AMD AMD Intros New Notebook Platform with 45nm CPUs

The tiger is out of its cage.

AMD has pulled the curtain off a new mainstream notebook platform, which it code-named Tigris and now stamps with the Vision Technology badge. This platform brings with it eight processors based on 45-nm process technology—AMD's first in the mobile space—alongside a new RS880M integrated graphics chipset.

AMD differentiates these CPUs in other, less obvious ways. According to the 2009 AMD Mainstream Notebook Platform page on the company's website, the Athlon II and Sempron parts have half-width (64-bit) floating-point units and lower HyperTransport interface speeds (3.2GT/s instead of 3.6GT/s). Unless we're mistaken, though, all eight chips are derived from the same 45-nm Caspian silicon.

Global availability of notebooks based on this platform should "coincide with the forthcoming release of the Microsoft Windows 7 Operating System." (Windows 7 will launch on October 22.) AMD expects over 50 designs, and it adds that some of them have already been available in "certain Asian countries" since September 2.
