Those are first benchmarks which claim that Turion overperforms PM. It's interesting. The fact that Turion slightly overperforms PM in arithmetic benchamrks is no news to me, though. Conecerning the battery life, I wonder how 35 Watt Turion ML can be on par with 25 Watt PM. The issue is if the benchmarks used actually are testing applications where the advantage of 2 time bigger L2 cache of PM comes into play. I don't know that. Thanks for the interesting link. It's always good to know that the world around may be different than one thought it is.
