MPF 2001 - Servers And Workstation CPUs Take Center Stage
There was a dramatic drop-off in attendance at this year's Microprocessor Forum, but the server market is going to heat up with AMD joining the fray with Intel, Sun, and IBM. We got a first look at AMD's Athlon 2000+ XP, ATI's Xilleon, Intel's IA-32 and IA-64 roadmaps, Via's C5 roadmap, and more discussions on the MHz processor game.

AMD Introduces AthlonXP Processor - Performance Matters!
The wait is finally over. Today AMD is releasing its first desktop processor based on the 'Palomino' core under the name AthlonXP. The launch of AthlonXP is also marking AMD's step away from the usual clock frequency rating of processors to a new rating system suggesting 'relative performance'. I consider this the real big deal about today's launch. It requires a lot of discussion.

Hot Microprocessor News
Intel just released its new 2 GHz Pentium 4 while AMD dropped its processor pricing by more than half. That's what happened Monday, but what is waiting for us tomorrow? Will Intel continue the GHz-race with its new 'Northwood' chip and how? Will AMD be able to tackle the huge clock speed gap between Pentium 4 and Athlon? What are the microprocessor makers cooking right now? A huge pile of sizzling news just fell into our lap and we can't wait to share them with you.

Intel Beats AMD To 2 GHz
Revenge is sweet. Today is marking an important day for the big chipmaker from Santa Clara. After losing the 1 GHz processor race last year, Intel is now ready to ship the first 2 GHz processor way ahead of its competition. We checked to see if there is more to it than just high clock speed.

AMD's Duron Reaches The Giga Hertz Barrier
Yesterday AMD launched today's launch of their value processor Duron at 1 GHz . To create at least a little excitement AMD didn't just release a faster version of the well-known Duron CPU, but equipped the new Giga Hertz version with a more advanced core known under the code name 'Morgan'. We are having a look to find out if this had any significant impact on Duron's performance.

First Look At Brookdale - Intel's Upcoming 845 Chipset
Pentium 4 sales remain low, which is not entirely the fault of the price/performance of Intel's flagship processor. Current i850 platforms require Rambus' expensive and unpopular RDRAM, which reduces Pentium 4's appeal to the buyers even more. Soon Intel will come up with an alternative to i850 plus RDRAM. In a few weeks we will have the chance to spend our money for an even crazier solution. The i845 chipset will team up Pentium 4 with the slow and ageing PC133 memory. We tested this bizarre combination.

HOT! An Early Look At The New Pentium III (Tualatin or Coppermine-T?)
Somehow one of those new Pentium III (Tualatin or Coppermine-T?) processors with the famous clock speed 1.13 GHz happened to fall in our lap. We think that for historical reason it should be us and nobody else, who tests Intel's second attempt to manufacture a Pentium III at this clock speed, so we gave the still 'secret' chip a good test run. Now we understand why Intel doesn't know if it should release it or not. Once overclocked to more than 1.4 GHz it is able to threaten Intel's fastest Pentium 4 processors.

Computex: AMD Releases 760MP Chipset For Dual AthlonMP
We had to wait a long time for the release of AMD's SMP platform, but now, almost 2 years after the first release of the Athlon processor, we can finally experience a system based on two Athlon processors. The processor for the AMD760MP chipset is also new, based on the long anticipated 'Palomino'-core and going by the name AthlonMP. This gives us the first chance to look at the improved performance of Palomino in comparison with its predecessor 'Thunderbird'.

The First Palomino - AMD Releases Mobile Athlon 4
Latest since Intel's Pentium 4 launch last year people were wondering when AMD would release its next processor design to stay ahead of Intel. The code name of 'Thunderbird's' successor is already known for a long while. At last 'Palomino' was finally christened 'Athlon 4' and it debuts as AMD's new performance weapon in the notebook arena against Intel's aging Mobile Pentium III. 'Palomino' will soon be available for dual-CPU workstations and desktop computers too. We have a close look at this first version of Athlon 4.

Intel Pentium 4 1.7 GHz - More Power For Less Money
Today Intel starts shipping their processor flagship Pentium 4 in a version that runs at 1.7 GHz. The sales of the Pentium 4 processor haven't done too well lately, so that new price cuts and a faster version shall improve the situation. Is Pentium 4 1.7 GHz a worthy opponent to AMD's Athlon 1333?

AMD Releases Duron 900
It was only a question of time until AMD would make the next logical step and launch the next fastest Duron processor, running at 900 MHz. The computing power of this new low-cost processor is getting impressively close to the performance leaders from a year ago, the Giga Hertz Pentium III and Athlon CPUs.

AMD Launches Athlon Processor at 1300 and 1333 MHz
Only a few weeks ago we learned from AMD's president Hector Ruiz that AMD is not feeling under any particular pressure to release the next speed grade Athlon processor, as long as the current models are successfully competing against the Pentium 4 products of archenemy Intel. A handful of reviewers and analysts know very well that samples of Athlon 1333 processors are running flawlessly for more than a month now. Today, on the first day of CeBIT2001/Germany, the world's largest computer convention, AMD is finally releasing its new high-speed Athlon processors. We have put them through rigorous testing.

Pentium 4 Systems - To Buy or Not To Buy / To Cry Or Not to Cry
Have you become interested in one of those Pentium 4 systems for 'only' $1500? Have you maybe even considered buying such a Pentium 4 system? This article will separate truth from fiction and answer the question if there is any sense in spending your money on one of those new Pentium 4 machines. Tom compares two Dell Dimension 8100 Pentium 4 systems with two equally priced Athlon systems from Gateway and Micron to save you from making the wrong decision.

AMD Releases Duron 850
The race in the low-cost sector continues. After Intel's amusingly late release of the Celeron 800 at the (exciting?) FSB clock of 100 MHz, AMD is countering with Duron 850. It's no surprise which of the two has the better performance and the more attractive price.
