AMD To Almost Join The Netbook Party

Never say never. AMD has decided to enter the netbook market after all after telling us a while ago that it was not interested at all. I guess that the spectacular growth of these ultraportable notebooks coupled with the success of Intel’s Atom has forced AMD to join the party.

There’s an interesting twist to the story though… It’s said that Yukon, AMD’s new chip, is aimed at the ultraportable notebook computer market and not netbooks. (Update Jan 11th: the official name of the chip is Neo) I am betting that it’s just a semantics game and that very soon, netbooks will be sporting Yukon chips.
