Athlon with 1.3GHz presented
During the day, AMD presented two new Athlon models with 1.33 and 1.3 GHz at CeBit today. According to AMD, the newest member of the Athlon family should be up to 40% faster than a Pentium 4 clocked at 1.5GHz from competitor Intel.
While the Athlon with 1.3GHz still runs at 100MHz ( effectively 200MHz) FSB sets, the 1.33GHz model already uses 133MHz (effectively 266MHz). The price of the new CPUs is $ 350 for the 1.33GHz Athlon when 1,000 pieces are purchased. For the slightly slower 1.3 GHz model, however, $ 318 changes hands.
