AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-50

AMD TL-50

The AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-50 is a Dual-Core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz. It is based on the K8 core and offers only 256KB Level 2 Cacher per core. The TL-50 is the slowest processor of the TL line and was produced in 90nm.

The performance of the Turion TL-50 is compareable to a 1.5 GHz Core Duo with 512 KB Level 2 Cache (e.g. in 3DMark06 CPU and Cinebench 10 Benchmark). However, some benchmarks like SuperPi perform far worse (see benchmarks below).

The power consumption compared to the Core Duo processors is noticeable higher on average leading to a shorter battery runtime.
