Краткое содержание статьи: In the last 12 months we have learned that AMD's Athlon architecture is built for clock speed. In June AMD released the first Athlon with on-die second level cache for SocketA, better known under its code name 'Thunderbird'. After ramping up production AMD finally launched the latest 'Thunderbird' for 1.1 GHz clock speed. This new and powerful Athlon 1100 will actually ship now and ship in volume, which is a major difference to Intel's flaky Pentium III at 1.13 GHz.

The Specs of AMD's New Athlon/Thunderbird Processor

AMD Athlon Thunderbird Processor

I don't want to bore you with stuff you have read and heard a hundred times before, so I'll keep myself short. AMD's new Athlon 1100 is another version of AMD's Thunderbird core. This core is based on the original Athlon architecture, but different to its older brother for SlotA it comes with its L2-cache combined with the CPU-core on the same piece of silicon. This silicon piece, or 'die' happens to consist of about 37 million transistors, its package is the now well-known 462-pin SocketA-PGA and its favorite platform is based on VIA's Apollo KT133 chipset.

The new 1.1 GHz Athlon requires the same core voltage as the Athlon/Thunderbird at lower clock speeds, which is 1.75 V. Its thermal power dissipation is 1 W higher than what we know from the Thunderbird at 1 GHz, which in return means that you won't need a significantly altered cooling solution over what is used for the first Giga-Thunderbird.

AMD's new Athlon 1100 has one invaluable advantage over Intel's recent Pentium III 1.13 GHz. Different to Intel's desperate 'beyond-giga' solution the new Athlon does not require anything different than its less powerful brothers. The Athlon 1100 runs on ANY SocketA platform, while Intel guarantees the, by me yet unseen, 'stability' of the 1.13 GHz Pentium III only on ONE specially modified VC820 motherboard. Athlon 1.1 GHz is allowed to get as hot as all its slower siblings, while Intel tries to insure some reliability of it's 1.13 GHz solution by specifying the maximal 'junction temperature' down to 62 degrees centigrade, which in return requires massive cooling solutions.

Finally there is one more reason to favor AMD's new processor - the price. I already mentioned that I found Athlon 1100 at PriceWatch. With 719 US-Dollars it's almost $250 cheaper than the best offer for a Pentium III 1 GHz at US$ 962! I guess it's needless to add that no retailer in the world is selling a Pentium III 1.13 GHz. This miraculous piece of, excuse me, silicon-trash only ships in a few OEM boxes for the gentleman who's got really everything, even the silver telephone dialer.
