Reviews generally concluded that Llano provides budget shoppers unparalleled bang for their buck.  (Source: Anandtech)

Llano packs a mean GPU punch, besting Intel's comparable core by as much as 4x times the framerates in some games  (Source: Anandtech)

A Llano rig retails for about $350, and offers solid overclockability.  (Source: Tweak Town)
While not as strong in CPU performance and memory, most reviews conclude AMD gives a better overall performance

Negative, this is not the fruit, this is no more than the first bud. I think the next iteration will be doubly impressive. Once they've really cleaned up the implementation regarding memory bandwidth to the GPU, replace the STARS cores with Bulldozer cores, and sort out the clockspeed situation... it will be disgusting. And then later on at 28nm? Jeebus!

Interesting times, eh?

Is Trinity or whatever comes after it even planned for 28nm or just 22nm ? I was under the impression that it is only Brazos's successor that will get 28nm treatment (from 40nm of today) while more powerful Llano successors will go the 32nm -> 22nm route.

Ah you are correct, Ontario/Zacate successors Krishna/Wichita (2core/4core) will be at 28nm. Trinity (Bulldozer based Llano successor) will be at the same 32nm as Llano and Zambezi. Komodo will be the Zambezi successor, and I am unsure what fabrication process it will use. I hope they can make the jump to 22nm by then (2012).
