AMD previews next gen low power chips

AMD has a slew of new chips that are based on the new low-power Bobcat core, where they displayed it recently on a test system with a new Zacate processor that sips just 18W or less of juice. Apart from that, this platform also covers the upcoming Ontario processors which are meant to work in netbooks and other low-powered thin and light laptops, maxing out at a mere 9W of power. 9W for a dual core chip with integrated Radeon HD 6250 graphics? That’s pretty nuts, and to know that they can also support DDR3 memory, 3D and HD graphics, and DirectX 11 makes us even more excited. Guess AMD is starting to make headway against the Intel Atom platform by holding its ground in the power consumption department.
