For small, ultra-portable notebooks

 

Chipmaker AMD has released details of its new "Bobcat" chip which it hopes to introduce into the small, ultra-portable notebook market.

Corporate Vice President Randy Allen told analysts that wafer yields are running ahead of plan and manufacturing lines are producing high-speed, defect-free products.

Intel is planning a similar product called Silverthorne.
