At the recent Q2 2011 Earnings report AMD stated that like Brazos, the Llano platform for both desktop and mobile are being embraced rather well by the Tier 1 OEMs such as HP, Lenovo, and the smaller shops like CyberPowerPC. It was reported by Robert Seifert, Acting CEO and CFO, that in the last quarter AMD shipped more than one million A-Series chips. Mr Seifert also reported that over six million Brazos platform chips have gone out since January of this year.
It was also reported that the ramp for Llano A-Series chips would be more aggressive than that of the Brazos C- and E-Series chips. AMD has already given notice that AM3 chips are being phased out brand name and all and that by Q2 2012 they will almost 100% A-Series, C-Series and FX-Series across all product lines.
Every major online retailer is already selling A-Series chips and systems so the rumors of ramp issues can now be laid to rest. Seifert also said that the ramp is actually progressing faster than expected most likely due to the demand for these inexpensive yet powerful chips. In related news AMD also admits that A-Series chips will start to make a dent in its sales of low end GPUs, but because these chips are so inexpensive, it will be much easier to sell a discrete GPU with the system, especially gamers on a budget.
