AMD finally gets into the netbook world

A rumor is floating around that comes by way of DigiTimes and the sites network of sources in the computer industry. According to the sources, AMD will be announcing the Brazos platform for notebooks and tablets officially at the show. Brazos is a combination of the Ontario APU and Hudson chipset.

The same sources also claim that AMD will pull the Deccan platform out of the closet at the show as well. Deccan is a Krishna APU and a Yuba chipset. AMD will supposedly be internal testing the Deccan chipset in Q1 2011 and send samples out to clients in Q2.

Mass shipments of Deccan parts are expected by the end of 2011. It's not clear if we will see and prototype gear at CES using either of these platforms. The sources do claim that MSI and Acer have already placed Brazos orders.
