AMD ships 800MHz Mobile Duron

AMD has an 800MHz Mobile Duron in the works - according to Sony.

The Japanese giant yesterday announced the latest additions to its Vaio notebook line, one of which sports "the new 800MHz AMD Duron mobile processor" with a 200MHz frontside bus, 128KB L1 cache and 64KB of on-die L2 cache. The machine contain the 800MHz part, the Vaio FX210, is due to ship early May.

With the next-generation Duron - codenamed Morgan - not due until Q3 and clocked at 950MHz - it seems unlikely the part Sony mentions contains a Morgan core. The current Mobile Duron was launched in January at 600MHz and 700MHz.

Sony claims the machine has a 1-2 hour battery life, which is rather less than the 2.5-3.5 hours' life the company claims the 800MHz Mobile Pentium III-based Vaio FX170 offers. Again, that points to AMD's current Mobile Duron core - which is a standard Duron running at a lowered voltage - rather than Morgan. ®
