. Therefore AMDs biggest advantage is Llanos HD 6550D graphics unit, which is substantially faster than Intels HD 2000/3000 integrated circuitry.

Llanos processor cores are the further development of AMDs Phenom II and Athlon II. Overall AMD has been able to improve IPC (Instructions per Cycle) by more than six percent. Therfore the overworked architecture is capable of executing tasks in a more efficient way. Furthermore AMD also increased L2-Cache size, which is now 1 Megabyte. Regarding L1-Cache, there are 128 Kilobyte and for data and instructions you find 64 Kilobyte of cache in both cases.
