AMD shows off Core Duo notebook rival

At the Distree 2006 conference AMD showed off its first dual-core mobile processor.
A bunch of AMD partners are also here showing off AMD's first dual core mobile CPU. It took some time to get it ready, as Intel has been selling its own two core offerings for some six months now, but Intel's still doesn't support 64-bit.

MSI showed us its new Turion X2 64 laptop, called the S271.

It is a 12-inch machine with the ATI integrated chipset based on a R485 M north bridge and a SB460M south bridge. The machine uses new DDR 2 memory, as the CPU is AM2-based but uses a smaller notebook socket.
