Taiwanese notebook and motherboard specialist Gigabyte has launched its first AMD-powered Windows 8 Pro tablet.

According to liliputing, the new Gigabyte S10A features an AMD Temash-grade A4-1200 processor, a made-for-tablets CPU with a clock speed of up to 1GHz and built-in Radeon HD 8180 integrated graphics core.

It looks similar to its S1082 tablet from late last year – an Atom-powered Windows 8 model that only delivered moderate performance levels. This version appears to come with a keyboard-cover that unfortunately is connected via USB. Apart from being a bit unsightly, using up a USB port just for the keyboard is somewhat surprising.

The S1082 didn’t impress us overly when we saw it early this year – apart from its bulky chassis, it featured a dual-core Celeron chip that required a fan to keep it cool. At this stage, we’re hopeful the S10A won’t need the fan as the A4-1200 CPU is said to have a thermal design power (TDP) power rating of just 3.9-watts, which is incredibly low for a Windows 8 tablet.

Gigabyte will offer a free copy of Microsoft Office Home 2013, according to its press release whilt the unit supports up to a 500GB hard drive.

At this stage, there are no details on pricing for the S10A but we’ll bring them to you as soon as we get them.
