And two low voltage babies
Tue Jun 17 2003, 11:58
CHIP FIRM Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) said it has introduced three notebook chips, each of which has 512K of level two cache.

Two of the XP-M processors are low voltage CPUs with PR ratings of 2000+ and 1900+, and the firm said they're compatible with 802.11a, b and g.

The third processor is an XP-M 2800+, aimed at the full size notebook market.

UK firm Time will use the 2800+ in its range of Traveller notebooks from today. Other wins for AMD include Fujitsu, which will offer a low voltage 1900+ in its S2000 notebook.

AMD said the chips are available now. The low voltage babies cost $134 and $123 for the 2000+ and 1900+ speeds, while the 2800+ desknote suitable chip costs $230.

The firm has adjusted some of its notebook chip pricing to reflect the introduction of the processors. µ
