MSI to make AMD Based X-Slim laptops

Yukon under the hood

An interesting rumor has sprung up over at Fudzilla. It seems that MSI might be looking to drop some AMD love under the hood of their X-Slim series.

 

In the smaller models you will still find Atom and Intel due to poor thermal properties of the Yukon but that does not mean you won't be able to get your AMD fix in a thin and light from MSI.

MSI to make AMD Based X-Slim laptops

 

It seems MSI is working on the X410 and X610, both Yukon based. Both should be available with AMD IGPs, as well as discrete HD 4330 graphics with 512MB of memory. However, you won't find AMD chips in smaller models, probably due to unfavorable thermals. At this point we're not sure about dual-core Congo CPUs either.

 

No release date has been set, and all we know is that AMD-based X-Slims were originally planned for launch later in the year, probably late Q3 or early Q4. As this timefaime is quite a long way off, things could change, so take this with a grain of salt.
