Although late to the party, AMD has been really trying hard to capture some share of the netbook processor market ever since the world’s second largest computer chip manufacturer decided to take on Intel by the horn. As part of that endeavor, comes a new member of the Ontario-based C-series of AMD Fusion APUs called the C-60. The dual-core chip has a clock speed of only 1GHz but unlike the other chips of the same family – this can be overclocked with the help of the Turbo core mode up to 1.3GHz. We understand even that is not very fast, but the two cores will provide some respite.
The C-60 is expected to be accompanied by the usual AMD Radeon HD 6250 integrated graphics card with a GPU clock speed of 280MHz which can be overclocked up to 400 MHz thanks to the Turbo core mode. Note that Turbo core is nothing but AMD’s coining of the overclocking feature parallel to what Intel calls Turbo boost technology.
Although better equipped, the C-60 promises an equal amount of energy consumption as the C30 or C-50 – about 9W. This is low-voltage but nothing compared to some of the tablet processors like Intel’s shortly expected Oaktrail based ones that, as Intel promised, will eat up only 3W.
There’s no official release date for the APU, not even any mention of the OEM per unit pricing but expect some more information and possibly some demo during this year’s Computex happening at Taipei.
