AMD displayed several reference designs based on new Temash mobile processor, at MWC in Barcelona. As you have probably noticed, most of affordable Windows 8 tablets and slates are powered with Intel Atom processor. Temash is AMD answer for the same platform, trying to prove that affordable price and strong performance can go hand in hand. At AMD booth we were able to see ((((several reference designs made by Compal and Wistron, big OEM’s that make hardware for HP, Dell and many others.))))
For more gaming oriented public, Wistron NTA10 tablet could be even better choice. As you can see in video, Torchlight II runs on this machine with very satisfying FPS, unlike unbranded Atom Z2760 tablet which was displayed as a reference platform.((( We tried it ourselves, and the difference is best described as unplayable on Atom vs. enjoyable on Temash.)))
The turning point will be the graphics on the Temash chips. I3-I5 power with near independent graphics in a small form factor is very impressive. There is argument that people don't care about graphics on tablets, but I feel android systems have shown how un-true that is. People expect a lot from their devices and Intel can no deliver the full package anymore. The onboard Intel HD4000 can't even come close to competing with the APUs AMD puts out.
