Notebook PCs based on the new AMD Turion 64 X2 dual-core mobile processor will be available later this quarter in designs from several computer manufacturers, according to AMD.According to AMD the new Turion 64 X2 processors promise laptop battery life of up to five hours.
The new Turion processor is based on AMD's 65nm silicon-on-insulator technology, which provides increased transistor performance, scalability and power efficiency, according to the company.
To extend battery life, AMD-based platforms using the AMD M690 chipset incorporate innovative memory technology known as display cache, designed to allow the CPU to operate in low-power mode without accessing system memory.
