AMD to give up P-Rating - X2 6000+ coming in Q1 2007

Once P-Rating is a very successful marketing tactic for AMD, making consumers to compare the PR of AMD's processors to the clock speed of Intel's processors. Until now, most of AMD's processors still adopted the PR scheme for customer's reference.

Nonetheless, the PR figures are no longer useful for comparison as dual core has become common; sometimes it is quite confusing, especially since the launch of Core architecture. Sources reported that AMD plans to discard the PR scheme starting from the next-generation Stars processor.
