Low-Power Mobile Athlon 64 Planned

AMD’s products currently appeal only to the upper segments, such as the desktop replacement and thin-and-light market. The company has little to offer when it comes to the emerging segment of small notebooks which are dominated by Intel processors.

This scenario could change soon. A PDF document which apparently was accidentally published on AMD’s website reveals plans for a “Mobile Athlon 64 2700+”. Dated “April 2004”, this chip is placed on the lower end of the performance range of the product family. According to the specifications, it nearly cuts the power consumption of other Mobile Athlon 64 chips in half.
