AMD introduced a range of microprocessors for notebook computers called Turion but did not give any technical details of the processors or explain how they differ from its existing ranges of processors. Turion line is a 64-bit processor aimed at “thin and light” notebooks and at competing with Intel’s Centrino. Notebooks sporting the new processor would be available by mid-year. Turion notebooks will be marketed for the consumer and business market. The company will also continue to produce the Athlon 64 mobile chips as well as budget Sempron notebook processors. In contrast to Intel, AMD will not make and promote a bundle of chips to go with Turion. Third-party providers like Broadcom will provide those additional chip.
