Second-gen Asus Eee PCs to debut without Intel Atom?

Posted on Wednesday, April 09 2008 @ 00:05:23 CEST by

DigiTimes claims Asus isn't going to wait for Intel's new Atom processor to launch their second-generation Eee PC systems in Taiwan. The site says Asus will use older-generation dual-core ULV chips from Intel so they can roll out their systems more than a month before Acer or HP can ship their Atom-based notebooks.
Intel will ship its Atom processors, developed for low-cost portable devices, in May, and notebook vendors, such as Acer and HP, will not ship their low-cost models until June, the sources said.

Asustek is expected to adopt the Atom processors in later versions of its Eee PCs. It originally planned to ship its second-generation Eee PCs also in June, the sources noted.

Asustek originally scheduled to launch its second-generation Eee PCs in mid-April in Hong Kong, where 80,000 of its first-generation models have been sold, the sources said. But it has revamped the launch plan to debut the new model in Taipei in the second half of this month, the sources added.
