AMD Turion II Neo K625 dual core processor
AMD Turion II Neo K625 dual core processor has been powering several newer notebook including e.g. Toshiba Satellite T235D-S1345WH, Acer Aspire AS1551-5448 and the Toshiba Satellite T235D-S1345RD -a 13.3-Inch screen notebook.
The Turion II Neo K625 is a dual core processor and has an operating frequency of 1.5 GHz. It has a low TDP ( Thermal Design Power) rating of 15 Watts, that enables notebook manufacturers design small and long battery life notebook and net books. The AMD Turion II Neo K625 has 1 MB of L2 cache, which makes the most recently referred memory transfers faster.
While the Athlon II an dthe V series processors offer 64 bit floating point units (FPU), the turion ii processor ( including the AMD Turion II Neo K625 dual core processor ) offer 128 bit FPU which speeds up the performance of the cpu intensive tasks requiring floating point.
Different benchmark results show that the performance of the Turion ii Neo K625 processor is close in performance to the 1.3 to 1.5 GHz Core 2 Duo processors.
Built on 45 nm Silicon on Insulator technology, AMD Turion II Neo K625 dual core processor , the Turion processors have integrated DDR3 memory controller, which is one reason why the memory transfers in the Turion ii processors is faster than the intel core 2 architecture, which first communicated with the north bridge chip, which, in turn communicated with the DDR memory.
The communication with the chipset is using high speed differential bidirectional HyperTransport Bus at 3200 MT/s. The Turion ii Neo K625 does support hardware vitualization, which is very useful if you are using two operating systems in your system.
Some quick pros and cons
Pros of Turion ii Neo K625
