Spy shots of AMD's 8W Atom rival

Posted on Monday, June 30 2008 @ 23:19:45 CEST by

X-bit Labs got their hands on some spy shots of AMD's upcoming processor for low-power systems.
Based on “spy-shot” pictures of a 3.5” mainboard sent to X-bit labs, initially AMD’s 8W chips based on K8 micro-architecture in ball-grid array (BGA) packaging will be available for small form-factor industrial PCs, where Intel Pentium M and Intel Atom chips are already present alongside with relatively outdated AMD Geode microprocessors.

The K8 BGA microprocessors from AMD will have thermal design power of 8W, whereas the AMD M690E + SB600 chipset will have thermal design power of 8W + 2W~3W. Therefore, the whole system will have thermal design power of just about 20W, which is quite similar to a combination of Intel Atom N-series processor (2.5 – 4W TDP) and Intel 945GC chipset (15.2W – 22.2W).
