Toshiba's Puma-based Satellite A305 benched

AMD's Puma at its best

Even though it has just been showcased at Computex, we now have a chance to get a general idea about AMD's upcoming Puma, implemented on Toshiba's glossy A305 notebook.

The credit goes to NotebookReview for smuggling the wPrime on it and doing a quick comparison with the older A305D notebook. The results are good, but bear in mind that we are still looking at the engineering sample so it can only get better once the drivers get a final polish.

Unlike the older A305D, which only had a VGA and S-Video output, the Puma based A305 will have the S-Video replaced with an HDMI output, courtesy of the integrated graphics. The short battery life can also be attributed to the fact that this is an early engineering sample and that there is still a lot optimization to be done.

You can check out the pictures and other specifications here.
