AMD to focus on Bobcat netbook CPU development instead of rushing into tablet PC market

Ever wondered what happened to AMD’s Bobcat processor, which is basically their answer to Intel’s Atom for use in netbook and ultra-light notebook PCs? AMD senior vice president and general manager of Products Group Rick Bergman spoke at Computex 2010 and gave assurance that the low-TDP x86 processor is still on-track for a release on 2011. Bergman also mentioned that AMD is more optimistic toward the netbook’s future growth, so instead of rushing to enter the tablet PC market which they still see as an incomplete ecosystem and lacking in real market demand, they are going to focus on Bobcat for the time being.
