AMD 64-bit dual-core notebooks keep price advantage

Posted on Tuesday, September 05 2006 @ 20:42:50 CEST by

The unit price of AMD Turion 64 X2-based laptops is about $150 less than an Intel Core 2 Duo Merom based notebook:
AMD still has an edge in pricing to compete in the 64-bit dual-core notebook market, sources at notebook vendors indicated, adding that the sufficient performance of the Turion 64 X2 CPU has also caught the attention of buyers.

Hewlett Packard (HP) offers its Pavilion dv6000z, which features the AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile processor (1.80GHz/512KB), at a price tag of US$898. The suggested price is US$156 cheaper than an HP Pavilion dv600t, which is based on the Intel Core 2 Duo mobile CPU (1.83GHz, 667MHz FSB, 2MB cache).

Despite a higher price than AMD models, the average selling price (ASP) for 64-bit Core 2 Duo notebooks is already much lower than 32-bit Core Duo models, which were priced at more than US$1,500 per unit in the beginning, according to the sources. In addition to HP's Core 2 Duo offering at US$1,054, Dell recently released an Inspiron E1405, which incorporates the Core 2 Duo T5500 processor (1.66GHz, 667MHz FSB and 2MB cache), at a suggested retail price of US$1,099.
