AMD Countering Ultrabooks With Ultrathin Notebooks

I think AMD had a much better demonstration at CES 2012 for its Ultrathin notebooks than Intel did with its Ultrabooks (here). During the demonstration of its next generation Trinity APU (showing DX11 gaming / video decoding), AMD whipped the side panel of the "PC" to reveal that it was an Ultrathin notebook actually running the show.

With Trinity, the successor to Llano, AMD is claiming up to 25% faster CPU performance and a 50% increase in graphics processor performance, and all while sipping half the power of current Llano chips.
