MSI Shows Off Dual-Core AMD Turion 64
For the first time ever Advanced Micro Devices has its own booth at CeBIT. Previously the company only rented special meeting rooms, but this year the firm decided to build its own booth in Hall 2, the one that people who enter using the main entrance see first. This emphasizes the tremendous success that the new processors from AMD have. The chips outperform competing products from Intel nearly across the board and people know that! The increments in market share and profit margins allow AMD to launch more aggressive marketing campaigns, a booth at CeBIT is a part of that.
But even despite of notable success, AMD is not publicly discussing products that are yet to come. However, it does not mean that the company does not have them: it has and it has them nearly ready to be shipped. Within several weeks from now AMD will release its dual-core mobile processor and at CeBIT we can find some notebooks equipped with the chip that no one wants to talk about.
MicroStar International is showcasing its new Mega Book S271 notebook with dual-core AMD Turion 64 processor. The company does not say it directly, but demos the product under “AMD new mobile technology” moniker.
The chip, in fact, has two cores and operates at 1.60GHz, according to Microsoft Windows’ control panel. The new processor does not consume a lot of energy and operates at 1.1V voltage, which allows it to be integrated into 12.1” notebook. The S271 machine also sports 802.11b/g Wi-Fi module, Bluetooth connectivity and Gigabit Ethernet. The laptop is based on the Radeon Xpress 200p chipset from ATI Technologies, which is pretty common for AMD-based notebooks.
Stay tuned with X-bit labs, because we have more interesting news and product views to share!
