First athlons sighted with 266 MHz FSB
The first Athlon processors with 266 MHz Front Side Bus (FSB) have already appeared in Japan. The 1.2 GHz version of the Athlon with 266 MHz FSB costs 340 dollars.
The new processors should therefore also be available in Europe soon. Since Intel's fastest Pentium III processor currently only has 1 GHz and is also more expensive than the new Athlon with 266 MHz FSB, the new model is probably the fastest processor on the market (Pentium 4 not included) .
