AMD CPU for Netbooks Coming by the End of 2008  

Posted by Laptop Tips

DigiTimes reports that AMD has recently notified its partners it is developing a processor which will compete against Intel Atom and Via Nano CPUs in the low-cost PC market.

AMD’s new chips are expected to be launched by the end of 2008, while netbooks based on these CPUs will begin shipping in the first half of 2009, according to DigiTimes’ sources at PC makers.

“AMD’s low-cost PC processor will be based on the company’s previous-generation K8 architecture and will support 64-bit instructions. The CPUs will be a single-core model with a frequency of 1.2GHz and will be manufactured on the company’s 65nm process,” DigiTimes says adding that the company has started negotiating with MSI, HP, Acer and vendors in China to win orders.

The CPU is going to be priced slightly lower than the Intel Atom, reportedly.

Eeepcnews.de earlier published information on an 1GHz AMD processor, which is possibly designed for use in low-cost ultraportable laptops.
