AMD has said that its upcoming Hondo processor will be focused on Windows 8 tablets.
The chip is a push for AMD to make its mark in the competitive tablet market, as the chip manufacturer sees potential in the Windows platform.
“This is a Windows 8 product, only. We’re not doing Android on this platform, at least not now,” said AMD’s corporate VP Steve Belt.
“It is a conscious decision not to go after Android. We think the Windows 8 space has a lot of opportunity, there’s plenty of TAM [total addressable market] there for us to go at.”
Although it is oriented towards the Windows platform, Hondo will also support Linux.
