In late 1999 AMD release their new processor, the Athlon. This processor really allowed AMD to establish it's self in the processor market, with its excellent performance. As the last 2 years have gone by, AMD has released 2 updates to the Athlon Processor line. First was the thunderbird which sported on die cache that ran at the full speed of the processor and at that point AMD transitioned over to a socket based processor. The latest version of the processor is based on the palomino core. Also AMD has released a SMP version, MP and have updated the Duron with the Morgan core. The Athlon has a new name to boot. XP. XP stands for Extreme Performance. Does the processor live up to it's new name? Read on to find out.
