AMD Decides to Go Mobile, Finally

Yes, finally an article about a chips manufacturer that doesn't start with an 'I' and end with 'ntel'. Most of us have been wondering if AMD would ever make an appearance in the mobile market so it was a delight to get some information on the Z-series chips that AMD plans on making a debut with. Better late than never, hopefully it's not too late.

They call the architecture for this chip family 'Fusion' and it is meant to transplant the full PC experience to tablets. They are also doing something interesting by designing the Fusion chips to support Windows 7 and Android. The reasoning for this is that Android has a wide variety of applications and basically dominates the mobile space. On the other end of the spectrum you have Windows 7 which is a must for business. By focusing on the two they intend to cover their bases. According to Chris Cloran, Vice President and General Manager of the computing solutions group, the transition between both operating systems is seamless.

Get ready for some specs after the break.
