AMD's Jaguar details to be revealed in August
After introducing the tablet-specific chipset earlier this year, AMD is reportedly planning to finally offer the details of its upcoming CPU -- code-named Jaguar -- at a shared event in August.
IDG News reports the company will participate in the Hot Chips symposium at Stanford University alongside IBM®, Oracle® and others. As of yet, little is known about the Jaguar architecture other than that it is supposedly more energy-efficient and faster than its predecessors.
The news provider notes that AMD has "virtually no presence" in the tablet computer market at the moment. However, IDG says the company's reputation for superior graphics processing could prove to be a competitive edge in the rapidly growing industry. Graphics have been somewhat of an afterthought for tablets thus far, so any improvement in the area could be seen as a serious advantage.
With this move, AMD evidently plans join the likes of Microsoft®, NVIDIA® and a handful of others looking to get a bigger piece of the tablet market. ARM currently holds the biggest share in the CPU space, though analysts have noted more competition is likely to emerge as more players enter the fold.
