Athlon with 1.1 GHz is delivered
On August 28th, AMD plans to present the first systems with 1.1 GHz Athlon. To achieve this, AMD has already started to deliver processors with 1.1 GHz clock frequency to computer manufacturers.
AMD has also announced new prices for Duron and Athlon CPUs (see table). Thus, AMD is putting its competitor Intel under great pressure, since Intel only announced a Pentium III with 1.13 GHz at the end of July. The following prices apply to the purchase of 1000 pieces.
