AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-58


$110.00 Released May, 2007

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Dual-core processor makes it faster for multi-threaded programs. Wide support from a number of motherboard manufacturers. Dual memory controller mode can be used for much faster interaction with DDR2 RAM.

The Cons:Pretty old, has been replaced by several CPUs that do the same job faster at lower prices.

The AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-58 is a 1.9 GHz, dual core mobile processor based on AMD's famous K8 technology. Since an upgrade from 90-nm core composite technology to a 65-nm Silicon-Germanium based core, this line of processor has become efficient and fast enough to be the main competition for Intel based CPU's, and sometimes at better value.

Dual memory controller enables the simultaneous use of identical sticks of Ram through two streams, reducing the 'bottleneck' effect of high speed data transmission. Running multiple applications at once and gaming are also benefited from a dual core CPU.  PowerNow! is a power saving feature common to this family of processors that reduces voltage from 1.1V to 0.8V as well as reducing the clock speed to 800MHz during idle mode.
