The story's source said the Turion 64 X2's are codenamed 'Taylor' and will support 667MHz DDR 2 SDRAM. They have 256KB of L2 cache per core, though AMD will also offer a 512KB cache-per-core variant, dubbed 'Trinidad', and a single-core version called 'Keene'.Support for 800MHZ DDR2 memory is ought to be added in the first half of next year.
Both chips will sit on Socket S1 motherboards, and since AMD's other next-generation, DDR 2-supporting CPU interconnects, one for servers, the other for desktops, are believed to be coming in June, it doesn't require a big leap of the imagination to see the chip maker deciding to release the mobile version in the same timeframe.
