AMD Turion 64 X2 to get a die shrink

Posted on Wednesday, April 11 2007 @ 17:07:53 CEST by

AMD's mobile Turion 64 X2 will get a die shrink to 65nm to compete with the new Intel Santa Rosa platform.

We can soon expect a new AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-66 processor with 2.3GHz clockspeed, 2x 512KB L2 cache, DDR2 800MHz memory support and a TDP of 35W.
In addition to the new high speed model, 4 of the existing 90nm Turion X2 will start fabricating in 65nm. They include: Turion64 X2 TL-64 (2.2GHz/512KB L2 x 2/35W TDP), TL-60(2.0GHz/512KB L2 x2/31W TDP), TL-58(1.9GHz/512KB L2 x2/31W TDP), and TL-56(1.8GHz/512KB L2 x2/31W TDP). Besides the change in fabrication process, these models also feature an upgrade to DDR2-800 dual channel memory module support and a lower TDP at 31W.

To be ready to complete with Intel Santa Rosa, our source told us AMD is currently planning a big price cut and a chipset Bundle promotion program. Market analyst generally believes that AMD’s laptop processor remains weak in sales until the launch of next-generation Griffin in early 2008. Since there is no more new model to be released after TL-66 in this year, perhaps price cut is the last weapon AMD could resist the invasion from Santa Rosa.
