Gigabyte gives Temash a chance, introduces bulky S10A slate

Gigabyte has introduced the S10A, a tablet which features AMD’s A4-1200 Temash processor.

Temash, which aims to compete with Intel’s Atom and Celeron lines, promises to deliver ‘robust’ graphical performance while maintaining good battery life.  The Gigabyte S10A features a 1GHz dual-core along with a Radeon HD 8180 GPU, and a TDP of just 3.9 watts.

Gigabyte claims that the S10A offers an ‘exceptional’ mobile experience through Windows 8, hard drive space of up to 500GB, and a bevy of connectivity—most importantly, USB 3.0.  The tablet comes preloaded with Office Home 2013, and has an estimated battery life of 14 hours under normal usage.

Like most other standalone slates, the Gigabyte S10A has an optional multimedia dock—which is actually a necessity if you’re planning to fully utilize Office.
