AMD has added a pair of Turion 64 mobile processors to its CPU line-up. Most attention appears to be focused on the top-end ML-40 chip, but there's a new MT-28 at the bottom to the range, pitching Turion into lower-priced notebooks.

The ML-40 is a 35W part, while the MT-28 consumes up to 25W. The two chips are clocked at 2.2GHz and 1.6GHz, respectively. The top-end chip contains 1MB of L2 cache, the lower-end part 512KB. Both support 400MHz DDR SDRAM.

The ML-40 comes in at $525, well above the $354 it is still charging for the previous top-of-the-range Turion chip, the ML-37. The MT-28 is priced at $159. All prices are per processor when sold in batches of 1000 chips.

HP was the first PC vendor to ship a notebook based on the ML-40, the Compaq nx6125, AMD said. Like the new Turions, the HP machine is available immediately. ®
