Turion 64 X2 adoption speedier than expected

— 11:06 AM on August 16, 2006

AMD believes its dual-core mobile chip, the Turion 64 X2, will replace the single core Turion 64 faster than expected, a report by DigiTimes claims. In Taiwan, AMD expects the Turion 64 X2 to be in more than half of all Turion-based notebooks by the end of the year. HP says its Turion 64 X2 notebooks already make up 60-70% of its Taiwanese AMD-based notebook sales, and Acer plans to add two new Turion 64 X2 notebooks to its Taiwanese lineup. DigiTimes doesn't reveal any numbers for the United States, but considering Dell and AMD representatives have both confirmed that Dell notebooks with Turion 64 X2 processors are due out in October, the chips might not end up doing too badly in the U.S. by the end of the year.
