Default Acer preps netbook with 45-nm AMD Geneva processor

Sick of netbooks yet? Hopefully not, because Acer appears to be cooking up an interesting new specimen. Mobile blog Macles has nabbed a good number of details about an upcoming Aspire One laptop featuring a brand-new AMD platform. And there are pictures.

Acer will base the Aspire One 521 on an AMD V105 processor, which will have a single 1.2GHz core, 512KB of L2 cache, a DDR3 memory controller, and a 9W power envelope. Macles identifies the V105 as the slowest member of AMD's Geneva processor family, itself part of the Nile platform. Dig up AMD's latest public mobile roadmap, and we see Geneva will be AMD's first 45-nm CPU geared toward ultrathin laptops. Geneva will have a ball-grid-array design that should be a better fit in small laptops, and higher-end versions of the CPU will have two cores.
