Athlon with 1.4 GHz and Palomino core in July
Actually, according to AMD's plans, the Athlon with the new Palomino core should appear in the first quarter of this year, but now the 1.4 GHz Athlon with the Palomino core will not be produced until the beginning of July. Production of the Duron processor with a Morgan core, which was actually announced for the first quarter of 2001, will also start then.
The new Duron will start at a clock frequency of 950 MHz. The first test samples can therefore be expected in the second quarter. Furthermore, AMD plans to stop production of the K6-2 from April.
