    Weren't all AMD cpus supposed to be in a green color ? Is it only the boxed versions that are green ?

    Why does that chip say "1999"? LoL

    My XP2100+ is brown. But my XP1700+ is green...Plus my burned out 1900+ too.

    My XP2100+ also says 1999...

    Is that a bigger core or a heat spreader?

    Is that the year the name "Athlon" was created? If so then its a copyright on the Athlon name, 1999.

    The core is about 15 / 20% longer. It should help with cooling but the extra transistors for the bigger L2 cache will surely compensate for it.:(
