AMD confirms Applebred launch

  1. AMD has confirmed the existence of the Applebred processor, and said that the Duron-branded core has already begun shipping.

    As we reported yesterday, Applebred - not, as we wrote, 'Appalbred', which was how Babelfish translated the original Russian report on the chip - is a low-end part equipped with just 64KB of on-die L2 cache and, as we guessed, a 266MHz frontside bus.

    "We're aiming the part at certain markets, such as South America and Eastern Europe, where customers have asked us to extend the Duron line," said Baker.

    sounds like that chip is gonna be slow as ƒ%#!

    Wouldnt an AthlonXP (say) 1700+ be faster then one of those? Unless they're running at 4GHz I'd think so.

    It's a budget chip dude, it's supposed to be slower...
