AMD announces new LIVE! PCs from Alienware, Dell

Cyrus Farivar

It's been a little while since we've heard from AMD LIVE!, the company's answer to Intel's Viiv platform, but today, AMD announced its latest round of Live PCs, made by Alienware and Dell. While we don't have a lot of details on what exactly will constitute these devices, the word on the street is that Alienware will be producing a "DHS high-definition" media center, packing an Athlon 64 X2 processor, a D2Audio home theater amplifier and NVIDIA nForce 430/GeForce 6150 graphics card. (For those of you keeping score at home, Alienware's previous DHS 2 featured Intel's Pentium 4 chips.) In related news, AMD added new software features to be included in its Entertainment Suite, such as voice and video chat, a new kids-friendly browser and new WildTangent games. No word on when this will be available to the masses (nor how much it will cost), but it will be demoed at this week's DigitalLife show in New York.
