    AMD plans to offer two processors for the ULPC. Cost-effectiveness being the mantra, AMD plans to offer processors that provide users of ULPC with a level of performance that takes it closer to that of regular PCs and eradicate the netPC/netbook moniker as the processors offer more performance at a low cost than what the likes of Atom or Nano could. Of course this comes at the expense of much higher TDP and slightly higher price. Perhaps the performance to price ratio is what AMD is banking on.

    There are two parts under the Athlon X2 banner. The 22W, 1.50 GHz dual-core 3250e processor aims to compete with the desktop variant of Atom dual core where the Athlon's architectural superiority aims to give it a leading edge. The issue of energy savings dampens when it comes to desktop. Another processor, the single-core Athlon 2650e that is available now is rated at 15W with a 1.60 GHz clock speed. It comes with 512 KB L2 cache.

    Nice , but why 740 ?

    this is very nice , but why pairing it with 740 chipset and not the impressive 780 ?

    does 740 have the excellent power management features of 780 ?

    and about the IGP , I don't think it will make a big difference , as the cpu is very weak to handle graphic demanding apps or games .

    but all-in-all I wish AMD a big success in netbook/ulpc field!

    You can still pair a HD 3450/HD 2400 with a 740G yes :)
