HP dv2 Gets Dual Athl Neo

AMD this afternoon confirmed that its new dual-core Athlon Neo should show in a new version of HP's Pavilion dv2 ultraportable next week. The upgraded system is due on June 10th and, according to CNET, should have the same power use as the present-day single-core model but run much faster in multi-threaded tasks. Integrated graphics will also get a lift through the Radeon HD 3200 chipset, though HP's notebook currently uses dedicated Radeon HD 3450 video.

The processor should also finally make its way to other PCs, according to AMD. A total of 11 companies should offer 24 different notebooks equipped with the low-power chip.

The Athlon Neo is regarded as AMD's part answer to Intel's Atom and sits somewhat above the ultramobile chip in practice. It's intended for larger systems with more notebook-like performance but without the cost overhead of an ultraportable processor.
