AMD Turion based notebooks to get 5-hour battery life

Posted on Monday, March 19 2007 @ 00:06:04 CET by


Intel's fourth-generation Santa Rose Centrino platform will arrive in May, but AMD also has some new chips for the mobile front. DailyTech unveils notebooks with AMD Turion will get a battery life of more than 5 hours:
AMD guidance specifically details the transition from its 90nm to 65nm, in addition to the advances of the RS690 chipset, will boost Turion notebook battery life from 4 hours to in excess of 5 hours.

In 2008 AMD will reveal its Griffin-family of CPUs. AMD guidance claims these CPUs are built from the ground up to utilize mobile technology, though the processors have been on AMD's roadmap for more than a year as Greyhound derivatives. The first of these, Lion, will replace Tyler in the first half of 2008. The low-cost Sable will replace Sherman on the Sempron platform.

All of the Griffin processors will utilize HyperTransport 3 and 65nm SOI. A cornerstone of the K10 (previously dubbed K8L) architecture is split power planes -- the CPU can dynamically adjust p-states on individual cores or the integrated northbridge. Currently no commercial processors can do this sort of power management, which has potential to save big on power consumption.
