AMD Preps Brazos Successor For Late '11 Launch

But at least we know now that AMD is in this game for the long haul as well, as we have learned that there will be a second-generation product that will be released as early late 2011.

Brazos is just one week away from its rumored introduction and we will know more then how competitive the platform really is. Digitimes reported that the Deccan platform will follow Brazos and replace it within one year. Deccan will include the Krishna APU and the Yuba chipset and will begin an internal testing process in Q1 2011. Samples should follow in Q2 and an official introduction could happen in Q4.   

Brazos is a first-generation product for the netbook space for AMD, but it has already scored some important design wins, including MSI netbooks. According to Digitimes, Brazos will also find its way into a tablet PC from Acer, which is somewhat surprising as competition is brutal in this space and shows that AMD may have an interesting platform to offer.     

Brazos is expected to debut at CES with the Ontario APU and the Hudson chipset.

    This is AMD's busy year, they've been working hard to deliver the goods this year, hope they don't let us down.

    AMD CPU's in a tablet PC? Sounds like my kind of product.

    wiinippongamerAnd what about bulldozer?
    It will debute later in 2011. AMD is just introducing the APU chips to the freemarket and consumers. I guess AMD wants to give Intel the bird at CES...if they have the silicon to do it.

    waiting waiting waiting...
    how long has it been since amd has really launched something new instead of leaks and rumors
    intel brings i3, i5, i7 and amd announces bulldozer somewhere at the end of 2010
    amd reveals hexa core phenoms... old architecture with couple extra cores...
    second generation i3, i5, i7 comes out and we still waiting or expecting for a amd equivalent...

    personally i prefer having amd/ati in my rig...
    but i think amd has already had us waiting for too long...
    suddenly im not so enthusiastic about bulldozer anymore...
    not even expecting anything great from them anymore...

    It takes time for Intel or AMD to come up with/engineer/release a product that will compete with their competitor.

    Late '11 !?! By then SandyBridge would have taken over the world.
    The gap between AMD and Intel just gets larger and larger.
    I feel bad that AMD can't keep up with Intel, but then again,
    I'm happy because SandyBridge will be kicking some ass and
    will be the best bang for your buck. I'm pretty sure
    Microcenter will have it for around $240.
