Word of a new MSI netbook packing a dual-core processor has emerged, courtesy not of the company themselves but of their EnergyStar listing. The MSI Wind U250 has a 1.3GHz AMD Athlon II Neo dual core K325 processor, paired with 4GB of RAM and a 320GB hard-drive; while the specific GPU isn’t mentioned, it will get 512MB of dedicated memory.
Unfortunately the EnergyStar site doesn’t have anything more in the way of specifications, nor photos of the new Wind U250. It seems sensible to assume that it will be of a similar size – i.e. 12.1-inches – and design to the existing MSI Wind U230 range.
Of perhaps most interest is the potential GPU the U250 might get. While the U230 uses an ATI Radeon HD 3200 chipset, it’s possible that the new U250 will pack the newer ATI Radeon HD 4200, which should increase graphics performance. Of course, we’ll have to wait to find out for certain when MSI themselves make the Wind U250 official; EnergyStar reckon it’ll be priced at around $600 for the top-spec model.
