In 2010 AMD plans to replace its Dragon platform with Leo in the enthusiast desktop space and in mainstream it plans to swap Pisces with Dorado.

The heart of Dorado is Athlon II in all its variants including dual, three and quad-core version. This core as well as the majority of other AMD predecessors fit in socket AM3 and is 45nm. AMD won’t have any 32nm products in 2010, at least it’s highly unlikely at time.

The chipset of choice is AMD RS880P and this one will sport a DirectX 10.1 graphics core, something from the Radeon HD 4000 generation. It has UVD 2 and support Asymmetric hybrid crossfire. The IGP will run at 560MHz.

The Southbridge as a part of Dorado chipset is SB810 and it supports 14 USB ports and 3Gb/s SATA. If one decides to use external graphics, they should match it with one of ATI’s Evergreen DirectX 11 cards.
