Will AMD bring the XP 2000+ in January?
The race between AMD and Intel continues. After Intel announced that it would present the Pentium 4 with 2.2 GHz and the 0.13 µ Northwoord core on January 7th, AMD will probably launch the Athlon XP 2000+ in return.
The clock rate of the new AMD will probably be 1666 MHz (2000 * 2/3 +333), but our source was not entirely sure, since 1662 MHz or 1664 MHz are assumed there. The XP 2000+ should be available in large numbers from January to continue to make life difficult for Intel in terms of price and performance. AMD has declined to comment on the rumors.
