AMD acknowledges top-end Turion
TL-66 now on the company's price list
Hidden among AMD's big desktop processor price cuts, was the arrival on the chip maker's public price list of a new mobile CPU: the Turion 64 X2 TL-66.
The dual-core part is clocked at 2.3GHz and contains 1MB of L2 cache - 512KB per core - as per other members of the Turion X2 line-up. Like them, the new part sits on a HyperTransport clocked at 1600MHz.
The new CPU is priced at $354 when ordered in batches of 1000.
AMD formally announced the TL-66 back in May, when it unveiled a range of 65nm Turions. At the time, the 2.34GHz chip was due to go on sale at the end of the month. It may well have done, but it didn't appear on AMD's 5 June price list update. Just over a month later, it now has.
