    AnandTech - Vizio's AMD Z60 Hondo-based Windows 8 Tablet PC at CES 2013

    Anandtech wrote a quick blurb on the Vizio tablet with AMD. positive impressions overall. it seems that Vizio downclocked the CPU to hit 4.5W but says that even at 1080p, it seemed faster and smoother than the Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T (with a Clover Trail Atom processor) at 1366x768.

    Hopefully AMD can get back in the game and price it at the same as Intel's Atom. for performance that slots between Atom and mobile Core processors at the same price as Atom? that could win some fans.

    I just don't understand WHY AMD isn't targeting the tablet PC sector with everything they got. This is LITERALLY how they are going to make themselves relevant for the future is through powerful, low cost, low powered chips; basically what they're doing and have done for a long while but in a new PC front. Right now, Intel sucks hard for the low powered tablet PCs with the Atom. The i series is decent, but again, AMD wins over in graphical performance which what Windows 8 wants more than anything. It's bewildering. Looking forward in seeing more from AMD, I'd LOVE an AMD powered Surface tablet. This is for sure.

    Windows 8 Pro w/ WMC on all three.

    I suppose I am the only person who has had better luck with Intel processors.
