'Quantispeed' is now also available for the Athlon 4
Anyone looking for the effects of the price cut announced by AMD for a long time will have come across a little surprise in the official price list. In addition to a new Athlon 4 version, the P-Rating appears in this series.
So far, the fastest model was the version clocked with 1.2 GHz, now the Athlon 4 1500+ leads the ranking. The processor clocked at 1.3 GHz is supposed to close the gap to the soon-to-be officially released Pentium 4 Mobile with 1.6 or even 1.7 GHz. At $ 525, the new top model is, as usual, very expensive. On the other hand, the previously suspected price reductions for Athlon XP and Co. are rather sobering. Unlike suspected a few days ago , the prices remained constant.
