The current arena of AMD's chips contains AMD C-30 and C-50 chips that are straight up aimed at Intel's Atom chips for notebooks. These new C-series chips include an iterated AMD Radeon graphics core that's capable of handling 3D graphics acceleration and 1080p video playback. Sounds like its tablet party time.
ZiiLabs, but it seems as though each time they show their head they seem to fade back into the background as swiftly as they re-appeared.
