AMD Brazos 2.0 is being in a lot of entry level notebooks and netbooks, but the company already has big plans for the next generation Brazos 3.0 chip. Unlike the Brazos 2.0, the v3.0 will be manufactured using 28nm technology and will be made available in both dual and quad core variants.
Codenamed Kabini, the Brazos 3.0 will bring the much need USB 3.0 support, which was surprisingly lacking in the Brazos 2.0. A workaround was developed by using it with A68 chipset that brought support for 2x USB 3.0 ports and 8x USB 2.0 ports. This ‘tradition’ will be continued by 28nm Kabini chipset.
The aforementioned chipset will have 2x 6Gbps ports, 2x USB 3.0 ports and (undisclosed)x USB 2.0 ports and SDIO support. AMD Brazos 3.0 will make its debut in Q2-Q3 2013 as Brazos 2.0 will last until Q2 2013.
