The Inquirer has some information on upcoming processors from Intel and AMD this morning. A conference call with NVIDIA has confirmed that AMD will be moving to a 333MHz front side bus for its Athlon XP processors, which NVIDIA's nForce2 chipset will be the first to officially support.
On the other side of the fence, Intel is apparently already sampling hyperthreading 2.53 and 2.8GHz Pentium 4 processors, and should have 3.06GHz samples by September in preparation for a November launch. We'll just have to hold tight and see if a faster front side bus from AMD will be enough to counter the potential performance gains from hyperthreading on a Pentium 4.
