Soon AMD will start shipping Brazos and right after that the company will start internal testing of Deccan, a next-generation platform consisting of its Krishna APU and Yuba chipset. Deccan is expected to start sampling in Q2 2011 and mass shipments are expected by the end of 2011.
Interestingly, the article also mentions that Acer plans to use the Brazos platform for a tablet.
AMD is set to announce its Brazos platform, a combination of the company's Ontario APU and Hudson chipset, at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2011. The company has already prepared its next-generation platform codenamed Deccan, which consists of its Krishna APU and Yuba chipset, according to sources from PC players.
Although AMD originally did not have strong interest in the netbook market, the company has recently started changing its attitude and its new Brazos platform has already received orders from Micro-Star International (MSI) for its netbook, and Acer for its tablet PC, the sources added.
