Boy Chat, you've fallen behind the PC curve... :) The AthlonXP is AMD's
latest comsumer CPU. It runs from 1.3 to 1.667GHz, and supports 3D-Now!
Pro and SSE1 instruction sets. It uses a 133MHz, DDR external bus (two
bits per cycle). The XP is labled not by it's Hz rating, but by a number
derived from a synthetic benchmark that compares performance to the Intel
P4 at various speeds. This is much like the old Cyrix 6x86 chips "PR"
