John Taylor, director of product and strategic marketing at AMD's Graphics Products Group, claims the upcoming Puma notebook platform has around 100 design wins.
"That's twice as many designs as we had at the launch of our last mobile platform," said John Taylor, director of product and strategic marketing at AMD's Graphics Products Group, speaking at a news conference in Singapore.

AMD plans to launch its Puma laptop platform during the Computex trade show in June, where many of the upcoming laptops based on the chips are expected to be on display. Pairing greater power efficiency with improved graphics, Puma is based on AMD's upcoming Turion X2 Ultra processor, previously known by the code name Griffin.

Puma also includes a chipset with integrated graphics and an ATI Radeon HD3400 discrete graphics chip. Wireless connectivity is provided by a third-party chipset with support for 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g and 802.11n Wi-Fi networking.
