Chip giant AMD today announced the launch of its latest line in mobile processors, its Turion Two line of dual core chips for notebooks, featuring two processors on one single dai. "The Turion Two offers up to a 40% increase for users who are multi-tasking and using memory intensive applications through higher throughput and better range," said John B. Lowry, ODM and APAC mobile business development department at AMD Far East. Further closing the digital divide between notebook and desktop functionality, the Turion Two processors operate on AMD's 'direct connect' architecture which eliminates the front-side bus from the computer. AMD says this enables the computer to execute a much greater number of processes than previous technology allowed. "The mobile segment is growing so fast and notebooks offer many more ASPs while their prices are becoming more and more affordable for the everyday user. With the Turion chips we are now offering comparable performance to a desktop, and the ability to use the same applications as desktops," said Bahr Mahony, director mobile division, microprocessor solutions sector at AMD "It is clear that we are offering a performance level that out competitors cannot even reach. This technology is 64-bit, which our main competitor doesn't even offer," added Mahony.
