AthlonXP 1900+ shortly before the launch?
AthlonXPs 1900+ are increasingly appearing on US retailer price lists. So far, however, this has not been announced by AMD. The processor, which actually clocks at 1600MHz, seems to be about to be introduced. In view of the overclocking successes so far, this is not surprising.
It seems to be the rule rather than the exception that AthlonXPs of higher quantispeeds can actually reach the 1600MHz mark. In the light of this information, it also seems more plausible that AMD only wanted to create a little space in the 'high-price segment' with the latest price reductions in order to place the new processor there, the official announcement of which is expected at this year's COMDEX in mid-November. Based on US prices around $ 265, the new processor will be available from us for around DM 650 to DM 700.
