AMD’s answering Santa Rosa with their Puma platform. They hope that this new mobile platform can compete with Intel’s updated Centrino
by using the first chip that AMD’s designed from the ground up specifically for notebooks.
“The chip set in Puma is where AMD gets its edge with features it is offering as much as six months before Intel. Puma supports the latest Microsoft DX10 graphics application programming interface, hardware support for H.264 for high definition DVD decode, 5 GHz PCI Express ports and both the HDMI and emerging DisplayPort interfaces.”
