ATI and AMD ready response to Centrino

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 10:17 am

Although AMD has made great strides in both desktop and server CPU market share, Intel is still king of the hill when it comes to mobile applications. This is due in no small part to its Centrino platform which combines an Intel CPU, chipset, and wireless chip into an integrated and easy-to-market package.

In response, AMD and ATI are reportedly developing Yokohama, a more integrated notebook platform that will combine AMD’s 64-bit Turion notebook CPUs and ATI chipsets along with a third-party WiFi chipset from the likes of Airgo, Atheros, or Broadcom. (AMD plans to develop its own WiFi chips down the line.)
