Turion 64 X2 delayed?
"Sources close to AMD" have been quoted as saying that the Turion 64 X2 has been delayed until June
from its previously expected launch date of May 9. The Turion 64 X2 is AMD's upcoming dual-core mobile processor, and is slated to compete against Intel's Core Duo. AMD will launch seven flavors
of the new chip, with 512KB "Trinidad" and 256KB "Taylor" variants, the former reportedly sporting a 35W power envelope. The new Turions should also support DDR2-667 memory and be designed for AMD's upcoming 638-pin Socket S1. AMD may be
planning to synchronize the launch of the Turion 64 X2 with that of its upcoming Socket AM2 Athlon 64 X2s chips, which are expected to be introduced on June 6 at Computex in Taipei.
