AMD's Atom to go after thin notebooks

Yukon in 1H 2009


We have
already told you that AMD has a new product codenamed Conesus, a dual-core K8 based chip that should counter Intel's Atom. The product comes out in 2009 and it is 65nm based but despite purely atom market, it will also go after thin notebooks.

We’ve learned that there should be design wins bigger than 10 inch and you can expect to see some very thin 15 and 16 inch notebooks based on this platform.

The platform is codenamed Yukon and it is scheduled for the first half of 2009. AMD promises sub-25W TDPs for both chipset and CPU and more important this “sleek platform” should deliver a full PC experience.

We definitely expect a dual-core Atom in next generation netbook in 1H 2009, as a dual-core would make Intel's odds for the future better and it doesn’t want to lose too much of this market to AMD.
