Yahoo News reports AMD's next-generation of mobile processors are expected to be included in 109 mainstream notebook models in the coming months. This is one of the first times the company gains so much design wins in the laptop market.
People familiar with the matter who work for AMD said the company's latest microprocessors are expected to be included in 109 mainstream laptop models in the coming months, the company's best showing during the crucial back-to-school sales season. Last year, AMD's chips were available in 40 laptop models.
"This is the first time we've seen this much attention to our notebooks," the source said, referencing the company's laptop chips.
And while shifts in market share are yet to be seen, "typically more design wins dictates more sales," the source said, adding the company's offerings are growing steadily across the major PC manufacturers.
