MSI Athlon Neo notebooks

Taiwan-based MSI may launch ultra-thin notebooks with AMD's Yukon platform for Athlon Neo processors as early as October, say industry sources. Digitimes reported on Friday that the PC maker has finished its testing of the notebooks but has not yet decided on a launch date as other PCs equipped with the Yukon platform, possibly including the HP Pavilion dv2, are not selling so well. The AMD processor is meant to compete with Intel's CULV range of CPUs and results in ultraportables that are costlier than netbooks but much less expensive than traditional systems.

The same report maintains AMD's future Tigris notebook platform, meant for 14-inch and larger devices, will be delayed to late in October, with products from manufacturers being released sometime in November. It was previously due for a start of September release to coincide with the launch of Windows 7 in Asia, followed closely by a North American, European, middle eastern and African release in October. Tigris will make its way into notebooks from HP, Toshiba, Acer and ASUS.

AMD's response has simply been that Tigris is still on course for a second half of 2009 debut.
