AMD’s Sub-25W Yukon platform announced.

Just shown at the AMD 2008 Financial Analyst day are a few slides and details about the new mobile computing platform known as Yukon. It’s due for release in the first half of 2009 and will use a dual-core processor called Conesus.


From the diagrams and the presentation being given as I write, I get the feeling that AMD are not aiming at the low-end of the netbook market but more at a fully-capable ultra portable notebook market. I guess we’re talking Windows-7 capable ultraportables with good graphics capabilities very much like the new Dual-Core Turion-based, Raon Everun Note I’ve got here and have just benchmarked at twice the processing power of an Intel netbook!
