AMD Turion Ultra launches at Computex

TG Daily claims AMD will roll out the Puma platform at Computex. This platform will feature the Turion Ultra "Griffin" processor, the RS780M chipset, the Mobility Radeon 3200 GPU and WiFi chips.
Puma will show up in all major notebook form factors (12.1”, 13.3”, 15.4” and 17") and will be on display with ATI Mobility Radeon 3450, 3650 and 3850 discrete graphics chips. SSDs will be available as an option, albeit in a very limited fashion: Puma will aim for the volume business and consumer markets and SSD simply are still “too expensive” for these segments. That scenario should change with the arrival of AMD’s 2009 Shrike mobile platform (better known for its Fusion processor), which is expected to see a greater adoption of SSD devices.

At this time, we have no information whether Puma and its Turion Ultra will be available in volume from day one.
