AMD is all set to release a new range of low power APUs called Krishna for the notebooks, particularly netbook sized computers. Details of this APU have been scanty – until now. The Krishna is going to be a dual core processor with entry level graphics. The TDP of the chip is said to be mere 8 watts.
This puts the AMD Krishna into extremely low voltage CPUs, at par with the Atom N550 processor which also happens to have same TDP as noted in the Samsung NF208 review. Thus, we think it will make its way as a replacement for AMD chips being used in notebooks with 12.1 displays.The power consumption is is even lower than the AMD C50 chip found in Asus 1215B and Acer 522.related queries: amd krishna
