Vizio announces 11-inch 1080p Windows 8 tablet, with AMD chipset

Vizio has introduced an 11.6-inch Windows 8 tablet at CES 2013, set to ship in the spring.

The tablet features a full 1080p display and AMD dual-core 1GHz Z-60 processor, with discrete Radeon HD graphics, making it the first Windows 8 tablet to feature an AMD chipset. 

The tablet will run a clean install of Windows 8, known as Microsoft Signature edition, which will be welcomed by customers who don't like bloatware from manufacturers. 

Weighing 752g, other specs Vizio has included on the tablet are a 64GB SSD, 2GB of RAM, micro HDMI and Micro-USB ports, dual-band Wi-Fi, stereo speakers, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. With these specs, Vizio's tablet will be able to run full Windows 8 apps, as well as apps available on the Windows Store.

The company has not yet detailed specific pricing or availability. Pocket-lint is hitting the show floor in Las Vegas to provide full coverage, and we suspect to get some hands-on time with Vizio's tab at some point.

Stay tuned.
