AMD plans to start the launch of its own version of super-slim laptops based on the Quad-Core Trinity processors. Thus, the position of the current leader in this field will be pushed back.
Although AMD leaves the choice of design and most of the components to its suppliers, it is known that alongside the 32-nanometer Trinity processor, Radeon HD 7000 (support for DirectX 11) video controllers and the DDR3 memory controller will be used as a basis.
Thanks to the Trinity platform, which has much better performance than the Llano (A-Series) processor, ultrabooks from AMD will be characterized by low power consumption without losing the performance speed. The price of such ultrabooks will be much more affordable than of the similar items actively promoted by Intel.
The first models of ultrabooks could have been appreciated during the CES 2012 exhibition in January of this year in the city of Las Vegas.
