Advanced Micro Devices has released a new pair of mobile Turion 64-bit processors for thin and lightweight notebooks,...
to further challenge Intel in this market.
The AMD MT-40 and MT-37 are high-end chips that run at only 25 watts, hence consuming less power and allowing more expensive lightweight notebooks to run longer.
AMD already supplies the ML range of processors, which are designed for faster notebooks and which run at 35 watts.
The thin and lightweight notebook processor market has previously been dominated by Intel’s Pentium M processor, so this launch forms part of AMD’s continuing challenge to its bigger rival.
