AMD Turion- 64 bit mobile chip competes with Pentium M

AMD is finally getting serious with the mobile CPU segment with the announcement of the Turion, a 64 bit answer to Intel’s Pentium M.  The Turion is based on the same architecture as AMD’s Opteron and Athlon 64 processors and should give notebook computer makers an alternative to the expensive Intel chipset.  The press release provided no word when the Turion will start appearing in notebooks nor how the price will compare to the Pentium M.
