Athlon XP 2000+ spotted

Athlon XP 2000+ spotted

Now the rumors have come true, the Athlon XP 2000+ is available in Japan and will probably reach the European market shortly. It is the new top model from AMD with which the 2 GHz barrier is now 'virtually' broken.

As is known, the Athlon XP models are no longer based on frequency, but on performance in Named compared to Intel processors. The XP 2000+ is operated with a multiplier of 12.5, which multiplied by the FSB of 133 MHz results in a real clock of 1662.5 MHz. The CPU is available in Japan for 49,999 yen, which equates to around DM 842 or € 430. The brown carrier material that is still used is striking, as AMD has actually already switched to green carrier material (we reported).
