The Sabine Platform (with Llano APU)

Moving up the ladder for more performance, the Sabine platform is targeted at the performance-mainstream crowd who dabbles in more content creation activities and would like to have close to mid-tier discrete GPU performance. Answered by the Llano APU that will come in Q2 2011 (a quarter after the Zacate and Ontario), its CPU core is actually a derivative of the existing Athlon II processors and will be available in both dual and quad-core variants. The GPU portion is better equipped, possibly a Redwood-variant graphics engine (essentially a Radeon HD 5500 / 5600 series class). This would be really interesting to benchmark when it does hit the market.
