More important for gaming than the number of cores and threads is the clock rate. And honestly, as far as cpu speed is concerned and what I do with my laptop there isn’t a huge difference from the Turion to the i3. Trending Price New. Intel Core 2 Duo T 2. I run Windows 10 with a SSD and a TL on my personal computer, and it does just as well as my much more expensive business laptop when it comes to running applications and multi-tasking.

The introduction of Core 2 relegated the Pentium brand to the mid-range market, and reunified laptop and desktop CPU lines, which previously had been s2 into the Pentium 4, Pentium D, and Pentium M brands. Would the heat sink support the Turion?

The lithography is the semiconductor manufacturing technology being used to create the CPU – the smaller this is, the technologh transistors that can be fit into the CPU, and the closer the connections. Intel Core i5 tl-6 Hexa-core 6 Core 3. Anyway, to make a long story short I inherited the laptop and some money after trading my Core i3 laptop to my sister.

In addition to high-end multimedia, premium gaming and secure commercial notebooks, AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology is an excellent choice for a mobile workstation-class platforms which allow customers to get high performance from their and bit workstation applications. The Dell was giving her fits and I thought I could fix it, and honestly, even the Sempron would have been fine for what I use a laptop for. It gets quite hot, while mobole varies greatly by laptops, in the HP laptop idled at 52C and reached 73C when loaded.


AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-62 2.1GHz Dual-Core (TMDTL62HAX5DM) Processor

The Core microarchitecture provides more efficient decoding stages, execution units, caches, and buses, reducing the power consumption of Core 2-branded CPUs while increasing their processing capacity. Show less Show more.

It is a Dual Core processor that runs at 2. The first Turion I got didn’t work. Faster than RAM, the more cache available, the more data that can be stored for lightning-fast retrieval. Turns out the motherboard supported some dual-core cpu’s.

I ended up installing two gigs of ram, and an SSD hard drive in it. And honestly, as far as cpu speed is concerned and what I do with my laptop there isn’t a huge difference from the Turion to the i3. Bear in mind that although it is better to have a larger cache, the larger it is, the higher the latency, so a balance has to be struck.

CPU Cache and Memory. Upgraded to this dual-core Turion from a single-core Sempron in an older Dell I believe laptop. Intel Core iK Coffee Lake 3. In overall, is an old but nice chip that can give you lots of performance for very little, specially when a Turion TL 64 is much more expensive.

The gap between idle and minimal performance is quite wide, increasing the power consumption somewhat in lightly threaded applications.

This will lower your yearly electricity bill slightly, as well as prevent you from having to invest in extra cooling mechanisms unless you overclock.

These reference designs are an example of best practices in notebook PC development based on AMD and collaborative technologies. I mention this because I know the SSD was overkill 644 this machine Anyway, the the new hard drive solved the original issues.


Well, it does and where the Dell would borderline over heat with the Sempron it runs extremely cool with the Turion. This item doesn’t belong on this page.

AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology TL-62 / 2.1 GHz processor ( mobile ) Series

Intel Core iK – 3. The cpu upgrade was easily the best upgrade for the system in practically every way possible. Core 2 is a brand encompassing a range of Intel’s consumer bit x single- dual- and quad-core microprocessors based on the Core microarchitecture. AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology is the only mobile processor today that is optimized for the bit versions of the upcoming Microsoft Windows Vista operating system.

The Turion 64 X2 was launched on May 17,after several delays.

This also means it will be less likely to bottleneck more powerful GPUs, allowing them to achieve more of their gaming performance potential. The lowest-priced item that has been restored to working order by the manufacturer ‘manufacturer refurbished condition’ or an eBay seller or a third party not approved by the manufacturer ‘seller refurbished condition’.

Problematically, unless the two CPUs are from the same family, this can only serve as a general guide and nothing like an exact comparison, because the hl-62 cycles per instruction CPI will vary so much.
