Brazos platform to be announced at CES

AMD plans to begin internal testing of a new, next-generation Deccan platform for netbooks and tablets in the first quarter of 2011, industry sources claimed on Wednesday. A sequel to AMD's first Fusion platform, Brazos, Deccan uses AMD's Krishna Accelerated Processing Unit (APU), which combines graphics directly within the core processor, and the Yuba chipset, according to Digitimes. Brazos has a similar setup using the matching Ontario processor and Hudson chipset.

Ontario is just starting to appear in netbooks like the Toshiba NB550D and so far is known to include the dual-core 1GHz C50 processor, which could be approximately twice as fast as Intel's Atom D510. Most of the early systems launching on Brazos should appear at the CES expo next week.

The Deccan platform should be in production sample testing by mid-year with a view to beginning mass production by the end of 2011. The report mentioned that AMD has reportedly already started receiving orders for Brazos from hardware manufacturers such as Acer and MSI for tablets and netbooks (respectively).

    Why is AMD still

    rearranging the deck chairs on titanic? Why not use ATI's graphics prowess and license ARMs to make smartphone and tablet chips.
