Vizio debuts AMD-powered Windows 8 tablet at CES 2013

Posted by Shane McGlaun

It's only been a few months since Vizio introduced its slick lineup of all-in-one Windows 8 PCs.  And today the company debuted its Windows 8 tablet at CES 2013 in Las Vegas. 

Aptly dubbed the Vizio Tablet PC, the device features an 11.6-inch screen and runs the full version of Windows 8, rather than Windows RT like the current (Nvidia) Microsoft Surface tablet. 

Although Vizio has yet to disclose availability and price, we're willing to bet this will be one of the more affordable Windows 8 tablets on the market because of the AMD CPU.

Indeed, the tablet is powered by a 1 GHz AMD Z60 processor - making it one of the very first Windows 8 tablets to use an AMD chip. The 11.6-inch screen supports full touch interactivity along with full 1080p HD resolution.

Additional specs include 2 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage via a SSD, a two megapixel front camera, and a micro HDMI output.

One the best things about Vizio's tablet? The company seem to have cut all bloatware out of the mix, at least for now. 

This could prove to be a successful Windows 8 tablet for entry-level shoppers if the price is right. Hopefully, Vizio will announce pricing and availability details sooner rather than later.
