Does the Thunderbird start at 1.25 GHz?

According to a report from CNET.com, it is assumed that the AMD Athlon successor called Thunderbird, which is made of copper and has the L2 cache-on-die, will start at a clock frequency of 1.25 GHz. That would be the logical answer to the presentation of a Proto-Pentium IV 1-2 months ago with 1.5 GHz, which should come onto the market at the end of 2000.

According to a report from CNET.com, it is assumed that the AMD Athlon successor called Thunderbird, which is made of copper and has the L2 cache-on-die, with a clock frequency of 1 , 25 GHz will start. That would be the logical answer to the presentation of a Proto-Pentium IV 1-2 months ago with 1.5 GHz, which should come on the market at the end of 2000. In addition to the Thunderbird, AMD will also bring a little brother called the Spitfire onto the market, which speculation suggests that it will be faster than its 'grandfather' Athlon, which is clocked in the same way. Like the Thunderbird, the Spitfire has L2 cache-on-die, but is still made of aluminum. In addition, the L2 cache will be significantly smaller than with the Thunderbird. Incidentally, the two new AMD CPUs should be released at the end of May, beginning of July! Perhaps by then there will even be the first suitable VIA boards that can address PC-266 DDR-SD-RAM and thus offer an ideal platform.
