AMD Turion 64 Processors

The Turion 64 and Turion 64 X2 processors compete with Intel's mobile processors, initially the Pentium M and currently both of the Intel Core processors.

Turion 64 processors (but not Turion 64 X2 processors) are compatible with AMD's Socket 754 and are equipped with 512 or 1024 KiB of L2 cache, a 64-bit single channel on-die memory controller, and an 800MHz HyperTransport bus. Battery saving features, like PowerNow! (Cool'n'Quiet), are central to the marketing and usefulness of these CPUs.
