The new ultramobile CPU from AMD, codenamed Congo, has appeared in a new MSI Wind.  A 1.6GHz Athlon Neo X2 L335 processor along with the new 780M + SB710 chipset and a DX10 compatible ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3200 power the 12.1″ MSI Wind 12 U230.  HEXUS snagged this laptop just a hair over a month in advance of its release, to see if the lowered battery life is worth the performance increase from the dual core Athlon.

“We’ve already put a fair few MSI Wind netbooks to the test here at HEXUS, but one that has recently piqued our interest is the MSI Wind 12 U230 – a 12in ultra-portable that sports AMD’s second-generation ultra-thin platform, Congo.”
