A few days ago AMD launched its new mobile platform at CES 2005 - the Turion 64.
The Japanese hardware site PC Watch was able to find some more details regarding the power usage of AMD's new platform.
The site reports that the Turion 64 will feature a low power consumption of up to 35W. To make a comparision, Intel's current Pentium M dissipates about 25W. But it is said that Intel's next-gen mobile platform, Sonoma, will probably use a little bit more power.
It looks that AMD finally managed to launch a decent mobile processor that can challenge the Intel Pentium M because of its low power usage - and thus long battery life.
