    Late this month, early next by all reports and AMD's site has already started to put up entries for a 2200+ CPU. ;)

    Even more interesting will be to see how it performs next to a P4 2.53b...I'm putting my money on the p4 :D

    My money is going on the AthlonXP......for one thing the current athlon XP's already rape every pentium 4 so far in most benchmarks......even my athlon thunderbird is a p4 rapist.....now to think that's using .18 technology let's see how much faster .13 and how much cooler they run and best of all how much faster the clock speeds jump up....I just wish AMD would jump up higher then 70Mhz everytime.......AMD FOR LIFE!!!!!!

    Sorry but since the 2.4GHz P4 the Athlon has been left behind but seeing how the .13's goes for headroom will be interesting. :smokin:

    No, the athlon 2100+ raped the P4 2.4GHz in almost every benchmark except memory benchmarks cuase the P4 is alot better then the athlons at handling that.......I ain't impressed with nothing except clock speed on the pentium 4 and the clock throttling ability that it has.......other then that its athlon for life.....my little athlon 1.4 is faster then the 1.7 P4 by 44%!!!! go to tweak3d.net and there is a review on the 2100+ vs 2.4GHz guess who won?

    Really the 2.4 P4 was pretty close with the 2100+ but the 533MHz FSB P4's have jumped away at the moment but $ for performance, the AMD still has it. :smokin:

    OMG I forgot about that bus speed in crease....ya AMD really needs to pump theres up......its gotten out of hand.....but in my opinion, with clock speed being so much higher and price being so much higher and clock speed being so much higher it shows you how a 1.7GHz would perform against the 1.7GHz AthlonXP in my opinion the P4 is a joke considering that the P3 outperformed them when they first came out.....

    ReSpAwN DeMoN, before you join the bunch of rabid AMD enthusiasts screaming "Intel SUX!!! I'll never buy an Intel CPU even if AMD's next one SUX!!!", have a look at the past...

    I like and respect CPUs from both vendors. Before the Athlon launched, no self respecting tweaker had an AMD based system, in fact they were laughing stock. I even remember when I bought my first IBM 6x86 based system, it was the fastest CPU around!!! Quake wasn't invented then :D

    Sure, AMD has the price-to-performance edge currently, but Intel is too wily to just let AMD run all over them. And just remember, up until the 70's AMD was actually a part of Intel! The U.S. Government needed redundancy in case Intel's fab failed. When Intel started making several fab plants, AMD was cast off on their own and started rebadging Intel CPUs.

    Yes the Athlon is better from a direct clock speed ratio, but please note the Athlon core is already 3 years old. The Pentium 4 core is only 2 years old, and is more scalable than the Athlon. Sorry to dissapoint, but the "NetBurst" core will reach higher clock speeds than AMD will with Athlon (x86-64 should remedy that).

    So before you jump on your high horse please look at both sides of the fence :)
