Well, it does and where the Dell would borderline over heat with the Sempron it runs extremely cool with the Turion. The lowest-priced item that has been restored to working order by the manufacturer ‘manufacturer refurbished condition’ or an eBay seller or a third party not approved by the manufacturer ‘seller refurbished condition’. While the Sempron would have worked, going from a dual-core i3 to a single-core Sempron was tough so I decided to see if I could upgrade the cpu at all. I’ve been helping people upgrade their older and slower AMD single core x64 based laptops, with the dual core Turion options. The reference designs help ensure AMD customers get to market more quickly, and also help reduce platform development costs. I don’t think the cpu was defective, I think it was to much wattage.

Would the heat sink support the Turion? The TL worked with my Dell mobo. Intel Core i5 i Hexa-core 6 Core 3. This will lower your yearly electricity bill slightly, as well as prevent you from having to invest in extra cooling mechanisms unless you overclock.

The Turion 64 X2 and the Core 2 Duo both have 2 cores, and turuon are quite likely to struggle with the latest games, or at least bottleneck high-end graphics cards when running them. For both the lithography and the TDP, it is the lower the better, because a lower number means a lower amount of power is necessary to run the CPU, and consequently a lower amount of heat is produced. What this means is the Core 2 Duo will consume slightly less power and consequently produce less heat, enabling more prolonged computational tasks with fewer adverse effects.


Bear mkbile mind that although it is better to have a larger cache, the larger it is, the higher the latency, so a balance has to be struck. I mention this because I know the SSD was overkill for this machine Anyway, the the new hard drive solved the original issues. So I did some more research and found the Technilogy Turion that people were having luck with. And that was one thing I was worried about going from a single-core to a dual-core. I ended up installing two gigs of ram, tkrion an SSD hard drive in it.

CPU-Z Benchmark (x64 – 2015.1)

Turns out the motherboard supported some dual-core cpu’s. More important for gaming than the number of cores and threads is the clock rate.

Problematically, unless the two CPUs are from the same family, this can only serve as a general guide and nothing like an exact comparison, because the clock cycles per instruction CPI will vary so much. Bear in mind, then, that while the Turion 64 X2 has a 0.

L1 Cache is not usually an issue anymore for gaming, with most high-end CPUs eking out about the same L1 performance, and L2 is more important than L3 – but L3 is still important if you want to reach the highest levels of performance. This also means it will be less likely to bottleneck more powerful GPUs, allowing them to achieve more of their gaming performance potential.

CPU Cache and Memory. Faster than RAM, the more cache available, the more data that can be stored for lightning-fast retrieval.

AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology TL / GHz processor (mobile) Overview – CNET

But not only did it work, it was much faster, obviously, but it also runs exceptionally cooler than the Sempron. The lithography is the semiconductor manufacturing technology being used to create the CPU – the smaller this is, the more transistors that can be fit into the CPU, and the closer the connections. It was cheap, it was dual-core and it was much higher frequency than the Sempron.


The Dell was giving her fits and I thought I could fix it, and honestly, even the Sempron would have been fine for what I use a laptop for. Ratings and Reviews Write a review.

Mpbile gets quite hot, while it varies greatly by laptops, in the HP laptop idled at 52C and reached 73C when loaded.

Anyway, to tution a long story short I inherited the laptop and some money after trading my Core i3 laptop to my sister. AMD Ryzen X 3.
