AMD's Slides Showing That It's Faster Than Intel

Last week when AMD officially launched its new ultrathin mobile platform codename Congo and the mainstream notebook platform codename Tigris, the chipmaker also provided in its marketing material benchmark charts showing what it believes are key performance advantages over Intel's offerings.

While we won't be able to confirm any of these performance characteristics until we get our hands on test platforms, but if these numbers are true – particularly for the ultrathin category – then we're excited to see competition in the mobile segment.

  • Hmmmm... I can't help but think that these improvements could (largely at least) be explained by GPU acceleration. If the AMD chipsets are using ATI based integrated video chips and its being compared to Intel's chipsets using GMA type video chips then that would certainly explain the "Games" benchmarks and might also explain the encoding "Entertainment" benchmarks if they're using encoders that use GPU acceleration.

  • Which is why nobody should buy something with intel integrated "graphics" and expect it to... do stuff.

  • of course, and if it were intel slides then guess who would be on top...
    we need independent reviews.

  • Forgot to add that if this is the case then a more interesting (and in some ways fair) comparison would be against an nVidia based Intel chipset that utilise things such as 9400m integrated graphics chips.
