AMD unveiled today its fastest processors for mobile computers, the DTR Athlon XP-M 2800+. In addition, the company announced two more low voltage Athlon XP-M processors for thin and light notebooks. All CPUs are based on Barton core and feature 512KB of L2 cache.

AMD did not announce any precise details of AMD Athlon XP-M 1900+ and 2000+ processors with low voltage, for example core-speed and power consumption. We may expect them to consume not a lot of energy due to 0.13 micro manufacturing process and not really high core-clock speed. Since there are no mobile platforms to support Athlon XP-M processors with 333MHz EV-6 bus, I believe it still utilises 266MHz FSB and its core-clock is the same as the core-clock of the recently launched Athlon MP 2800+ processor for servers and workstations: 2133MHz.

The low-voltage mobile AMD Athlon XP-M processors 2000+ and 1900+, designed for thin-and-light notebooks, and the mobile AMD Athlon XP-M processor 2800+, designed for desktop replacement notebooks, are available immediately worldwide. Fujitsu PC Corporation and Time Computers already announced that they have started to incorporate AMD’s new mobile chips in notebooks.

The new low-voltage mobile AMD Athlon XP-M processors 2000+ and 1900+ are priced at $134 and $123, respectively. The mobile AMD Athlon XP-M processor 2800+ for desktop replacement notebooks is priced at $230. All other prices unchanged.
