Advanced Micro Devices is no longer a spectator on the tablet front. Through coordinated efforts with Acer, it has led to the Trinity second-generation APU being used in an Iconia Tab.
This is not the first Trinity-powered tablet that we write about. Computex 2012 has already become the stage for the launch of the 11.6-inch Compal model. Nevertheless, more is always better in this case.
Trinity is a wonder of a chip, with very good processing and graphics, so it would be a shame for it to not be used in slates, especially with Windows 8 coming in.
Acer didn't give a name, so the item is simply known as the Iconia Tab Windows 8 right now.
The company did say the newcomer would replace the Iconia Tab W500, though (2 GB DDR3, 16/32GB Flash storage).
We'll have to wait and see how well it sells after the launch of Microsoft's OS, later this year.
