 18.05.2006   AMD annuncia i processori dual-core Turion 64 X2

AMD ha presentanto ufficialmente la sua nuova linea di processori dual-core per computer mobile: si tratta delle cpu a 64 bit siglate Turion 64 X2 in grado, in accordo al comunicato stampa del chip-maker di seguito allegato, di garantire da un lato un basso consumo di potenza, con conseguente ampia durata della carica della batteria, e dal'altro l'elevato livello prestazionale in multi-tasking richiesto dalle applicazioni odierne.

Al pari degli Operon e dei Athlon 64 X2, i Turion 64 X2 supportano l'architettura Direct Connect che incrementa le performance del sistema mediante la velocizzazione del collegamento tra cpu, memoria e I/O.

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- May 17, 2006 --AMD (NYSE: AMD) today introduced AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology, the first and only family of 64-bit dual-core processors designed for thin and light notebook PCs. AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology allows people to get more from their mobile lifestyle through long battery life and outstanding performance, even when using multiple applications simultaneously, including demanding digital media applications.

Continuing its technology leadership, AMD also is bringing 64-bit computing to the Mobile AMD Sempron processor family. Now AMD delivers the only complete mobile product portfolio offering the ability to seamlessly transition between 32- and 64-bit computing.

“AMD is first to market with the only 64-bit dual-core mobile processor, driving the wave of next-generation mobile platforms that are ready today to run the upcoming 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows Vista,” said Chris Cloran, vice president, AMD Mobile Division. “This is advanced mobile technology for the office or home, packing dual-core processing for extreme multi-tasking, 64-bit computing, extended battery life and cutting-edge technology from industry leaders in wireless, connectivity and graphics.”

Using an open standards-based approach, AMD collaborates with industry leaders in graphics and wireless solutions to enable OEM customers to deliver feature-rich notebooks that stand out from the crowd of overly standardized choices. AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology-based notebooks will offer outstanding graphics and leading wireless solutions for a visually engaging experience, and high-speed connectivity throughout the home or office.

"AMD dual-core technology will help provide HP consumer and commercial notebook customers the freedom to work and play virtually anytime, anywhere," said Ted Clark, senior vice president and general manager, Notebook Global Business Unit, HP. "Our consumer notebooks based on AMD's Turion 64 X2 mobile technology, including the latest HP Pavilion and Compaq Presario models, offer outstanding performance, mobile entertainment and a stylish new look."

AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology is based on the same industry-leading Direct Connect Architecture featured in the AMD Opteron and AMD Athlon 64 X2 processors, providing high-speed links between cores, memory and I/O for increased system performance. The advanced feature set of AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology also includes:

  • Multi-core Power Management, enabling reduced power consumption for extended battery life;
  • AMD Digital Media Xpress for accelerated image processing, audio and video encoding and decoding, 3D graphic rendering; and
  • AMD Virtualization, providing improved performance, reliability, and security for virtualized environments.
Business professionals and consumers worldwide can expect to see notebooks based on AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology in retail stores and through commercial distribution channels this quarter. Systems are initially expected from Acer, ASUS, BenQ, Flocity, FSC, Fujitsu, Gateway, HP, MSI, NEC, Packard Bell, Sotec and TongFang.

AMD also has taken the next step in the evolution of its open platform approach by collaborating with ATI Technologies Inc. and NVIDIA Corporation to deliver mobile reference designs based on leading, open industry-standard technologies. These reference designs are an example of best practices in notebook PC development based on AMD and collaborative technologies. The reference designs help ensure AMD customers get to market more quickly, and also help reduce platform development costs.

AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology is the only mobile processor today that is optimized for the 64-bit versions of the upcoming Microsoft Windows Vista operating system. AMD has worked closely with Microsoft to identify and develop key hardware components in support of Microsoft Windows Vista, the next generation Windows® operating system. In addition to high-end multimedia, premium gaming and secure commercial notebooks, AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology is an excellent choice for a mobile workstation-class platforms which allow customers to get high performance from their 32- and 64-bit workstation applications.

“In support of the design of Windows Vista, it is crucial to choose processors that will provide an optimal experience for the various ways in which notebooks are used,” said Mika Krammer, director, Windows Client Mobility Group. “The new and powerful AMD Turion 64 dual-core mobile technology is an excellent choice for Windows Vista.”

Extending AMD CSIP Program
With the introduction of AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology, AMD commenced the next stability period of its Mobile Commercial Stable Image Platform program. This provides OEMs a 15-month disk image stability period for improved system manageability. Industry-leading chipset providers for this program include ATI, NVIDIA, Atheros and Broadcom.

Expanding Mobile Channel Initiatives
AMD also is expanding its Mobile WOF (Processor in a Box/Without a Fan) offering to include AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology processors. With the availability of AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology in WOF, distributors and solution providers now have choice and flexibility when building platforms to better address the needs of their customers.

Additionally, AMD plans to work with select Original Design Manufacturers (ODM) and the channel ecosystem to deliver a broad portfolio of AMD validated, fully-configured whitebooks to small OEMs and through distribution. By offering easier access to AMD mobile technology and a broad portfolio of quality AMD-based whitebooks, the channel is able to offer their customers a richer set of differentiated solutions.
