I have been able to find the power used by this processor:

AMD Opteron Processors EE: 30 Watts

but I could not find anything about power dissipation of
your new Mobile AMD Athlon 64.

Since this is quite a critical information, you had better
write it somewhere on your web site!

Could the AMD Opteron Processors EE be used for laptops?

Could you also let me know when the low power version of
the Mobile AMD Athlon 64 will be available, and the power it
will need?

Sincerely,

Pietro Mele

Currently, there are two versions/'classes' of mobile Athlon 64-M's:
Desktop-replacement with a max power consumption of 81.5W and 'Mainstream' with a 62W max power consumption.

You can find thermal & electrical specs for both desktop and mobile A64s as well as the A64 FX in this document' ">http://www.amd.com/us-en/asset...nd_tech_docs/30430.pdf

Nope. It is a server/workstation-type CPU...also, the Opteron-series require registered RAM which is not available in a SO-DIMM format that is used in most notebooks.

TDP for the low-power A64-M will be around 30W, AFAIK.
I have no information about its availability, but my personal guess is around Q2/Q3 2004.
