Acer uses AMD for tablets

Written by Nick Farell

Windows 7 on Ontario APU

Tablet maker Acer's initial batch of tablet PCs includes a 10.1-inch Windows 7-based model might be the first to use AMD's Ontario APU codenamed C-50.

The dual-core C-50 APU, which uses only 9W of power and is priced at about US$55-60. It includes an integrated Radeon HD 6250 graphics chip. According to Digitimes the 10.1-inch Windows 7-based model has two 1.3-megapixel webcams, Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity.

It will ship with a docking station that features a keyboard and charger. The tablet PC will hit the shops in February. Acer does not seem to be going for an AMD only shop. It is also issuing a 7-inch Qualcomm Snapdragon-based model and a 10.1-inch Nvidia Tegra 2-based model both supporting Wi-Fi and 3G and set for launch in April 2011.
