Posted on Wednesday, Aug 30 2006 @ 13:18 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
AMD and ATI will jointly launch a new notebook platform codenamed Yokohama in the foruth quarter of this year. The new platform uses AMD's Turion 64 X2 processors and some of ATI's future chipsets like the RS690M, RS690DC and RS790M.
Targeted to compete with Intel's Napa Refresh platform, the Yokohama platform may also include WLAN chipsets from Broadcom, Atheros Communications or Airgo Networks, the sources added.

Using ATI's chipset solutions, AMD will likely build its own Centrino-like platform for high-performance laptops, the sources noted.
