AMD replaces competing mobile graphics solution in new entry-level notebook systems designed for everyday computing needs
SUNNYVALE, Calif. --9/8/2009
- AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced that Clevo, a global notebook manufacturer based in Taiwan, is now providing notebooks powered by AMD platform technology. Combining ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 4570 graphics, the AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 processor and the AMD M690G chipset, these new entry-level notebooks deliver advanced performance and mobility benefits.
- The new Clevo notebooks deliver the multi-tasking performance and graphics power people need when enjoying 3D applications like maps, movies, online videos, digital photos, video games, music and TV programs at home or on the go.
- Continuing its long-standing technology partnership with Clevo, AMD focused on providing a highly differentiated solution that maps back to the top computing priorities. These include superior graphics and video capabilities and larger screen options than what is typically offered in similarly-priced netbook solutions for emerging mobile markets such as Brazil or Taiwan.
