AMD Palominos to ship 9 October

AMD's Palomino processors will launch on 9 October.

Now called the Athlon XP, it will come in 4 speeds - the XP 1500 plus, XP 1600 plus, XP 1700 plus and XP 1800 plus. Prices to OEMs are $115, $124, $152 and $210 respectively, but may vary depending on volume.

The clock speeds of the chips are:

XP 1500 - 1.33GHz

XP 1600 - 1.4GHz

XP 1700 - 1.47GHz

XP 1800 - 1.53GHz

AMD has given the Palominos their 1500 plus etc. names, and not used the clock speeds of the processors, to move away from direct comparisons with Intel processor speeds.
