May 12, 2010 at 12:55 pm

AMD NileAMD has released some more details on its ultrathin ‘Nile’ platform range of processors. We have attached the relevant slides after the break, but basically the new platform will see a 22 percent performance increase and 36 percent increase in 3DMark06 scores compared to the older Congo platform.

Battery life is expected to be around the 4-8 hours mark. Quite a wide range, but 4 hours is active and 8 hours is “resting”. Other features includes DDR3 support, 5.1 surround sound, HDMI out and DX11 support (DirectX 10.1 for HD 4200). Click through for the slides.

    Define exactly what “resting” is…technically a notebook/netbook is always active!

    Its nice to see AMD finally starting to get into the game…long time coming I say but I can’t help but feel 2ghz dual core would have been the sweet spot!…Ah well

    4 – 8 hours isn’t very encouraging AT ALL but AMD chips are better than Intel’s on most counts as per experts. Can’t wait for the first review, esp. that of dual core.


  1. AMD Nile is here, with better performance and autonomy
