Obviously yonah with 2x512mb ddr2 667 should perform better overall than ddr2 533.
Similar to how dothan with ddr2 533 completely smokes out dothan at same speed but ddr2-400 or ddr333 (and surprisingly many manufacturers adopted that, example: sony FS toshiba m50 etc... stupid choice for the manufactures, not to mention turbocache or hypermemory will suffer a lot as well due to slower access to system memory).
So when is the official release date for Yonah based lappy?? and where's the Part II of Yonah article??
Thanks again AT, great job.
quote:I think yonah is a nice option for low power compact notebooks. As we can see here it doesnt really compare against the desktop amd X2 parts, but will line up good against mobile duel semprons and turion right? Also to be noted is that it has a low clock speed. How will it overclock?.. this interests me greatly.
quote:First of all with AMD - X2 in these tests is basically a overvolted part.. will run just fine at 2.0Ghz with 1.15-1.2V rather than 1.4V used here, lowering power signifigantly in "X2 turion" form when it gets here.
quote:Yonah cannot be compared directly to the Turion because that is comparing a dual core CPU to a single core CPU
quote: the pin-out has been changed once more, and of course Yonah won’t even physically fit into any current Pentium M motherboards. Instead, you’ll need a brand new motherboard with a brand new chipset.
quote:Please compare Yohan with Turion and then complain.
quote:Yonah is its in own class.
quote:Further, no one seems to point it out, but does Yonah not have 64-bit extensions? If not, now that near every desktop CPU sold today has them it'd be a real shame if 64-bit Windows development gained momentum.
quote:Even "Turion Dual Core" will be behind it, because of power consumption problem
quote:Yonah will have a 49W TDP
quote:90nm 3800x2 is around 68 W
quote:its real competitors are AMD Turion and Sempron and Pentium Centrino not X2
quote:Actually, it's real competitor is the dual core Turion...I suspect we shall see AMD extend their lead into the mobile sector this next year.
quote:Well you suspect wrong, which I suspect, in your case, is quite often. First, there are no dual core Turions on the horizon
quote:AMD is not having much success in that sector because intel's platform strategy is useful for laptop builders
quote:Turion power consumption isnt quite on the same level as Dothan. They will need to move to 65nm before building Turion laptops
quote:Well... so 1.75X is interesting... without knowing what X is, we cannot draw any conclusions from your statement
quote:The one obvious issue was one the author corrected himself
quote:Laptops are about battery life and small form factor. Intel is winning there, no question about it
quote:Intel sells one helluva lot more right now...but when AMD is able to achieve design wins with laptop OEMs next year, that's expected to start to even up...
quote:I certainly DO question it...take a look at the Laptop Logic review...
quote:WRT dual core Turions on 130 nm
quote:and again are people ignoring the fact that DDR2 is giving the P-M an edge in battery life....
