Most of you must have heard that AMD is moving out from the war against Intel in high-end desktop segment and now they’ll focus more on mobile products. AMD LiveBox, which is being shown at Computex, gives a clear idea about what AMD is up to. LiveBox is a mini desktop PC which needs to plugged directly into any wall socket through its two pronged power connectors for operation.
AMD LiveBox is powered up by AMD’s C-60 Fusion APU (1.0 GHz), 1 GB of RAM and Radeon HD 6200 graphics. For storage, it comes with a 64 GB Samsung SSD. All this is enough for basic stuff like web surfing, editing documents and playing full HD content. As for connectivity, AMD LiveBox offers two USB 2.0 ports, a Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI, SD card slot, SIM slot (with support for quad band 3G) and Bluetooth 4.0. All of this is enough for such a small package but having WiFi would have been a big positive.
There is no information about pricing or availability to such AMD-powered products.
