One AMDZone reader found a pretty good hint of what we should expect for the first batch of Athlon 64s: [COLOR=royalblue]"this pdf on HP's site that reveals an Athlon 64 3100+ powered computer with the CPU runs at 1.8GHz. It uses the VIA K8T400M chipset for the motherboard. So we have a speed rating, a MHz, and learn that HP is planning a system."[/COLOR]
Let's remember we are still months away from official release & AMD has been showing these 1.8GHz CPUs for sometime now (now we get to know a PR rating), I'm hoping for speedier models that will hopefully will bring a whole new level of performance to the masses.
As a side note, AMD today introduced three new mobile Athlon XP-M chips today, taking the line to 2800+ performance and beefing up the chip's low-voltage product family with 1900+ and 2000+ models.
