AMD Sets Up Low-Power CPU Storm: Mobile Athlon 64 Roadmap Unveiled
A forum member over amd64notebooks.com web-site has posted a slide presumably from an Advanced Micro Devices’ roadmap concerning the future of the company’s low-power offerings, revealing expansion of AMD’s chips with 25W and 35W power consumption.
64-bit Notebooks Looming
Today’s Mobile Athlon 64 microprocessors for notebooks from AMD are available in two kinds – with 62W and 35W thermal envelope. There are three flavors of powerful chips with 2800+, 3000+ and 3200+ model-numbers functioning at 1.60GHz, 1.80GHz and 2.00GHz respectively. The CPUs have 1MB of full-speed on-die L2 cache and single-channel DDR SDRAM memory controller, like the majority of other AMD Athlon 64 processors in 754-pin packaging. Additionally, AMD has two chips internally named Lancaster with lower power consumption – AMD Mobile Athlon 64 2700+ and AMD Mobile Athlon 64 2800+ – clocked at 1.60GHz with 512KB and 1MB L2 cache.
A number of notebook designers released AMD Mobile Athlon 64-based notebooks, including names like eMachines (Gateway), despite of relatively high consumption of power by the higher-end models.
Mobile AMD Athlon 64 chips with thermal design power at about 62W will continue evolution as expected, but AMD seems to extremely serious about the low-voltage 64-bit processors, according to the leaked roadmap.
