Ontario joins Llano as the second Fusion product to begin sampling to
AMD’s customers. AMD’s GM, Rick Bergman, states that Ontario and the
Brazos platform is being demonstrated behind closed doors at Computex.
It is on schedule for release sometime in the first half of 2011.

Ontario is part of the Bobcat architecture and in many ways a miniature
version of Llano. Designed for tablets, netbooks and other
ultra-portable devices, featuring upto 2 CPU cores, a DDR3 memory controller and a DX11 IGP all on one die consuming upto 10W TDP. Certain Ontario variants can operate at under 1W – making it accessible to a wide variety of ultraportable devices.

There’s no doubt that Ontario is a promising product. Come 2011, gone be the days of severely underpowered (mostly Atom-based) netbooks and portable devices.

Ontario will be a 40nm bulk chip, much like modern ATI and Nvidia GPUs.
