AMD Introduces First 64-Bit Dual-Core Mobile Processor


AMD today introduced AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology, the first and only family of 64-bit dual-core processors designed for thin and light notebook PCs.

AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology allows people to get more from their mobile lifestyle through long battery life and high performance, even when using multiple applications simultaneously, including demanding digital media applications.

AMD also is bringing 64-bit computing to the Mobile AMD Sempron processor family.

AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology-based notebooks promise outstanding graphics and leading wireless solutions for a visually engaging experience, and high-speed connectivity throughout the home or office.

AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology is based on the same Direct Connect Architecture featured in the AMD Opteron and AMD Athlon 64 X2 processors, providing high-speed links between cores, memory and I/O for increased system performance. The advanced feature set of AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology also includes:

- Multi-core Power Management, enabling reduced power consumption for extended battery life;

- AMD Digital Media Xpress for accelerated image processing, audio and video encoding and decoding, 3D graphic rendering;

and

- AMD Virtualization, providing improved performance, reliability, and security for virtualized environments.

Business professionals and consumers worldwide can expect to see notebooks based on AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology in retail stores and through commercial distribution channels this quarter.

Systems are initially expected from Acer, ASUS, BenQ, Flocity, FSC, Fujitsu, Gateway, HP, MSI, NEC, Packard Bell, Sotec and TongFang.

AMD also has taken the next step in the evolution of its open platform approach by collaborating with ATI Technologies and NVIDIA to deliver mobile reference designs based on leading, open industry-standard technologies.

These reference designs are an example of best practices in notebook PC development based on AMD and collaborative technologies.

The reference designs help ensure AMD customers get to market more quickly, and also help reduce platform development costs.

AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology is optimized for the 64-bit versions of the upcoming Microsoft Windows Vista operating system.

AMD has worked closely with Microsoft to identify and develop key hardware components in support of Microsoft Windows Vista, the next generation Windows operating system.

AMD Turion 64 X2 models TL-50, TL-52, TL-56 and TL-60 are available immediately worldwide. The AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology family ranges from $184-$354 in 1K-unit quantities.
