AMD launched the energy efficient platform Brazos earlier this year. The new processors Ontario and Zacate target Intel's budget CPU Atom and the first deep analysis of the performance of the processor platform has appeared. The test shows Brazos really giving it to Atom and overall paint a bright future for AMD.
AMD’s Brazos platform is based on the Zacate dual-core CPU and AMD has very high expectations from this new architecture. Zacate requires only passive cooling and it can easily slide into the increasingly popular micro ITX form factor.
