Directly competing with Intel's Core Duo, the new Turion X2's are supposed to pack quite a punch
Ramp up in processor production from both AMD and Intel has been healthy for the last several months, with a good amount of units being shipped from both companies. AMD has never been better, shipping solid quantities of processors throughout the channel.
On May 9th, AMD is poised to announce an enitre family of new Turion X2 64 processors. According to datasheets, AMD will be releasing seven different flavors of Turions with the entry-level unit starting at 1.6GHz and the flagship topping out at 2.2GHz with 2MB of L2 cache.
The new CPUs will also come in low-voltage flavors for the mobile market, in which the new CPUs will be directly competing with Intel's Core Duo mobile processors. Traditionally, Intel has been ahead of the game when it comes to the mobile market. AMD, however, is hoping to gain more marketshare, similar in the way it has done with the desktop market. According to AMD, more Turion flavors will come after the initial seven are released in May.

"If you look at the last five years, if you look at what major innovations have occurred in computing technology, every single one of them came from AMD. Not a single innovation came from Intel." -- AMD CEO Hector Ruiz in 2007
