AMD debuts some new 65nm Turion 64 X2 dual-core processors, DigiTimes reports:
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.
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.
According to AMD the new Turion 64 X2 processors promise laptop battery life of up to five hours.
