A Look Ahead at AMD's Upcoming Mobile CPU Lineup

Paul Lilly

AMD has suggested that it wants to be a bigger player in the mobile space, and to help do that, the Santa Clara chip maker is getting ready to release a handful of triple- and quad-core mobile processors.

In addition to the Phenom II X4 N930 clocked at 2.1GHz, AMD plans to release at least three other Phenom II X4 chips. One of them will be the P920, a 1.6GHz part that consumes just 25W of power. Higher up the performance totem pole, AMD will offer the X930 Black Edition processor. This one will come clocked at 2.3GHz and consume 45W of power, making it better suited for bigger laptops and desktop replacements.

As for the company's tri-core plans, AMD will introduce the Phenom II X3 P830, a 1.8GHz part with a 25W TDP. That's 300MHz slower than the N830, which carries a 35W TDP.

AMD will also release a handful of dual-core chips, including the Phenom II N620 (2.8Ghz, 35W), Phenom II X620 Black Edition (3.1Ghz, 45W), Turion II P520 (2.3GHz, 1MB L2 cache per core, 25W), Turion II N530 (2.5GHz, 1MB L2 cache per core, 25W), Athlon II P320 (2.1GHz, 512K per core, 25W), and N330 (2.3GHz, 512K per core, 35W).
