Asus releases AMD based netbook

Written by Nick Farell


EEEgods it is Brazos
ASUS has released the ASUS Eee PC 1215B netbook based on the new AMD Brazos platform.

It is one of the first to use both E- and C-Series Fusion APUs, which AMD claims provide enhanced PC experiences on small form factor without killing the battery. It means that the Eee PC 1215B gets DirectX 11 support integrated in to the chip for superior visuals.

So, the cheaper €399 version features AMD's C-50 dual core processor running at 1.0GHz, which is still slower than some smartphones. However it has a TDP of just 9W, which means that its battery life is rather good. Asus claims it will last 8.5 hours, if it is going downhill and the wind is behind it.

The pricier €449 SKU features the much more prolific E-350 APU, with a faster GPU and a 1.6GHz CPU clock. Both feature a USB 3.0 port, Bluetooth 3.0 and 802.11n Wi-Fi. The 1215B has already been listed in several shops and availability is expected shortly.
