Asus releases AMD based netbook

Written by Nick Farell


EEEgods it is Brazos
ASUS has released the ASUS Eee PC 1215B netbook based on the new AMD Brazos platform.

It is one of the first to use both E- and C-Series Fusion APUs, which AMD claims provide enhanced PC experiences on small form factor without killing the battery. It means that the Eee PC 1215B gets DirectX 11 support integrated in to the chip for superior visuals.

So, the cheaper €399 version features AMD's C-50 dual core processor running at 1.0GHz, which is still slower than some smartphones. However it has a TDP of just 9W, which means that its battery life is rather good. Asus claims it will last 8.5 hours, if it is going downhill and the wind is behind it.

The pricier €449 SKU features the much more prolific E-350 APU, with a faster GPU and a 1.6GHz CPU clock. Both feature a USB 3.0 port, Bluetooth 3.0 and 802.11n Wi-Fi. The 1215B has already been listed in several shops and availability is expected shortly.

Just because it's 1Ghz doesn't mean it's slower, in ghz speed yes but in performance...well you're comparing a Mini Cooper to a Ferarri

I know why it has "EEE"; what I don't get is why "gods" is after it. I'm not stupid.

Does anyone know where a benchmark for c-50 can be found? It sounds slow, but maybe it's not so bad.

@Ken Fused:

I have been using an Acer Aspire One 522 c50 netbook fora month or so. Subjectively the CPU is much better than a Atom 270 (eeepc 1008ha), and the graphics are radically better: it plays video at 1280x720 smooth as silk, can run OpenGL & DirectX. Between 6 & 30 FPS in L4D at 1280x720.

A light-weight E-350 based netbook is simply too expensive. Talking abt performance, a N570 is not far from E-350 even in graphic, but I can get Intel N570 product from respected brand for $350-$450 in the form of netbook. For E-350, I can only get those in a bulky form at this price.

Sounds good, what kind of battery life are you getting?

Lets all donate 5$ and buy a Brazos notebook to mr.Farrell so he can stop whining all the time about AMD.
