Samsung Prefers AMD Processor

Chip maker AMD has come out with its own ultra-low voltage (ULV) processor called “Brazos” to challenge Intel’s stranglehold on this segment.

Similar to Intel’s Atom processors, AMD’s Brazos features microarchitecture technology, dual cores and thermals (or TDP) of 9 to 18 watts—features that serve to lengthen the battery life of the netbook and enhance performance.

As a result, Samsung has adopted AMD’s ULV processor to power up its Series 3 305U1A notebooks.

The device, with an 11.6-inch display, boasts of a dual-core processor E-450 with 1.65 GHz clock speed and 1 MB L2 cache from AMD.
