We've been quite impressed with the kinds of systems that have adopted Ontario, the 9W variant of AMD's first accelerated processing unit design. Now, AMD is reportedly cooking up a new Ontario part with a little extra oomph.
The guys at Macles have dug up specifications for an upcoming AMD C-60 processor, which they say is due out next quarter. This processor is said to resemble the existing C-50 in almost every way, featuring two cores, a 1GHz base clock speed, 1MB of L2 cache, a 276MHz GPU clock speed, and a 9W thermal envelope. However, Turbo Core functionality will help push the C-60's CPU component up to 1.33GHz and its GPU to 400MHz.
AMD currently includes Turbo Core technology, an analog to Intel's Turbo Boost, in its Phenom II X6 processors, but I'm not aware of any mobile offerings that have it yet. The C-60 would be an interesting first—especially since the alleged Turbo specs aren't all that far off the base speeds of AMD's E-240 processor, a more power-hungry 16W APU.
