AMD confirms dual core Turions ahead
CHIP FIRM AMD wasn't showing off any Turion machines on its stand here today, but a few others were, including Acer, Fujitsu and MSI, the firm said.
But over a chat it emerged that as we've reported several times before, AMD will introduce a dual core Turion, but after its released notebook and desktop machines.
Jan Gutter, a marketing manager based in Munich, also explained AMD's logic behind the somewhat byzantine numbering scheme using Ms and Ls and Ts.
Essentially, those models having the same number at the end will have the same performance, although the decision to start near the middle of the alphabet appears to be a somewhat arbitrary decision.
The T in MT stands for the 25 wattage that these processors have. The ML series function at 35 watts.
Explained Gutter: We need an additional brand, people understand Athlon 64 is a performance brand but we needed another brand for the mobility story. The Turion 64 is for the thin and light market and this is the distinction in the positioning. The underlying architecture is still AMD64 including Powernow, enhanced and the other features, he said.
He added: It's on our roadmap to have a dual core notebook chip. Opteron processors will be the middle of this year, then the desktop, then the notebook.
He said: We think the enterprise space makes the most sense at first because the applications need it. For the desktop you'll see most benefit from multimedia which is why we've positioned it this way.
