    Am I right by saying that the Throughbred's will be compatable with the current mobos on the market? I'm asking this because my Abit KG7-RAID board just got new bios that allow for 0.13 AMD XP processors, but it didn't say anything about the Throughbreds.

    If I remember correctly, the mobo must support lower voltages which is required for the Thoroughbreds. And this is also one of the requirements in the article posted :

    Not sure how to check that for mobos though.

    Also found this today on a Tiwainese site. Pics of T-bred and side by side of the 3 different Athie's, T-bird, XP, & T-Bred. Also if you notice the two charts, AMD has and is sticking to Socket A while Intel has an over abundance of Socket combo's.

    Here is the link to the pic's

    Well I commented on it yesturday, here it is from Chris Tom of AMDZone.com

    This makes perfect sense to me and sounds like AMD is gearing up to make Hammer the main line and Athlon the "budget" line !!
