AMD is also claiming the performance crown in low-power laptops with the new E-series chips, which was introduced by the company on Wednesday at Computex.
The new chips, dubbed by the company as Brazos 2.0, are designed for low-power laptops such as netbooks, and provide better performance and longer battery life of up to 11 hours on laptops.
The new chips provides better performance-per-watt than the earlier E-series chips on active usage or while watching movies, Su said.
The E-series chip also outperforms competitive chips such as Intel, Su said. In a chart, AMD illustrated that the E-series chips outperform Intel's chips such as the Celeron B940, which is based on the Sandy Bridge microarchitecture and used in low-end laptops.
The E-series chip have integrated graphics that are capable of 3D graphics and DirectX 11, which is the core graphics driver in Windows 7 and the upcoming Windows 8. An integrated Radeon 7000 graphics core can accelerate video, and also general applications like Winzip to uncompress files.
The new E2-1200 and E2-1800 are based on a new processor core. The new chips draw 18 watts of power and the E-1200 runs at 1.4GHz and the E2-1800 runs at 1.7GHz. The chips have 1MB of cache.
PC makers such as Acer, Asus, Hewlett-Packard, Sony, Toshiba, Lenovo and Samsung will launch systems with E-series chips.
