Vizio Announces Windows 8 AMD Tablet

[CES 2013] While CES doesn’t officially begin until Tuesday, many press announcements and unveils related to the show have already begun. One of these announcements comes from Vizio, who has now announced plans for their first Windows 8 tablet.

The Vizio Tablet is an 11.6-inch slate that will pack a dual-core 1GHz AMD z60 processor, a 1080p display and 2GB of RAM. Other specs include 64GB SSD storage, 2MP front cam, micro-HDMI, and micro-USB.

One of the biggest negative to Windows hardware over the years is that many vendors choose to fill their devices up with tons of bloatware that make them slow and, well, annoying.

The good news here is that the Vizio Tablet PC has a “Microsoft Signature” software install. For those that don’t know, that means it is a clean installation with no added bloatware. This is perfect for consumers looking for a pure Windows 8 experience without vendor-specific add-ons like start menus and vendor software.

An AMD processor and 1080p display certainly sounds like a unique match. So when is it coming? Unfortunately we have no specific launch date or even pricing at this point. Would you consider an AMD-based Windows 8 tablet if the price was right?

      They prefer to torture us, I’m afraid.

      I personally think this one looks interesting. No bloatware and an AMD processor. If the price is right— it could certainly be a great alternative to the many Intel Windows tablets out there right now. :)
