AMD adds 2.2GHz Turion
AMD is expanding its mobile offerings, announcing
a new Turion 64 ML-40 processor. Although AMD's press release doesn't detail the chip's specs, PC Watch
reports that it runs at 2.2GHz and has 1MB of L2 cache. The ML-40's 2.2GHz clock speed gives it a 200MHz advantage over the next fastest Turion, the ML-37. Both chips have a 35W TDP.
Turion 64 ML-40 processors are apparently available now, and HP will be offering the chip in at least one of its notebooks. AMD is pricing the chip at $525 in 1,000-unit quantities, which is less expensive than Intel's fastest 2.13GHz Pentium M 770. However, the Pentium M 770 does boast a lower 27W TDP.
