Amd\'s latest Fusion chip, Llano, apparently has a weakness
An article posted on ars technica by Jon Stokes states that this hybrid chip suffers from a lack of memory bandwith limiting it's performance. "Llano, AMD's second entry in its Fusion family of processors that combine a CPU and GPU on the same die, launched earlier this month to moderately positive reviews.

I dont think that will help much however if you can get the base clock to 133 then that should help.RIG:i7-3770k @4.6Ghz/ASUS P8Z77 Deluxe/GSkill DDR3-2400/2xHD7970/Vertex 4/SSonic Plat 1000/H100/HAF XB

if you look at the architecture, there isn't much you can do. the bottleneck comes from the bandwidth between the cpu and gpu on the die.The path to universal understanding starts here: Say what you mean, and mean what you say.

looks like memory speed does effect it
latency doesn't seem to have much effect tho

memory speed affects any CPU. the bottleneck referred to in that article is internal to the chip tho' and no external forces are going to relive it. O/Cing might seem to alleviate it, faster mem might hide it a bit, boosting the hypet transport might help the system go faster. but that bottleneck will still be there, and getting rid of it would make the system even faster in all the afore-mentioned cases.The path to universal understanding starts here: Say what you mean, and mean what you say.
