AMD’s 40nm Hondo almost ready

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Fits Windows 8 just fine

We got word that AMD is preparing to talk about a rather interesting processor around IDF 2012.

The Intel Developer Forum this year kits off on September 11 and AMD plans to snag a few journalists and show them parts like Trinity desktop parts and the rest of the Virgo platform, next generation Vishera AMD FX cores, but the new Hondo 40nm processor could be the most interesting part AMD has to show off.

Hondo was confirmed in AMD’s official roadmap a while ago and made an appearance back in February, at an official analyst day presentation. Hondo is a 40nm APU stuck at 4.5W TDP and one or two cores deepening on design.

It was said before that Hondo can run Windows 8 just fine and its purpose is to make affordable systems and run against Windows RT competition. Hondo is a first generation ultra-low power APU and it should get replaced by Tamesh, a second generation ultra-power part that should debut in 2013 at 28nm.
