The Turion II P520 dual-core CPU
was developed by AMD
to deliver just the right performance in the notebook
. The basis for this is the K10 microarchitecture, whereby Champlain was used as the code name. The used processor
is technically sound, so it can be easily used to upgrade and repair a compatible device.
performance, the two cores of the AMD
Turion II P520 operate at 2.3 GHz and 2 MB L2 cache (1 MB per core). A 533 MHz
controller is also integrated, giving the CPU
a solid overall performance. Of course, it supports the 64-bit instruction set equally.
However, the AMD
Turion II P520 uses many other technologies, including VT for virtualization and EVP for increased security. Furthermore, the low power loss of a maximum of 25 watts (TDP) is an adva
ntage, since the battery life of the mobile device can be lower.
Turion II P520 dual-core processor
is mounted in socket S1 (S1g4), which therefore must be ava
ilable on the motherboard
. Look in this regard best in the manual or the other manufacturer information of your notebook
for the appropriate information. A heat sink is not included as it is always adapted to the device.
