AMD Releases Mobile Athlon 64 3700+, Speed Boost For Laptops

AMD has bolstered its laptop offerings with a new high-end 64-bit processor. The 754-pin Mobile Athlon 64 3700+ is designed for powerful, desktop replacement laptops. The chip is clocked at 2.4GHz and shares the same 1MB of L2 cache as the rest of the Mobile Athlon 64 range.

AMD has also confirmed that it has begun its shift to 90nm manufacturing (code-named Oakville), a transition that allows parts to take up about half the die space and consume about half the power of the older 130nm parts.

Systems based on the new processor will benefit from excellent 32-bit processing power, 64-bit capability and HyperTransport technology.

Pros: Top-of-the-range mobile 64-bit CPU; 90nm manufacturing
Cons: Shares the same 1MB of L2 cache as other Mobile Athlon 64s
