Vizio is now selling the 11.6 inch Windows 8 tablet the company started showing off at CES in January. It’s a tablet with a 1080p display, Windpws 8 software, and an AMD processors.

The Vizio MT11X-A1 is available from the Vizio Store for$600.

Vizio MT11x

On the one hand, this is one of the few tablets in its price range that offers the full Windows 8 experience and which doesn’t ship with an Intel Atom Z2760 Clover Trail processor. On the other hand, instead it ships with an AMD Z-60 low power processor, a 2012 era chip which is starting to show its age.

AMD’s Z-60 “Hondo” processor is a 1 GHz dual core chip with a TDP of 4.5 watts and built-in AMD Radeon HD 6250 graphics. But it seems a bit odd to ship a tablet with that processor now that AMD’s new Temash chips are available, offering better performance and lower power consumption.

Still, the tablet I played with a CES in January seemed pretty responsive, so the Hondo chip might be all you really need for basic Windows 8 functionality. The tablet also features 64GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, stereo speakers, a 2MP front-facing camera, and a 10-point capacitive multitouch touchscreen.

It has a 33Whr battery which Vizio says should last for up to 5 hours of run time, and the tablet has a micro USB port, micro HDMI port, and a headset jack.

The Vizio MT11X-A1 measures 11.7′ x 7.5″ x 0.4″ and weighs about 1.8 pounds.

  1. What a joke, vizio is making a joke of themselves by launching this with Hondo, if it were smart it would launch a temash tablet. They make themselves and AMD look bad

    1. why is it a joke? this was announced loooong before amd announced temash and the perf bbetween the a4-1200 shoulkd be similar

      1. Its a joke how vizio is only releasing this tablet now, after months of the announcement and after AMD has launched temash, its a joke. Performance is similar? Nope temash is faster and more power efficient.

        1. So what? Itll take 6 months from now until ull see Temash tablets for sale, e.g. Surface Pro 2..

          1. There is a temash device on the market right now(an “ultrabook”). OEMs can start using temash as soon as they want to.
