AMD has launched its Turion 64 processor family for high-end laptops, to compete against Intel’s established Pentium M processor.

AMD Turion 64 is designed for thinner and lighter notebook PCs and delivers longer battery life, enhanced security, and compatibility with the latest graphics and wireless products.

"We have unleashed 64-bit mobile performance, allowing business professionals and on-the-go consumers to explore the freedom of mobile productivity with AMD Turion 64 mobile technology," said Marty Seyer, AMD corporate vice-president and general manager for the microprocessor business unit.

Fujitsu Siemens, Acer, BenQ and Packard Bell are among the first PC manufacturers planning to use Turion in their machines.

Intel’s Pentium M processor is part of the established Intel Centrino chipset which was launched more than two years ago to make laptop wireless communications easier.
