Today's Mobile Athlon 64 microprocessors for notebooks from AMD are available in two kinds – with 62W and 35W thermal envelope. There are three flavors of powerful chips with 2800+, 3000+ and 3200+ model-numbers functioning at 1.60GHz, 1.80GHz and 2.00GHz respectively. The CPUs have 1MB of full-speed on-die L2 cache and single-channel DDR SDRAM memory controller, like the majority of other AMD Athlon 64 processors in 754-pin packaging. Additionally, AMD has two chips internally named Lancaster with lower power consumption – AMD Mobile Athlon 64 2700+ and AMD Mobile Athlon 64 2800+ – clocked at 1.60GHz with 512KB and 1MB L2 cache.
