A shocked silence greeted the INQUIRER this morning when we asked AMD UK to either confirm or deny it was introducing its 2400+ and 2600+ Athlon XPs on the 21st of August next.
Whole seconds later, AMD said it never commented on unannounced products.
System integrators close to AMD in Taipei suggest that the 2600+ has a raw MHz speed of 2.133GHz, while the 2400+ clocks 2GHz.
But, nevertheless, neither of these chipolatas has a 333MHz front side bus (FSB), although we do know for a fact that the little gnomes in the back room are tapping away at such a system as we write this.
In fact, leprechauns close to those gnomes say that AMD will eventually migrate the 333MHz FSB to all of them thar Athlon XPs eventually.
