CES 2011 : Acer To Launch AMD Fusion-based Tablet Today?

Acer may release its Fusion based tablet today according to an unnamed AMD employee we spoke to at the company's party at House of Blues in Las Vegas.

The most interesting titbit is that it would be based on the Zacate E-350 rather than the Ontario C-50 as suggested by Digitimes.

Both are based on the Bobcat architecture and feature DirectX 11 graphics module based on the Radeon HD 6250. The C-50 is clocked at 1GHz and has a TDP of 9W compared to the 1.6GHz and the 18W TDP for the E-350.

The Taiwanese manufacturer has already said that it would launch a 10.1-inch tablet based on AMD's latest chip back in November 2010 and even provided with a few photos.

The device will weigh around 1Kg, with a 15mm thickness, two 1.3-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, 3G, is powered by Windows 7 OS and would ship in February 2011.
