Chip maker to undercut Intel

AMD is reportedly preparing to bring its Trinity-series chips to the ultrabook market, after a wide range of Intel-based ultrabooks were promoted last week at CES. AMD's new platform is said to be under development using the code-name Ultrathin, with price points that are said to fall 10 to 20 percent below Intel's alternatives, unnamed sources have told DigiTimes.

The Trinity-based ultrabok platform is expected to reach 20 units by the end of the year, though the number pales in comparison to the models that will likely be driven by Intel's more expensive chipset.

Ultrabooks equipped with AMD chipsets are expected to be sold for prices ranging from $799 to $999, however companies have yet to officially announce such devices.
