Default amd turion fun

While roaming for a cheap Core Duo chip to upgrade my HTPC, I stumbled upon AMD's - low power - Turion. I was very happy with my Pentium M Celeron 1.4Ghz dothan, but it's nearly impossible to find a PCIX motherboard for the pentium m, and i wanted to buy a new videocard.

The Turion produces equal amount of heat (25 watts), is cheaper (the MT-30 costed me 150 euros) and best of all, it fits a cheap s754 motherboard, which is widely avaible and offers PCIX.


Has anyone got experience overclocking the Turion? I've got a MT-30 (1.6Ghz, 25W, 1mb l2) and Asus NF4 motherboard, how high should i be able to overclock it?

Does anyone know whether the soon-to-be-released A64 X2 will be s754 too?

I don't think there will be dual core S754 CPU's, the current product line will be EOF in about a year I think with no new products for those sockets; everything is moving to AM2, including the budget models and the low-power versions

Ah right, i've seen they also anounced the 'socket s1' for the new A64 Turion X2.

Bad luck for me, but i think a 2ghz A64 will get me around for at least a year, and then I can hop on the conroe/merom train. : )

Anyone got overclocking experience with the turion?
