All Turion Models

Turion 64 Models

Originally released to be Pentium M’s main competitor, Turion from AMD is a low voltage CPU targeted to the mobile market and is available in two flavors: single core (Turion 64 or simply Turion) or dual-core (Turion 64 X2, Turion X2 or Turion X2 Ultra). In this tutorial we will list all models released so far and the differences between them.

Let's talk about the single-core Turion first. We will be covering dual-core models on next pages. 

Turion 64 is based on Athlon 64’s architecture, and the main difference between Turion 64 and Athlon 64 Mobile is the power consumption, which is lower on Turion 64: Athlon 64 Mobile dissipates 65 W while Turion 64 dissipates only 35 W (ML models) or 25 W (MT models). Another difference between them is the amount of L2 cache, which is always of 1 MB on Athlon 64 Mobile, while Turion 64 can have a L2 memory cache of 512 KB or 1 MB, depending on the model.

Both CPUs feature AMD’s PowerNow! Technology, which is similar to Cool’n’Quiet technology used by desktops. This technology changes de CPU clock rate and voltage depending on CPU usage, in order to save battery life. As you can see, it competes with Intel’s Enhanced SpeedStep technology.

Turion 64 main features include:

As mentioned, Turion 64 CPUs are available in two series: ML, which has a maximum power dissipation (TDP, Thermal Design Power) of 35 W, and MT, which has a maximum power dissipation of 25 W. The lower the power, the longer your notebook battery will last and less heat will be produced.

TDP stands for Thermal Design Power and indicates the CPU thermal dissipation, i.e., the CPU cooler must be capable of dissipating at least this amount of heat.

Turion X2 Models

AMD uses four different names for the dual-core version of Turion: Turion 64 X2 (models starting with "TL"), Turion X2 (models starting with "RM"), Turion X2 Ultra (models starting with "ZM") and Turion Neo X2 (model with "L"). Despite the name, they are all the same processor. The main differences between these CPUs and the original Turion 64 is the presence of two processing cores, of course, and the support for DDR2 memory modules under dual-channel configuration, meaning that the CPU can access the memory at 128-bit rate, doubling the memory maximum theoretical transfer rate (single-core Turion 64 models based on socket S1 also support DDR2 memories under dual-channel configuration).

While Turion 64 competes with Pentium M and Core Solo, Turion 64 X2 competes with Core Duo and Core 2 Duo.

Turion X2 has the same features found on Turion 64 plus:
