It will be the llano fusion APU which was already pictured by AMD also defeating the sandy bridge notebook platform in performance/power consumption. Llano will be out in July and will probably cause a price drop in notebooks then

Ahh, I thought I seen that floating around here, but for some reason I didn't clue in it was the mainstream notebook one. Much obliged.

It's great to see AMD back on the top in one category. Unfortunately, they entered the race too late and netbook sales have drastically decreased as people lost interest in them. And although this is definitely a great engineering feat, it will not reward the company financially.

While that may be true-the reason people lost interest is because of the lack of multimedia performance.It will be interesting to see if they come back now.Regardless,the will absolutely benefit from this platform because it will be easily adapted to tablets and similar devices.

Actually the way I see it the netbook market is only just taking off. With the advent of 28nm quad core ultra low power amd apu chips coming in 2012 netbooks will actually start offering some significant horsepower at brilliant wattages like 15w. The quad apu's are also going to be using the next gen gpu architecture too so expect even better gaming performance. Even the impressive performance per watt e-350 is a good apu using the old gpu tech in a first gen new ultra low power cpu die model. I was quite tempted to buy one but now im holding out till 2012. If amd follows suit with intel and starts offering the zacate server models with multiple cores then you could start seeing netbooks with upto 16 cores on a 18nm die. Even nvidia's lowest gt520 atm has 48 cuda cores which is 32 more than the generation before meaning perhaps in the coming year we cold see 96 or 128 being the new minimum on ion3/4/5 combined with intels latest atom lineup unless of course intel have beefed up their integrated on die gpu to comparable performance too. Netbooks that inspire jokes like "but can it run crysis 2" may become an exciting reality.

Atom in netbooks = single core. Atom D525 = dual core nettops and low power computers. Brazo provides better performance overall to atom dual cores in a variety of tasks, a vastly superior power consumption when playing HD mdedia content, and it has a power consumption that is well suited for small laptops with a basic 6 cell. People are really hard to impress it seems. If you put a brazo in a netbook style computer, you have access to smooth HD video and basic gaming, long battery life, and very adequate performance for a variety of computing tasks. On a single core pinetrail netbook with intel 300 graphics and 1gb of memory, word processing is almost too much, power point in MS office is about pushing its limits. With a brazo you could very well pull off video editing, encoding, gaming, HD movies, and encryption. It isn't fast, but it is capable, and extremely portable. Again, people are really hard to impress it seems.

This looks a lot more like a CULV style notebook then an atom netbook contender. AMD definitely brings enough performance here to finally make a "netbook" a desktop/laptop replacer. So it doesn't beat a dual core atom clocked 600mhz faster with hyper threading and a much more resource hungry ion chipset in every benchmark. In my opinion this brings the perfect level of performance for anybody not looking to do any sort of intensive computing or gaming. Future interations are only going to be more powerful and efficient.

AMD delivered here I think. I am impressed.

Atom D515 and D525 are used in many netbooks, even though they are considered as nettop processors. One major difference between D515/D525 and N550 is that the D series lack speed-step technology which make it less efficient in power consumption

I agree that is overall better, but the difference between the two is small. D525 is some cases was faster like in winrar and X264 encoding

Please show me a netbook with AMD E-350 processor that cost under $350
You can find netbooks that has Atom dual-core with ion graphics for under $350, and yet you are comparing that more expensive AMD processor to a single core Atom with GMA 300 graphics.
