AMD Turion MT Series chips launched

The two new AMD Turion MT series chips are meant for serious gamers.


24 Aug, 2005: AMD (Advanced Micro Devices) has introduced two new chips meant for active gamers. AMD has priced the two chips - The Turion MT-40 and MT-37 to PC makers for $359 and $268, respectively, in bulk amounts. 

VoodooPC, a longtime supporter of AMD will use these chips in a pair of laptops outfitted specially for active gamers. Following the move by VoodooPC, other notebook manufacturers such as Acer are expected to follow the same way.

For thinner and lighter notebooks, AMD has 12 64-bit Turion processors including three ML-series and seven MT-series chips. With the introduction of Turion series, the chipmaker hopes to increase the battery life than its Athlon mobile series. 

The main competition for AMD's Turion series comes from Intel's Centrino-based mobile Pentium chips, which include Intel's consumer-focused notebook platform, previously code-named Sonoma.

The AMD chips were released just before this week's Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco. With the introduction of new chips, AMD is trying to steal the thunder from Intel's shows.

AMD's market share in servers rose to 11.2 percent recently, marking the first time the company passed the 10 percent milestone. 

Both Intel and AMD had drastically reduced their prices on their more popular processors earlier this month to spur the coming season sales.
