AMD Turion X2 RM-72

$225.00 Released October, 2008

The Pros:Dual memory controller reduces bottleneck effect when using identical DDR2 RAM. Improved efficiency over X2 TL line.

The AMD Turion X2 RM-72 is a 2.1GHz dual core mobile computer processor. Based on the popular X2 TL line, this series adds improved efficiency and less heat dissipation with two new features. A deep sleep state which is similar to AMD's PowerNow! can reduce CPU speed during idle time while independent core speed throttling enables each core to instantly reduce it's speed regardless of the other.

This combined with the AMD 65nm Silicon-Germanium core structure has improved an already top selling processor and kept it's place as the main competition for Intel mobile processors. The Turion Ultra line, which was released at the same time, is AMD's professional spec CPU that has more muscle for intensive applications and multi tasking. As with the entire Turion line, a dual memory controller enables access to two streams of RAM  at once(when using identical DDR2 RAM) which reduces bottleneck effect.
