AMD today announced the renewal of its line of Phenom processors, advancing to the three and four processing cores in the offering of chips addressed to the notebook market.
The launch is another step in the company’s competition strategy with the market leader Intel and, explains the brand, a contribution to improve the performance of applications running on laptops, reducing energy consumption.
The announcement includes three quad-core and two triple-core processors with clock speeds ranging from 1.6 GHz to 2.3 GHz, which lower the machines’ energy consumption by 25 and 45 watts.
AMD announced that between 130 and 150 products are being designed around the new processors. Dell, HP or Lenovo are some of the brands already with products confirmed for the new Phenom II. These first pieces of equipment should hit the market later this month.
The manufacturer also unveiled new Athlon and Turion for ultra notebooks. The new Athlon II Neo and Turion II Neo – with one and two processing cores – offer clock speeds between 1.3GHz and 1.7GHz.
