AMD introduces new mobile microprocessors
Jan 05, 2011: In the past months we posted a series of articles dedicated to upcoming refresh of mainstream and ultrathin 2010 mobile platforms. If you followed the stories then you may know that a number of not yet released processors was spotted in specifications of Acer, Dell, HP and Lenovo notebooks, and some of these notebooks already materialized in retail stores. Today, AMD added new mobile models to 2010 AMD Mainstream Platform and 2010 AMD Ultrathin Platform pages, and updated AMD product pages as well.

HP service manual reveals new AMD mobile processors
Dec 16, 2010: Yesterday we published a story revealing not-yet officially released Phenom II Triple-Core N870 microprocessor in Dell Inspiron M501R notebook. We suspected that that processor would be a part of future refresh of AMD mainstream "Danube" platform. Today we found more mobile processors from the upcoming refresh. Hewlett Packard recently updated "Maintenance and Service Guide" for Compaq Presario CQ42 and HP G42 notebooks, and added unannounced AMD model numbers and their brief specifications.
