AMD pushes Mobile Duron to 1.2GHz

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) is rolling out new versions of its Mobile Duron processor, the company announced Wednesday.

The release of the latest Mobile Duron versions, which run at 1.1GHz and 1.2GHz, come a year after the company first launched the chip and hot on the heels of a 1GHz version of the chip that was announced in mid-December. With built-in power management, the chips are designed for use in notebook computers and other situations where low power consumption is important.

In addition to the Mobile Duron, AMD also offers a higher-performance Mobile Athlon processor for such applications. The two chips represent the largest competition to Intel Corp.'s Mobile Pentium III and Mobile Celeron processors.

AMD said the new chips would cost US$130 and $160 for the 1.1GHz and 1.2GHz versions, respectively, in 1,000-unit quantities. At the same time as announcing the faster chips, the company cut the price of its six-week-old 1GHz Mobile Duron to $100. When it was launched the chip cost $160.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
