AMD Turion II M520

The AMD Turion II M520 is a entry level Dual Core CPU by AMD for laptops with an integrated dual channel DDR2 memory controller (400MHz). The Caspian called core is only partly based on the K10 architecture. Compared to the Turion II Ultra CPUs, the M520 features only 1 MB shared Level 2 cache. 

The performance of the Turion M520 should be in most benchmarks comparable to a 2.0 Ghz clocked Celeron Dual-Core T3300 / Pentium Dual Core. In some programs the M520 performs even as fast as a 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo.
