AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-68

AMD TL-68

The AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-68 is the fastest processor of the TL series clocked at 2.4 GHz. It is based on the K8 core and offers only 512KB Level 2 Cache per core (two cores - dual core CPU). The TL-68 is part of the in 65nm produced TL processors with a TDP of 35W.

The performance of the Turion TL-68 is compareable to a slower clocked Core Duo with 1MB Level 2 Cache (e.g. in 3DMark06 CPU and Cinebench 10 Benchmark). However, some benchmarks like SuperPi perform far worse (see benchmarks below) and the typical Core Duo with 2.4 GHz has more Level 2 Cache.

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