Default AMD Quietly Returns Athlon 64 Chips to Mobile Lineup

In a bid to boost sales of its mobile central processing units (CPUs), Advanced Micro Devices has quietly returned Athlon 64-branded chips into its mobile family. The new chips feature lower performance compared to AMD Turion 64 X2, but still feature two processing engines, thus, cannot be sold under AMD Sempron trade-mark.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 TK processors are specifically designed for notebooks, as they feature S1 form-factor, have thermal design power of just 31W and are produced using 65nm process technology. The chips have 512KB of secondary-level cache (256KB per core), two times less compared to currently available AMD Turion 64 X2 processors, meaning that they also feature lower performance compared to the Turion dual-core chips.
