Athlon MPs to move to 333MHz bus


— 12:23 PM on December 10, 2002

The Inquirer is reporting that AMD will move its Athlon MP processors to a 333MHz front side bus next year. A chipset tweak will be needed to support the faster bus, but apparently that's a trivial matter. Unfortunately, it looks like support for a 333MHz bus is the only modification AMD will be making to the 760MPX chipset, which means that fans of dual channel DDR and AGP 8X will have to go with a single-processor AMD platform, or switch teams and run a pair of Xeons on Intel's Placer chipset.
