AMD's low-cost PC processor will be based on the company's previous-generation K8 architecture and will support 64-bit instructions. The CPUs will be a single-core model with a frequency of 1.2GHz and will be manufactured on the company's 65nm process.
AMD expects its low-cost PC processor to be priced slightly lower than Intel's Atom and has started negotiating with Micro-Star International (MSI), Hewlett-Packard (HP), Acer and vendors in China to win orders.
