AMD next-generation 'Puma' notebook platform

Advanced Micro Devices today announced the official launch of its next-generation 'Puma' notebook platform. The new platform features ATI Radeon HD 3000 graphics and new AMD Turion X2 Ultra dual-core processors.

The new mobile platform is defined when a notebook has an AMD Turion X2 Ultra processor, ATI Radeon HD 3000 graphics, an AMD 7-series chipset, and an industry-leading wireless card.

The new AMD 7-series chipset, M780G and SB700, feature integrated ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics and have support for DirectX 10. AMD claims its integrated graphics have up to three times the performance of competitor's solutions. The HD 3200 integrated graphics include ATI Avivo HD technology, which improves image viewing and video playback and offloads such work to the GPU, leaving the CPU free to perform other tasks.

New notebook designs based on the platform are available now from major notebook makers including Acer, Asus, Clevo, Fujitsu Siemens, HP, MSI, NEC, and Toshiba.

Wow, I guess I can have a fast running notebook with this new AMD 7-series chipset.
