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.
