Overheard: AMD Deccan platform, Wichita and Krishna APUs detailed

AMD Deccan platform, Wichita and Krishna APUs detailed

The company's future platform will be called "Deccan", comprising processors codenamed "Wichita" and "Krishna" targeting the ULV desktop and netbook markets, respectively. With the next generation, AMD is looking to take advantage of the 28nm manufacturing process to put four x86-64 cores based on the Bobcat architecture on a single piece of silicon, with an integrated memory controller and AMD Radeon discrete-class graphics.

 

The Wichita and Krishna are completely single-chip. The FCH (Fusion Controller Hub) has been completely fused into the APU silicon. Motherboards and notebook logic boards will have just one big chip, with no "chipset" of any form. This makes AMD's Wichita and Krishna the industry's very first true x86-based consumer SoC (system on chip).
