Specifics on AMD's mobile Neo processor

Not quite what it seems

| CPUs, Chipsets & SoCs News | Posted: Jan 30, 2009 10:44 am

The folks at Fudzilla have shared out some specifics of AMD's Neo CPU which the company plans to use to compete with Atom in the netbook/ultra-thin notebook market.

 

Specifics on AMD's mobile Neo processor

 

Neo is in fact AMD's official name of the processor, but it's been discovered the chip hasn't been built from the ground up; it's apparently nothing more than a single core Lima (Athlon K8) processor that's been re-branded specifically to suit the ultra mobile market.

 

As such, the 1600MHz processor with 512KB of cache still consumes a fair whack of power at around 15W, whilst Intel's Atom looks significantly better in this (highly important) regard with a TDP of just 2.4W.

 

More details can be found here.
