AMD debuts Puma platform

In the wake of its 45nm quad-core announcement, AMD has also formally unveiled Puma, a new mobile platform (not pictured). The technology is allegedly aimed at Intel's Centrino platform, which combines a Core 2 Duo, a GM965/PM965 chipset and onboard wireless; Puma turns to a new Turion Ultra processor, combined with an RS780M chipset and a Wi-Fi adapter. As with Centrino, a dedicated videocard is optional.

The Turion Ultra is also known as the Griffin, and is a dual-core CPU with 1MB of L2 cache per core, and support for HyperTransport 3.0. It is additionally compatible with up to 8GB of DDR2 RAM, running as fast as 800MHz. The RS780M, meanwhile, is a DirectX 10-compatible chipset, claimed to be four or times faster graphically than Intel's rival X3100. The 780M can also handle HDMI, HDCP and DisplayPort connections, although the last must be implemented by system builders.

Puma systems should ship by the end of the second quarter of 2008, and will cost anywhere between $699 and $2,500 depending on the configurations of vendors. [via DailyTech]
