CeBIT 2011 | Asus shows line-up of new Eee PCs with AMD Brazos and Intel Atom processors
New and updated netbooks were spotted at the Asus booth at CeBIT 2011 expo this week. The basic design currently remains unchanged, but the specifications will be getting a refresh with either AMD’s new Fusion APU or Intel’s latest Atom processor.
The Asus Eee PC 1015B and 1215B will feature 10.1-inch and 12.1-inch screens, respectively, and be sporting new AMD Brazos chipsets. The former will include a 1GHz C-50 dual-core APU with integrated Radeon HD 6250 GPU while the latter will have the more powerful E-350 APU with Radeon HD 6310 graphics. In terms of looks, both units show no major differences from the Intel-based Eee netbooks.
The Eee PC 1011PX is the newcomer to the entry-level netbook line-up. At 10.1-inches with 1024x600 resolution, the new netbook will be coming with a 1.66GHz dual-core Intel Atom N570 and up to 11 hours of battery life.
Two current Eee PC models, 1018P and 1015PN, will both be getting Atom N570 CPU updates. The 1018P, however, will now include USB 3.0 connectivity while the 1015PN will continue to have Nvidia Optimus switchable graphics between Intel GMA 3150 and Nvidia ION 2.
