Select Sony Vaio Notebooks Feature AMD Processors Instead of Intel

June 22, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Sony has fitted two of its latest notebook models in the Vaio series called EE25FX and EF22FX with processors manufactured by AMD instead of the usual Intel processors. The company had stopped using components from AMD in its notebooks a couple of years ago and had adopted Intel processors to power the functions on its notebook PCs.

AMD’s Athlon II X2 P320 chipsets that run at 2.10 GHz and have a 1MB L2 cache are present in both the Vaio notebooks. The EE25FX notebook has a 15.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1366×768 pixels. It has a hard drive capacity of 320 GB and a memory of 4GB. The notebook’s mobile power needs are taken care of by its 3500 mAh battery and the device contains a Blu Ray Disc player as well.

The other notebook carrying the AMD processor, the EF22FX, has a 17.3-inch screen and a resolution of 1600×900 pixels. It has a 500 GB hard drive and has 4GB worth of memory as well, though the memory can be increased to 8 GB separately. It is also packed with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 graphics card.

Best Buy has listed the Sony Vaio EE25FX notebook for $650, while the EF22FX notebook has been priced at $720 on retailer FRYS’ website.
