Notebooks: AMD vs Intel

Posted on Monday, Jul 25 2005 @ 18:29 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck

ZD Net took a look at ten notebooks based on both AMD and Intel processors. They compared the Acer TravelMate 4150LMi, Asus A6000, Asus W5000A, Dell Latitude D610, HP NC8230, LG LW60 Express, MSI Megabook S260, MSI Megabook S270, Samsung M40 plus, and the Toshiba Tecra M3. Here's a short snip:
For this series of tests we wanted to pit the fastest mobile Intel offering against the fastest mobile AMD offering. We asked the vendors to supply the following: One notebook PC equipped with an AMD processor (we suggested either a Mobile Athlon 64 or Turion 64) and/or one notebook PC equipped with an Intel Pentium M processor (we suggested Pentium M 533Mhz FSB and 2MB of L2 cache). The notebook must also be configured with 512MB SDRAM. We actually received products with three distinct chipsets..
