Advanced Micro Devices on Wednesday announced new mobile processors as it tries to bridge the power and performance gap with Intel, while trying to lower laptop prices.
The company's new processors include its first triple-core and quad-core laptop processors as part of a new Phenom II line, which will boost application performance while reducing power consumption, AMD officials said. Mainstream laptops mostly come with dual-core chips, and adding cores brings more performance to users at lower prices.
Even the peanut butter sandwich
It is starting to look as if Intel's dream of protecting its notebook market from netbooks is going to fall flat on its face. Intel has resisted moves to make netbooks bigger and more useful but now it is starting to look as if it is failing. AMD, VIA and ARM seem to be targeting Intel's prize jewels and the world on the street is that they might just get away with it.

Gamers wanting to get their hands on the "world's most powerful 15-inch laptop" may need to sell a few body parts or sell the kids on the black market. Dubbed the Alienware M15x, the official website suggests a starting price of $1,499, however the notebook's eventual price, after loading up the portable rig with high-end options, can cost more than $4,600. With that kind of pricetag, gamers may just want to buy a desktop and play Crysis at home.
When it arrived on the desktop scene, Intel’s Core i7 levelled the opposition. With enough power to embarrass Intel’s own Core 2 architecture, not to mention AMD’s efforts, and coming at a cost that would make even a banker weep, Core i7 set the benchmark and set it high. Now it’s set to repeat the trick in the laptop market, and we’ve got our hands on a sample boasting the mid-range quad-core 1.73GHz i7-820QM.
Samsung announced its new X series of laptops this morning, and the company let a detail slip about the X120 portable that's less trivial than it may initially sound: the thin portable eschews Intel's netbook-oriented Atom line in favor of a new ultra-low-voltage (ULV) processor from Intel. The SU4100 ULV processor and its siblings will formally launch later this month and have been getting press recently under the internal Intel acronym CULV (for consumer ULV).
Say it's true. That I could finally be watching Hulu on a laptop with an OLED screen by next year. Companies have announced plans and showed concepts, but Samsung says we could see a commercial OLED notebook in 2010.
After introducing its X Series laptops yesterday the company told reporters that it would release an OLED notebook towards the end of 2010, perhaps in the third quarter. Lenovo has also mentioned plans to use OLED and Sony has shown a totally futuristic notebook based on OLED panels, but this is the first solid timing we have heard of.
