Turbo Dock tweaks future AMD-powered hybrid tablets

AMD logoThere are several hybrid tablets on the market today with screens that are detachable from keyboard docks - allowing users to stradle the best of both worlds.

Tablets are great if you're not going to type all that much, but users who want to knock out a long e-mail or document will undoubtedly wish for a keyboard in short order. This is where the hybrid tablets are convenient because they support both options.

Turbo Dock tweaks future AMD-powered hybrid tablets

Interestingly, AMD recently announced a new device dubbed "Turbo Dock" for (future) tablets powered by its x86 processors that automatically adjusts performance based on mode.

For example, when Turbo Dock technology is used in tablet mode, it offers users support for full HD resolution video, 3D gaming, and other tasks. Full CPU speed might not be required in tablet mode, so Turbo Dock technology can lower CPU performance and extend battery life accordingly. Turbo Dock is also capable of boosting CPU and GPU performance by up to 40% when the hybrid tablet is attached to its keyboard dock.

AMD figures that when the user connects the tablet to the keyboard dock, they will be performing tasks requiring full CPU performance.

The Turbo Dock should be available later this year when tablets equipped with AMD's Temash platform begin shipping. Essentially, Temash can best be described as a low-power platform supporting a CPU, with two or four cores paired with a Radeon HD graphics processor supporting DirectX 11 graphics.
