AMD Announces 64-bit Dual-core Processor for Notebooks
AMD has announced their Turion 64 X2 mobile technology processor, currently the first and only family of 64-bit dual-core processors designed for notebooks.

With the upcoming 64-bit version of Windows Vista AMD are positioning themselves to take advantage of this option on all PC platforms.

AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology is based on the same industry-leading Direct Connect Architecture featured in the AMD Opteron and AMD Athlon 64 X2 processors, providing high-speed links between cores, memory and I/O for increased system performance. The advanced feature set of AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology also includes:

  • Multi-core Power Management, enabling reduced power consumption for extended battery life;
  • AMD Digital Media Xpress for accelerated image processing, audio and video encoding and decoding, 3D graphic rendering; and
  • AMD Virtualisation, providing improved performance, reliability, and security for virtualised environments.

    Worldwide, consumers can expect to see notebooks based on AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology this quarter. Systems are initially expected from Acer, ASUS, BenQ, Flocity, FSC, Fujitsu, Gateway, HP, MSI, NEC, Packard Bell, Sotec and TongFang.

    Processor models for the new Turion 64 X2 include:

  • TL-60, 2.0GHz, 2x 512KB L2 cache and 35W thermal design
  • TL-56, 1.8GHz, 2x 512KB L2 cache and 33W thermal design
  • TL-52, 1.6GHz, 2x 512KB L2 cache and 31W thermal design
