Acer considering AMD or VIA based nettop

Posted on Tuesday, November 11 2008 @ 00:00:28 CET by

Sources at OEM providers told DigiTimes that Acer is planning to release a low-power, low-cost nettop in early 2009. Acer hasn't decided yet on which processor it will use, the Intel Atom is an option but the firm is also considering to use chips from either AMD or VIA.
Since Acer expects Aspire one netbook shipments to surpass its goal of 12-13 million units in 2009, to prevent the nettop from impacting the company's Atom processor supply, Acer is considering using processors from VIA Technologies or AMD, but will still leave the Intel Atom as a possible option.

Acer also has three manufacturers in mind to make the nettop: Quanta Computer, Wistron and Micro-Star International (MSI). The company is expected to reach a decision in December. Acer's nettop will targeting both enterprise and consumer markets and be able to connect to a TV and LCD monitor.
