This processor family started in 2005 with the production of the Turion 64 In general, the processors are based on the CPUs for desktop computers. However, they were adjusted in the manufacturing, and other properties specific to the mobile application in the notebook. Many features that were previously available only on the stationary computer, but were taken over and thus give also the notebooks more performance. Since AMD leaves the choice of the other components for the most part open, will find many of these processors, their place in the notebooks from different manufacturers. To give you the option of the notebook to increase the power by replacing the CPU, we carry a wide variety of refurbished processors in our range. These are very cost effective as they are ready to make your notebook to new applications and can save you the change to a completely new system.

Processor families of the Turion series

Turion II

These are the latest models of the brand Turion. They were produced for notebooks with S1 socket and have 2 cores with up to 2.7 GHz clock frequency. As the constitution they are largely identical to the Athlon II processors. However, the thermal dissipation is reduced to 35 W in order to achieve the suitability for notebooks. The initial models were working exclusively with DDR2 memory. AMD did, however, newer models on the market that also support DDR3 memory. This can be distinguished in the model name by the P and N, respectively. These processors can be used, of course, operating systems and virtualization (AMD-V) support also fully 64-bit. For particularly efficient appliances, such as Netbooks, also the offshoot with the suffix neo was made, which only has a power of 15 W.

Turion X2 / X2 Ultra

Here is it the further development of the Turion 64 X2 processors. However, they were adjusted by optimizing the use of the notebook. Therefore, the functions have been developed and improved to reduce power consumption. Also they are characterized by additional properties, such as HyperTransport 3.0, slightly faster than their predecessors. The clock frequency of the two cores is not more than 2.3 Ghz. The Ultra version offers still more 100MHz and has 1 MB cache, instead of 0.5 MB for the standard version, per core. For notebooks the higher price segment and for more demanding tasks, therefore, the Ultra version was used.

Turion 64/64 X2

The Turion 64 processors were the first who bore the name Turion and were manufactured for Socket 754 and S1. The models for the two bases differ from each other in two basic properties. Both the use of DDR2 memory, as well as support for virtualization with AMD-V only offer the CPUs for the S1 socket. Otherwise they are very similar in properties. So both are available with up to 2.2 GHz clock speed and work with a 0.5 to 1.0 MB of cache. The immediate successor Turion 64 X2 was produced exclusively for Socket S1. However, it provides more computing power, because he has first 2 CPU cores that are clocked at a maximum of 2.4 GHz.
