In the same breath, it can also be said that AMDs mobile equivalent(Turion) are a renowned cool, green and quiet peformer.

Looking at both Intel and AMDs roadmaps, there is more of a convergence between desktop and mobile platforms than has been previously.

The R&D challenges mobile CPU designers face are starting to parallel in deskie versions...as functionality and cost effectiveness demands more kit be crammed onto the same pcb space!
