AMD Athlon II M300

AMD M300

The AMD Athlon II Dual-Core Mobile M300 is a entry level Dual Core CPU by AMD for laptops with an integrated dual channel DDR2 memory controller (400MHz). The Caspian called core should be based on the K10 architecture (maybe only partly). Compared to the Turion II CPUs, the Athlon II feature a slower HyperTransport Link (1600 MHz). 

The performance of the Athlon II M300 should be comparable to an old Merom based 1.8 Ghz Core 2 Duo. Compared to cheap Celeron Dual Core models by Intel, the Athlon II series has the advantage of 64 Bit support and hardware Virtualization support.
