AMD Jumps On Low-Cost Wagon
"With ULCPC's quickly gaining in popularity, AMD has finally gotten to work on their own CPU offering"
Published: 24th June 2008 | Source: DigiTimes |
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.
AMD expects its low-cost PC processor to be priced slightly lower than Intel's Atom and has started negotiating with Micro-Star International (MSI), Hewlett-Packard (HP), Acer and vendors in China to win orders.
AMD declined the opportunity to respond to this report saying it cannot comment on unannounced products.
Will AMD's late offering be able to gain a hold in the low-cost PC market?
