CES 2009: New 'elite level' platform unveiled at trade show with low price point

AMD unleashes the Dragon

AMD has unveiled its Dragon Desktop Platform at this year’s CES show, with the vendor squaring up to rivals including Intel by boldly claiming it is over $1,000 (£670) cheaper than a similar rig built with competitor products.

Describing the platform as offering ‘elite level performance for under $900 (£609)’, the vendor has already signed deals with several high profile system builders including HP, Dell and Alienware.

The platform combines the Series 7 chipsets with its new AMD Phenom II X4 processor range and ATi’s Radeon 4800 series graphics cards.

The first systems featuring the platform are expected to reach US retail during the first quarter of 2009.
