AMD Extending 25W Turion Line

By Justin Mann on
AMD's line of mobile Athlon 64 processors, dubbed Turion 64 is being extended for both 2.0 and 2.2ghz parts. These powerful chips with a whopping 1MB L2 cache (in a mobile CPU no less) have a TDP of a mere 25W. This is less than almost all mobile processors, and a vast improvement over the Mobile AXP which came in 35W and 45W varsities. According to the article, VoodooPC will be releasing gaming-oriented (thus, performance-oriented) laptops utilizing this processor. A decent performer with power consumption this low is amazing. They're a bit costly currently, at $359 and $268 for the 2.2 and 2.0 respectively, but hopefully that will fall soon.
