    Phoronix: AMD A8-3500M Llano Linux Benchmarks

    This morning there will be an introduction by Advanced Micro Devices of Llano, their next-generation Fusion APU. In this article are some launch-day Linux benchmarks of this newest 32nm accelerated processing unit using Ubuntu 11.04 with the A8-3500M part. This article is in continuation of our Radeon HD 6620G Linux benchmarks that were published at midnight.

    I guess these new processors are a lot more performant, but I think you missed the spot by comparing them with the E-350 and the Atom. The A8-3500M isn't targeted at the same market and I'm pretty sure this will be seen on power consumption and pricing.

    About power consumption monitoring, the Phoronix Test Suit could monitor power drawn from the batteries by watching /proc/acpi/battery on systems that support it.

    The Phoronix Test Suite already has full support for monitoring power consumption, among other sensors, but still can't handle it remotely when I can't yank the power cord across the Internet for the system I had access to and there wasn't any IPMI power switch or other means...

    LOL, totaly true! Some system can stop the battery from charging even plugged, maybe it could be a possibility.

    BTW, glad to see you're so on the edge with this product launch. KUTGW!

    A8-3500M [1]
    2011, quadcore, 35W TDP

    atom 330 [2]
    2008, dualcore, 8W TDP

    maybe an i3 or i5 would be a more fair comparison. performance per watt is pretty important. (unless intel and AMD have vastly different ways of measuring TDP).

    Once AMD sends out some hardware I'll worry more about a proper comparison.

    A8-3500M + Radeon HD 6620G = 35W
    Atom 330 + GeForce 9400M = 20W

    This is how they measure TDP
    "Maximum allowed power consumption"
    edit: I know Llano isn't Bulldozer, but TDP is assigned the same way for all their processors at AMD
