Yonah v AMD
|Yonah is gonna be way the hell better than a dual-core Turion, too.
The Duo's, or whatever Intel is calling Yonah, is not a very cool running chip. The specs I've seen are 50w under load which approaches the 68w of AMD mobile chips and is higher than the 37-40w Turions.
What Intel has done is reduce the power consumption of the total platform
(cpu+wifi+chipset) by 28%!
That is pretty impressive and its something that AMD cannot compete with since they rely on 3rd parties for supporting chips. As much as I griped about how hot Yonah would I did not expect this development. But....the laptop will still have to handle the heat from a 50w processor and a GPU....that will be interesting.
