AMD today announced the introduction of its AM1 platform featuring the AMD quad-core and dual-core "Kabini" APU into the component channel for system builders. Combined with motherboards from leading manufacturers, the new AM1 platform will deliver award-winning Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture and AMD "Jaguar" CPU cores, and bear the AMD Athlon and AMD Sempron APU brands. This will create an ecosystem of flexible and upgradable platforms at compelling price points that also feature USB 3.0 and SATA 6 Gb/s support, and microATX and miniITX motherboards for sleek and power-efficient small form factor PCs.

Supah cheap APU platform for domestic users, I hope they are low power/low cost enough to compete with intel's pentium.

Kaveri, Kabini, Ker-blooey! Another exciting platform designed for low cost, low performance email-checking machines. I can barely contain my excitement...

Looks like mini-ITX at best, but with any luck, they'll compensate by giving it a good price.

What I find most interesting about this most platform is that AMD is introducing a new socketed processor. After all the apprehension a year or so ago that sockets would disappear, this seems to go against that trend.

The special thing about this socket is that it's for SOCs, not APUs or CPUs.

That was intel with all the hub bub about that no socket things. At this end of the spectrum I honestly would rather they had them soldered in. A bit more efficiency that way.

the opteron line already went the LGA route.

soldered = no upgrade, i would still prefer the option to upgrade.

something interesting in that gigabyte board, theres a heatsink below the x16 pcie slot, it's a SoC platform and i'm wondering what's under that tiny heatsink....

Only 2 SATA ports? That's kind of a downer.
