Advanced Micro Devices will demonstrate its next-generation platform aimed at mobile computers at Computex Taipei 2009 trade-show in early June, according to numerous media reports. The demonstration in less than a month may indicate that the company’s code-named Tigris platform is on-track for commercial release by the time back-to-school season starts.

The forthcoming Tigris platform will be based on dual-core code-named “Caspian” central processing unit  manufacturing using 45nm fabrication process as well as next-generation RS880M+SB710 core-logic set. The new platform will also utilize 3rd generation S1 socket for processors and hence is likely to be compatible with quad-core mobile CPU code-named Champlain that are due in 2010. Select manufacturers will also install ATI Mobility Radeon discrete graphics processors made using 40nm process technology into laptops.

AMD’s Tigris platform is mostly aimed at desktop replacement as well as thin-and-light notebooks, but not on ultra-portables or netbooks. Therefore, its market success completely depends on performance as well as power consumption, but not on the low-price.

AMD did not comment on the news-story.
