AMD: Two new Neo CPUs for ultra thin notebooks announced
Two new dual-core processors of the Neo family extend AMD's product array for ultra thin notebooks.
AMD has announced two new processors of the Neo family for so-called Embedded Systems. The two new dual-core CPUs, both of which have a TDP of only 18 watt, are called Athlon Neo X2 and Turion Neo X2. Their frequencies are set to 1.5 respectively 1.6 GHz - both CPUs are produced in a 65 nanometer architecture.
Those BGA format processors are directly soldered onto the motherboard and thus save costs as well as some millimeters of height, what makes them perfect for use in ultra thin notebooks. AMD already named IEI and IBase as customers. HP, who already announced the two devices for the Pavilion DV2Z series, has not been noted up to now. Additional details like prices, size and amount of cache have not been revealed by AMD yet. For more information see the AMD website.
