AMD has released a new 32/64-bit processor designed for desktop replacement notebooks.
The Mobile AMD Athlon 64 processor 3700+ in conjunction with Windows XP SP2 enables enhanced virus protection that blocks some memory-resident viruses.
"We have again raised the bar for 64-bit mobile performance with the latest addition to our powerful Mobile AMD Athlon 64 processor family," said Marty Seyer, general manager of AMD's microprocessor business unit.
"AMD has led the way to a brave new world where 32-bit technology will become a remnant of the past. AMD believes that the freedom to choose from a variety of best-in-class, open-standard technologies allows manufacturers to offer their customers a more feature-rich notebook."
Gateway is already using the new chip in its 7426GX notebook range, available in the US.
The processor is the fifth in AMD's 32/64-bit range. It costs $336 in 1,000 unit quantities.
