Hmmm this is interesting; despite hearing about how little AMD is interested in the netbook market we find news that there will be a new AMD based netbook available soon.
The company responsible for this is called Medion the name of the book will be the Akoya Mini E1312.
What makes it even more interesting is that although the product is classified as a netbook it is using a low powered Sempron 2100U and an ATi Radeon TM Xpress 1250 Graphics Chip. The rest of the E1312 is pretty common with an 11.6 Inch display, 160GB HDD, 1GB DDR2 RAM, 1.3 MP web camera, WiFi (b/g/n) you know the drill by now.
The Sempron 2100U should offer better performance than the Atom single core CPUs while the Radeon 1250 is going to be much more snappy than the Intel graphics found in most flavors of netbooks today. What is not know is how this new book will stand up if placed head to head against an Atom on an ION based device.
