Champlain quad-core CPU


AMD is working on a new generation platform, the one that should replace upcoming the Tigris platform powered by Caspian dual-core CPUs.

Danube will have Champain which we guess is Phenom II quad-core mobile edition and the platform includes support for DDR3 / DDR3L (1.35V) and S1g4 socket. The CPU is manufactured in 45nm and should be available in June 2010. Naturally, the platform also supports some new K10.5 Phenom II dual-core processors.

The target group for Danube platform is mainstream notebook market. The platform also includes RS880M series IGP chipset that supports UVD 2 video, power play and DirectX 10.1.

The Southbridge of choice for this platform is AMD SB820M and the graphics part to back it up is codenamed Manhattan series, which we guess is the DirectX 11 hardware in its mobile variant. The release date should be close to June 2010 but AMD currently only says it comes in 2010.
