AMD makes it official: 800MHz Athlon

— 2:26 PM on January 6, 2000

We reviewed the Athlon 800 late last year, but not until today did AMD make its official announcement about the product. AMD and Compaq have also demostrated a 1GHz Kryotech-enhanced Presario, although for me the "wow" factor is on these supercooled systems is diminished quite a bit by our air-cooled 900MHz exploits.

AMD has also cut a deal to supply HP with mobile processors. Meanwhile, Gateway is pledging to "avoid 'sole supply' relationships with microprocessor makers" after getting burned by Intel supply shortages in recent months. (Thanks to JC's for those last two links.)

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
