    MSI's AMD Athlon Neo powered U210 ultra-portable reached retail today. While not intended to be a ULPC, this 12.1-inch notebook sells for US $430. It features a 1366 x 768 pixel 12.1 inch screen, and is powered by a 1.6 GHz Athlon Neo MV-40 processor aided by 2 GB of memory, ATI Radeon X1250 integrated graphics, 250 GB of storage, and a 4-in-1 media card reader. It is connected by WiFi, 10/100 Ethernet, and HDMI (for HD displays). Windows Vista Home Premium is the preferred operating system, and comes preinstalled.

    How do these Athlon Neos compare to Atom in terms of performance? And what kind of power does the platform consume?

    Better than Atom, but worse than those CULV we're starting to see at decent prices.

    Worse CPU, worse GPU (yeah that ancient DX9 Radeon X1250 is a lot slower than the G45).


    AMD needs to revamp their mobile platforms ASAP.

    In many cases... 20-50% performance increases over a similar clocked Atom.
