AMD to launch entry-level desktop platform before September

AMD logoAMD has revealed to its Taiwan motherboard partners that Pisces, a new entry-level desktop platform based on its Athlon II processors (Propus, Rana and Regor) and the new 55nm-based 780G+ IGP chipset (ATI Radeon HD 4200 GPU), is scheduled to be released before September this year.

The 780G+ chipset will enter the design validation test (DVT) stage in April, while related motherboards will be showcased at Computex Taipei 2009 in June, according to industry sources in Taiwan.

AMD declined the opportunity to respond to this report saying it cannot comment on unannounced products.

In related news, market demand for AMD's desktop CPUs including Phenom II X3 700 series and Phenom II X4 920 is climbing due to their low price, prompting motherboard makers to forecast that AMD's share of the global desktop CPU market will step up to 30% in the second quarter.
