CEO Dirk Meyer outlined some rough plans AMD has, including what sort of hardware to expect and what that hardware is intended to do. The company is going to unveil a new platform in the near future intended to directly compete with Atom, the primary selling points being low power consumption, a small profile and a cheaper price than Intel's offerings. The platform will be distinct from Puma and Tigris, AMD's mainstream notebook platforms.
It will not be considered a “netbook” platform, however, with Meyer expressing doubt that the term will even exist for much longer due to the blurring lines between higher-performance notebook hardware and lower-end netbook hardware. No other details were revealed about AMD's upcoming platform, which is expected to be released sometime next year.
