AMD plans to offer a cheaper alternative to Intel ultrabooks. The company is currently working on a platform that is to be used on manufacturing some “ultrathin” notebooks.
AMD will release the Trinity platform, which might be used to produce ultra-thin laptops, at a price 20% smaller than a ultrabook.
Until now, AMD was behind Intel but the advantage of the California based company remains integration.
The Trinity platform which might offer ultrabooks at lower prices is not the first example of AMD technology that is similar to Intel. At CES 2012, AMD presented the “Lightning Bolt” technology, who’s name copies the “Thunberbolt” technology from Intel used by Apple on MacBooks.
