AMD to out two new desktop platforms next year

By May of 2010, chipmaker AMD will officially introduce two new desktop platforms, with the high-end Leo and more mainstream Dorado, says Digitimes. The information comes from motherboard makers, who revealed the Leo will be made up of current 45nm Phenom II or future six-core Thuban CPUs paired with either 890FX or 890GX northbridge and SB850 southbridge chipsets.

The Dorado, in the meantime, will contain an Athlon II CPU, an 880G (RS880P) northbridge and an SB810 southbridge chipsets. AMD plans to include its ATI brand's Radeon HD 5000 series graphics chipsets as part of each platform. No pricing information for either platform is known.
