Is AMD Preventing Internal Competition?

According to rumors, AMD will discontinue production of the AMD Athlon Thunderbird 1400 Mhz in order not to compete in-house with the upcoming Athlon XP 1500+, which will be much more expensive.

The physically 'only' 1500+ clocked at 1333Mhz would run the risk of being a tad faster than the more expensive successor, especially in older and non-optimized applications. So far this has been pure speculation, which is certainly justified in view of similar incidents in the past.
