AMD enters low cost PC market

AMD looks like it is a spent force today, pretty much like how its graphics arm, ATi is compared to Intel and NVIDIA, respectively. Still, kudos to the folks at AMD for keeping some semblance of check and balance in the processor wars. AMD will be working on a processor to penetrate the low-cost PC market which is currently being dominated by the Intel Atom and Via Technology Nano processors. These new offerings from AMD will support 6-bit instructions and based on their previous generation K8 architecture. You will get a capped speed of 1.2GHz in the single-core model, manufactured under the 65nm process. If AMD were to stand any chance of making an impact, they’d best price it just below Intel’s Atom IMHO.
