The AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-62 is a 2.1 GHz dual core mobile computer processor. This CPU retains the same design features as the rest of the family, but has been given a 35W TDP(thermal design point, or power consumption) rating. This means it dissipates more heat than it's slower(rated 31W TDP) cousins, in fact this and the remaining faster CPU's in this group are all 35W TDP. Build wise, as per the entire line, all have undergone design changes as of May 2007 which changed from 90-nm Silicon-on-Insulator(SOI) core composition to a 65-nm Silicon-Germanium based core making them smaller and more efficient with better heat dissipation. This has brought them into the ring with Intel Core and Core 2 processors in terms of performance and in AMD's case, affordability. 512KB shared L2 cache is also a common feature of these processors(meaning half a megabyte is the limit for each core), as is the dual memory controller which enables two streams of RAM data transfer at once when using identical sticks of RAM.
