Advanced Micro Devices on Tuesday said it had created yet another powerful processor for desktop replacement notebooks, the AMD Athlon 64 4000+. Additionally, the company said its high-end desktop chips were also gaining popularity in the space of top-performance mobile computers.

“The new Mobile AMD Athlon 64 processor 4000+ provides a foundation for building the fastest, most feature-rich 64-bit notebooks available today,” said Chris Cloran, director of the mobile division for AMD’s microprocessor solutions sector.

Mobile AMD Athlon 64 4000+ operates at 2.60GHz, has single-channel PC3200 memory controller as well as contains 1MB of L2 cache. The chip has thermal design power (TDP) of about 62W, which is higher compared to low-power Mobile AMD Athlon 64 and AMD Turion 64 chips that have TDP of 35W or 25W. All of mobile chips from AMD feature PowerNow! technology that reduces power consumption.

Mobile AMD Athlon 64 processors are now available in models 4000+, 3700+, 3400+, 3200+, 3000+ and 2800+. AMD does not disclose manufacturing processes it uses to make various mobile chips, but it is likely that Mobile AMD Athlon 64 4000+ is made using 90nm process technology.

Fujitsu Siemens Computers plans to incorporate the Mobile AMD Athlon 64 processor 4000+ into a new AMILO A1667G notebook, which is expected to be available next month throughout Europe.

The Mobile AMD Athlon 64 processor 4000+ is priced at $382 in 1000-unit quantities.

AMD also said that notebook manufacturers can design powerful mobile systems using AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processors or the currently fastest processor for gaming, the AMD Athlon 64 FX-57 processor. In fact, VoodooPC has recently announced a new gaming machine that offers both – the Voodoo ENVY Heavyweight u:709 notebook.
