AMD table chip plans revealed

The AMD tablet processor road map has been leaked. Like its C-series chips, which are aimed at Intel's Atom line, the new Z-series chips for tablets will be focused on a low TDP while delivering strong graphics capabilities. According to the leaked slide, AMD aims to deliver "The Ultimate HD Tablet."

To deliver on its promise, the x86-based Z-series chips (codenamed Desna) will support DirectX 11 graphics, Adobe Flash Player video acceleration, and smooth streaming of HD video as well as hardware graphics acceleration for Internet Explorer 9, Microsoft Office 10, and Windows 7 visual effects.

The Z-series processors will be well-suited for delivering a high-quality gaming and HD media entertainment for consumers, while its Windows and Office support and embedded security features will appeal to enterprise.

The exact specifications and performance details of the chips have yet to be revealed. If the design delivers on its promise, it will add even greater pressure on Intel's Oak Trail platform, which is already struggling to compete with ARM-based tablet devices. [via Liliputing]
