Puma/Turion Ultra specs

Details of AMD's planned announcements at Computex have emerged, OEM sources for TG Daily are said to claim. The Puma platform is expected to be launched at the beginning of the show, June 3rd, and will feature the "Griffin" CPU, now named the Turion Ultra. Also said to be included is the RS780M, a mobile version of the 780G chipset; on this will be a Mobility Radeon 3200 graphics chip, and Wi-Fi receivers from the likes of Atheros and Broadcom.

Puma notebooks should include 12.1-, 13.3-, 15.4- and 17-inch sizes, and present the option of discrete Mobility Radeon 3450, 3650 and 3850 processors. SSD drives will be available as a storage option, but AMD is said to believe they are "too expensive" for volume business and consumer sales. This may change with the Shrike platform due for 2009.
