The Hondo chipset will be targeted towards upcoming Windows 8 devices, and will feature dual 1 GHz cores and a Radeon 6250 graphics core running at 276 MHz. While this is not a substantial improvement over the existing Desna line, where Hondo will really differentiate itself is with its new Bobcat core (part of the Brazos T platform).
The Hondo APU will have a TDP of under 4.5W, which is in contrast to Desna’s 5.9W TDP. Hondo will also have approximately 2W of App power, and will be based on a 40nm process. This means AMD has “upped their game” in the land of tablet based chips.
Hondo is scheduled to be released in Q2 of 2012.
Turkish tech news site DonanimHaber has obtained leaked screens of AMD’s leaked roadmap featuring the Hondo APU.
