AMD Prepping 'Mutated' Hardware for October 9
AMD has posted a mysterious video as a teaser for an announcement to be made on October 9. Could it be Hondo?
The product is not quite as mysterious as it may sound, as the hints match up closely with previous claims made by AMD about its Hondo APU. Hondo and the Hudson M2T FCH (Fusion Controller Hub) will become the Brazos-T platform that is AMD's x86 play to compete, together with Intel's Atom, against a wave of ARM rivals that will become available in Windows RT notebooks. Hondo's primary target in that market will be Nvidia's Tegra 3.
SemiAccurate posted supposed specifications of AMD's platform, which are to receive the commercial names of the Z-60 APU and the A55T FCH. The dual-core CPU will run at 1.0 GHz and integrate a Radeon HD6250 graphics chip at 276 MHz.
