Default Athlon 2600+ Lives

very impressive, AMD has redesigned the tbred and increased clockspeed to an actual 2GHz(2400) and 2133MHz respectively. they are back in the running for performance king still no sign of the 166FSB though

at least now we know AMD won't be left in the dust until Hammer, they will fight Intel all the way!

I am excited about the future AMD cpu's but seriously when is AMD going to improve there heat problem. I mean they had to change their cpu fan requirements to copper base for these 2 cpu's. AAAAAAH, oh well at least the performance is great and the price is right or at least cheaper than the P4's.

I've heard it was supposed to be 2800+, never heard of 2700+

Following in Intel's footsteps in that lack of odd numbers. I too think that this is an impressive response by AMD to the complaints against the Thoroughbred core. I suppose this may help silence the doubts about Hammer's using the process, eh?

Is there anything about prices yet,I guess I no what I will get for my birthday now.Looking at the reviews they look like they will be better overclockers than the XP2200.

No prices available yet; streetprices.com ha sno entries whatsoever for the 2400+ or the 2600+.

As for a 166MHz FSB clock, since the 2600+ supposedly has OC headroom up to about 2.88GHz (with supercooling), I don't think it will croak with a 166MHz FSB: 166x15=2496, 2.49GHz. Wonderful

My normal upgrade cycle hits in the springtime, but thanks to both the new AMD processor releases and the soon-to-be-on-the-market nForce2's, I may try to convince the wife I need the motherboard / processor for a b-day present in late October / early November.

One thing's for sure, now that AMD's showing the true headroom that is available for the T-Bred's, even if I don't manage the upgrade this year, I'll most likely stick with a high-end overclockable T-Bred and skip hammer for a year or so, and let that processor and it's chipsets mature before I move up to it. (I WILL eventually move to Hammer, but I'd like it to be well-broken-in first).

Between these new processors and the R300/nV30, things are really looking good for us.
