AMD is boasting its next-generation 65nm AMD Turion 64 X2 dual-core mobile processor as providing increased transistor performance, scalability and power efficiency. Notebook PCs based on the new AMD Turion 64 X2 dual-core mobile processor will be available later this quarter in designs from several computer manufacturers. To extend battery life, AMD-based platforms using the AMD M690 chipset incorporate innovative memory technology known as display cache, designed to allow the CPU to operate in low-power mode without accessing system memory. This coupled with the new 65nm process design of the AMD Turion 64 X2 dual-core mobile processor extends battery life to five hours, the company noted.
