AMD’s Centrino challenger: Turion

Filed under: — Aviran Mordo

Turion is the brand name of a new line of energy-efficient notebook processors Advanced Micro Devices will come out with in the first half of 2005. It is chipmaker’s response to Intel’s Centrino notebook technology, company executives said at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week.

While the company did not reveal any technical specifications on the chip, AMD said Turion will fit into thin and light notebooks and be optimized for extending battery power. Currently, AMD mostly sells notebook chips for “performance” notebooks, which provide desktoplike computing power but can sap batteries and generate heat.
