Athlon XP 2000+ at the end of the year

Now that AMD has finally let the cat, or rather the Athlon XP, out of the bag, the processor manufacturer's roadmaps have also been updated. Accordingly, we will see an Athlon XP with a performance rating of 2000+ and 1900+ this year.

The real clock rates of these models can be calculated by multiplying the rating by two thirds and adding 333 points to this result. Accordingly, the Athlon XP 1900+ will have a clock frequency of 1.6 GHz, the slightly faster model a clock rate of 1.67 GHz. In the first quarter of next year, probably in March, there will be an Athlon XP 2100+, which will have a real clock rate of 1.73 GHz. With the conversion to the new 0.13 µm processor production, the Athlon family will also receive a new core, which is currently being developed under the code name Thoroughbred. With it, the architecture of the Athlon is likely to change again, but more details are not yet known.
