AMD has stated that it has no interest in producing a chip that will compete with Intel’s Atom processor. But the company’s Neo processor is sort of an answer to Intel’s new CULV chips which are meant for thin and light machines that are larger than netbooks. The first computer to use the Neo platform was the HP Pavilion dv2, but now we’re starting to see a few other netbooks and mini-laptops using AMD processors like the Neo.

Sascha from says in addition to the Neo, there are machines on display at Computex from Acer, MSI, and Medion using AMD’s Neo,  Sempron 210U and Sempron L110 processors.

The Medion Akoya E1311, picture above, features an 11.6 inch display, an AMD Neo CPU, ATI Radeon Xpress 1250 graphics with HDMI output, a 160GB hard drive, WiFi, Bluetooth, and a 6 cell battery. It measures 11.5″ x 8″ x 1.2″ and weighs about 3.3 pounds. It will sell for about 400 Euros, which is about $568 US, but I doubt you’ll see it in the US anytime soon. At least not under the Medion brand name.

    come on guys.

    11.6″ screen, Athlon Neo, and………………………. 1250GPU!


    Put the dual-core Neo and the DX10 780G chipset in there, along with a six cell battery and you would have a win.


    Try harder next time.
