AMD Adds Second Core To Turion Notebook Chip

On Wednesday, Advanced Micro Devices launched a dual-core version of its mobile Turion chip, bringing its brand of dual-core technology to thin-and-light notebooks. In addition, the company said it had begun shipping a mobile Sempron chip, upgraded to include 64-bit capabilities.

Both chips will be complemented by a forthcoming "whitebook" logo program, which will provide buyers of notebooks from resellers and second-tier vendors some assurance that the systems have met AMD's standards of quality, and can be considered viable competitors to the top-tier OEM products.

AMD's new AMD Turion 64 X2 models will range in speed from 1.6 to 2.0 GHz, using a series of abstract "model numbers" to indicate performance. Four chips were unveiled: the 1.6-GHz TL-50, the 1.6-GHz TL-52, the 1.8-GHz TL-56 and the 2.0-GHz TL-60, ranging in price from $184 to $354 in 1,000-unit lots. Prices and speeds for the new mobile Semprons were not available at press time.
