Turion 64: heat emission is the key
As you know, at CES 2005 AMD announced its new mobile platform, Turion 64. According to our colleagues from PC Watch, they visited a seminar held by AMD, at which the new platform details were uncovered.
So, the key feature of Turion 64 will be low energy consumption claimed to be up to 35W (for example, Pentium M dissipates 25W max., and AMD couldn´t even catch up with Intel until now). For the sake of justice, the source states that AMD actually has Mobile Sempron with 25W heat emission, but Turion 64 can become the first really competitive 64-bit platform in the portable PC market.
Turion 64 will be based on 90nm Lancaster core. Thus there´s no doubt that AMD will position Turion 64 as a rival to Sonoma which might dissipate more than 25W.
