AMD Bobcat Atom-rival to be revealed in November
Some details about AMD’s Bobcat have already leaked. It’s a rival to Intel very successful Atom processor. AMD has confirmed that it will reveal its ultra-mobile processor in November and note that “reveal” might not mean “launch” or “available” here. Some are wondering why AMD is so late. There is speculation that ultra-mobile (and cheap) processors aren’t very profitable. In my opinion – it is a good business, especially for Intel, who can manufacture them with an advanced process. Why? because these processors are already extremely small. If you can manufacture them with an advanced process using large wafers the yields must be excellent (that means low defects).
