The move comes as no real surprise seeing as AMD had discontinued its low-power Geode processor earlier this year to focus on more mainstream products. The XO-1.5 will also contain a new VX855 chipset that supposedly adds high-definition video decoding and 3D graphics, as well as surround sound, while maintaining its low power requirements and being slightly cheaper to build. This will be bolstered by 1GB of DDR2 SDRAM and 4GB of NAND Flash, with an option for 8GB.
The company is also looking towards its partnership with PixelQi to improve the both brightness and efficiency of the screen on future models, and confirmed that work is progressing on its dual touch screen XO, which is reportedly set to arrive sometime in 2010.
