Brand new notebook strategy


AMD's next generation notebook platform, codenamed Puma, is almost ready. AMD will start talking about this before the end of February and the launch should be in the next few weeks.

The Griffin modified K8 marchitecture, made exclusively for mobile products, is currently awaiting the launch of the RS780M chipset with decent integrated graphics and DVI/HDMI and DisplayPort capability that can take care of two displays at the same time, as well as HDMI+HDCP and Audio.

The new AMD notebook platform supports the soon-to-be-launched SB700 Southbridge that can support 14 USB ports, six SATA ports, HD audio and PATA.

One of the secret weapons is NAND Flash support that will be known as Hyper Flash, and this memory is Ready Boost proven and it should speed up Vista, at least a bit.

We suspect a big CeBIT launch and announcement, but this is as yet to be confirmed.
