Intel's upcoming (and delayed) Centrino 2 isn't the only mobile platform in town. At Computex, AMD will be showing off its Puma platform, which is made up of a Turion Ultra CPU (aka Griffin), a mobile version of the 780G chipset and Mobility Radeon 3200 integrated graphics (yay synergy). AMD's mostly targeting "volume business and consumer markets," so it's aiming a bit lower than Centrino 2. Which seems to match how it performs in comparison, unfortunately. Still it's good AMD's finally getting it out the door, fighting the good fight. [TG Daily]
If you call getting your butt creamed in every way 'fighting the good fight', then I suppose AMD is doing exactly that. Maybe they could start a campaign 'The Other Chip Company'. Of course, then they would probably be confused for Frito Lay. I think Frito Lay's chips run faster than AMD these days.
Don't give up AMD. We still love you, even if we keep buying Intel.
