    Just been doin' some readin' around since I have a moment of free time so I'll copy and paste this from the Inquirer. :devil:
    4000+ by end of the year, and Paris in the the Autumn

    By Mike Magee: Friday 17 January 2003, 11:00


    TEC CHANNEL has just published AMD and Intel roadmaps for its Athlon 64 chips in 2003.
    The lengthy article says that AMD will introduce Athlon 64s in 2800+, 3100+ and 3400+ versions, in Q1 and the roadmaps, pictures of which you can find on page three of the article, confirms that there will be 333MHz Bartons initially at speeds of 3000+, 2800+ and 2500+.

    The Bartons will live on to become 3200+ chips in Q3/Q4 of this year.

    Meanwhile, the roadmaps suggest that Athlon 64s with 1MB of L2 will launch in Q2, to be followed by 3700+ speeds in Q3, and 4000+ speeds in Q4.

    In Q3, AMD will introduce a "Paris" version of the Athlon 64 with only 256K L2 cache, rather than 1MB, and at speeds of 3200+. There will be a 3500+ version of this in Q4.

    You can find the front page of this article, here, now.

    The article also has information about Intel roadmaps, confirming many details published here earlier, including hyperthreaded 2.40GHz Pentium 4s and above.

    Prescott, as we suggested earlier, won't arrive now until Q4 of this year, and at speeds in excess of 3.40GHz. There's also confirmation on further pages about the Canterwood and Springdale chipsets we revealed last year, and the CSA (communications streaming architecture), Intel will implement in future chipsets.

    Yes I think that I'll build that P4 setup first and wait for a Barton to come along for the other case. :devil win

    Current AthlonXP = Athlon64
    Current AthlonMP = Opteron

    Right?

    What kind of improvements will there be on the Opteron over the Athlon64?

    No wrong. :no:

    AthlonXP = Palamino/Thoroughbreds A & B/Barton

    AthlonMP = Dual support of the above mentioned cores

    Athlon64 = Clawhammer (single on die memory controller)

    Opteron = Sledgehammer (dual on die memory controllers)

    The first two will be budget solutions in the end (the Duron dies) while the third take's up the top end positions and the last will be aimed at purely the business sector. ;)

    Wiggo, i understand the core names and what product name they apply to. ;)
    I was wondering if the Athlon64 was what will phase out the AthlonXP and if the Opteron is what going to phase out the AthlonMP... i know they are all going to coexist for awhile, but i havent seen the RoadMap so im not sure where stuff is going...

    The Duron is the only one planned to go as the others still continue to show on the roadmap and should continue so for about 2 years. ;)
