AMD preparing a netbook processor to rival Intel's Atom?

Hexus reports:

''Ultra-portable devices have been the focus of many the industry's big names in 2008. Intel's Atom has been at the forefront of media attention, followed by the likes of VIA's Nano and NVIDIA's Tegra.

With all the usual suspects staking their claim in the portable market, we'd begun to wonder, what's AMD doing? Granted, its ageing Geode processor is still used in some of today's mobile devices, but surely the Sunnyvale-based semiconductor manufacturer has more in store?

Well, apparently it does have something en route. Pictured below is what appears to be a leaked AMD slide, detailing a single-core 64-bit processor clocked at 1GHz.''
