When it comes to tiny systems such as nettops, AMD’s E-350 Fusion is doing what the Atom and ION combo can do, only faster, cooler and quieter. While this is upsetting for NVIDIA and Intel, the consumer benefits almost as much as AMD does. techPowerUp just finished a review of a Foxconn product that demonstrates the abilities of the Fusion platform, the Netbox NT-A3500. It is not for sale yet in North America but when it does hit the market you can expect around a $200 pricetag, plus RAM and a storage drive. For that price you get the AMD E-350 and Radeon HD 6310 as well as Realtek ALC888S audio. Wireless and wired LAN, four USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports, optical audio and analog audio, and DVI and HDMI outputs. techPowerUp covers the rest of the features in their full review.
"Foxconn has made some waves with their compact but very capable ION based NT-330I Netbox back in 2010. Now, almost a year later the market has evolved and Foxconn is sending their newest version into the race. The NT-A3500 is based on the AMD Fusion platform, aiming to be faster, cooler and quieter."
