Taiwanese PC makers say demand for Ultra-Mobile PCs (UMPCs) will depend on whether technical issues like excessive power consumption can be resolved. They also hint AMD may become involved in this potential market.
AMD’s current Turion 64 and Geode processor offerings, which have been adopted set-top box (STB) and portable media player (PMP) providers, would also be suitable solutions for UMPCs, sources at Taiwan PC manufacturers found. A June 2005 benchmark report by Toms Hardware Guide stated that the Intel system uses 13% more power than AMD.
