First AMD C-60's tip up in Germany

Written by Nick Farell


Orders in
Last month AMD released its  1.33 GHz AMD C-60 low power chip with a TDP of 9W and Radeon HD 6290 graphics with a clock speed ranging from 276 MHz to 400 MHz.

Now the Asus Eee PC 1015BX, which has gone on sale in Germany, appears to be the first to sport the new chip. The netbook has a 10 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display,  has 1GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive and  will set you back €206.

The C-60 dual core chip is an  upgrade to the 1 GHz C-50 dual core processor which launched earlier this year.  Not much of a boost, but better than a poke in the eye with a short stick. They will provide a few headaches for Intel. They do offer much better graphics performance than Atom chips and can provide support for HD video playback and DirectX 11 graphics.
