AMD's 2.4Ghz Turion to arrive soon

By Justin Mann on December 30, 2005, 10:57 AM
AMD may be releasing the Turion 64 ML-44 soon, a beefy 2.4GHz processor with 1MB L2 cache and a TDP of 35W. Some are concerned that it may be only available to HP at first, for use in the v8000z notebook, but likely it will be widely available without too much fanfare soon. The ML-44 has been known about for a while, and AMD has lost ground to Intel recently in notebooks, moreso with dual-core Yonah being out in the wild. It will be interesting to see how the next line of Turions stack up.

I want to put one of these in my desktop. Will it be possible? Does anyone know what socket the Turion uses?

This new processor, will be expensive to say the least. AMD's products are always great to use, especially if your on a budget. This processor should be amazingly fast, and efficient.

Dual-core still is better than a turion 2.4GHZ. These are to be used in laptops mainly, since desktop user care more about performance than about power consumption. Duck, if you want to upgrade, do so with athlon or intel processor.

i am more exciting about the yonah to be honest. I really like intel has done with the mobile chip.

While the pentium m is great for battery life, and also a overall good performer, I think the turion has better performance, especially in gaming or other intensive applications, at the sacrifice of battery life. Yonah should give good competition though. I'm interested in seeing what amd's laptop dual core will do.

The Turion uses the 754 socket, but putting it into a desktop system might not be a good idea. Some mobos won't recognise it. Intel's Pentium M is great for battery life(unlike the Celeron M).Amd has Cool&Quiet but i'd still go with Intel for notebooks.

As usual, it comes down to price. I think it'll be a tad pricy and most are lookinga t duel-core and Yonah anyway...

Once it has come down in price it will be a worthy buy!
