Posted on Wednesday, May 12 2010 @ 22:58:30 CEST by


AMD announced it received 135 design wins for its new notebook platforms, the mainstream "Danube" will be featured in 109 laptops, while "Nile" will be present in 26 ultra-thin laptops. The Nile platform promises to deliver a battery life of up to 8 hours, it features a total of five processors, including three dual-core 15W models and two single-core models with a TDP of 9W and 12W. The mainstream Danube on the other hand introduces twelve mobile processors with single-, dual-, triple-, and quad-core models with TDPs ranging from 25W to 45W.
In 2009, 96 million people worldwide bought PCs for entertainment purposes. The AMD 2010 Mainstream Notebook Platform lets consumers enjoy their movies, music and games in stunning color and clarity, seamlessly connect with friends on social networks, and edit videos and photos. The 2010 Ultrathin Notebook Platform makes it possible for consumers to enjoy a full-featured PC experience, including HD playback, in sleek and affordable notebooks that can deliver up to eight hours of battery life. Examples of the benefits the platforms provide to consumers include the following:

* In testing with HQV 2.0, a VISION-based system with AMD integrated graphics achieved a video experience score almost 2x that of a comparable Intel-based system. Additionally, a VISION-based system with AMD discrete graphics scored 50% better than a comparable Intel-based system with Nvidia discrete graphics.
* Enjoy photos with greater color, clarity and definition by cleaning up photos up to 20 percent faster with Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 than competing mainstream notebooks.
* Transfer entertainment fast and convert DVDs to play on game consoles in up to 37 percent less time than a comparable competitive mainstream notebook.
* Experience up to 80 percent smoother gaming performance in Call of Duty® 4: Modern Warfare™, compared to a comparable competitive mainstream system.
