Ontario to launch in Q1 2011

by on06 October 2010

To be showcased at CES
It is expected that many AMD partners and OEMs will have their Fusion based products, powered by Ontario processors, ready for CES. The availability should follow shortly after and by Cebit time Ontario-based products should be quite widespread.

This is a bit better timeframe than previous 1H of 2011 and Ontario should do good against Intel's Atom in its single-core iteration, while dual-core Ontario plans to fight with Pentium dual core class notebooks.

It is all about AMD’s partners now, they have the samples, they do like it as its small and cheap and it can give you some eight hours battery life, of course in best case scenario. This is probably the most interesting chip that AMD has made since the good old K8 and it has a good chance to really win some market share for AMD.
