QUOTE Seems to be plenty of info on the desktop 64's but information on mobiles seem to be thin on the ground.
Unfortunately, you will not find any detailed official specifictions or Datasheets (beyond some very basic info on the product info pages) for any current AMD mobile parts on AMDs website.
The reason for this is probably the fact that Laptops/Notebooks are not (yet) meant to be built by an individual user and most OEMs don't even offer BIOS-updates beyond a couple of necessary bugfixes either /sad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif' />
QUOTEI am looking for the spec on the Athlon 64 Mobile Spec AMN3000BIX5AR.
While I can't provide a link to official specifications for this part, I'll still answer your question:
What you have here is a 62W Standard/Mainstream Mobile Athlon 64 processor using a CG-rev. 'Clawhammer'-core (Model 4, rev. SH7-CG, CPUID: 'F-4-A'
with a 1.40V Vcore, 95°C max. temp and 1MB L2-cache.
As for your upgrade-options, you should be able to use any mobile Athlon 64 processor with an equal (62W) or lower (35W) power-consumption class.
However, a BIOS-update will be mandatory, if
your replacement/upgrade processor has a newer revision than rev. CG (i.e. D0 or E-rev parts).
If you wish to upgrade, contact your Laptops' manufacturer to see if they offer a BIOS-update for your model.
If you have any further questions, feel fre to ask /happy.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='happy.gif' />
