AMD Puma Mobile Platform Launching Next Week, Fighting the Good Fight

Illustration for article titled AMD Puma Mobile Platform Launching Next Week, Fighting the Good Fight

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.
