Apple TV is set for a major overhaul according to analyst types Digitimes Research. The latest gossip reckons the set-top box is about to switch to an AMD Fusion offering, ditching the Intel processor in the current model.
In addition, the new effort will come without a hard drive, meaning you’ll need to snaffle videos over the cloud in order for it to play nice. This would tie in with rumours of a cloud-based movie rental service based on Apple acquisition Lala.
There’s more too. Digitimes says iOS will be a core part of the device, letting you access social networks and the web on your telly. A pared down Mac Mini, if you like.
