DUAL-CORE PROCESSORS

· AMD® TurionTM 64x2 Mobile Technology ­

­ AMD TurionTM 64 X2 mobile technology is AMD's premier dual-core processor made for mobility. The processor design allows for two cores on one processor die, which is like having two processors in your notebook PC. AMD TurionTM 64 X2 mobile technology is ideal for a wide range of business professionals and consumers, from the business consultant or true road warrior--to the digital media enthusiast or tech savvy consumer, both of whom need the power of dual-core and the ability to multi-task while on the go.

· What Is Dual-Core Technology?

­ AMD TurionTM 64 X2 mobile technology has been designed to address a key issue with computing today--the increased need for PC processors to deal with multiple threads of information simultaneously. This need manifests itself in the increasing tendency of mobile PC users to run multiple programs at once, either to multi-task or to protect their computers with antivirus/ firewall software in the background while running applications in the foreground. In addition, more software, especially in the digital media and content creation space, is being written so that different aspects of the software can access the processor at the same time. This type of software is called "multi-threaded" software. ­ Dual-core processors contain two cores, residing on one chip, that perform calculations on two streams of data simultaneously. Additionally, the AMD64 architecture contains AMD's innovative Direct Connect Architecture which was created with multi-core in mind, providing superior system performance due to a direct, highspeed link between the cores within the same processor. ­ AMD TurionTM 64 X2 mobile technology can outperform similar single-core processors on most multi-tasking and digital media applications.
