Uiteraard heeft ook AGN Hardware een Athlon artikel gepost. Hier heb je een stukje uit hun review:
As it stands now I cannot find one complaint against the Athlon CPU, AMD has done an amazing job making sure that this new CPU is a true step above Intel's offering. CPUs and chipsets are not the same though, and is seems that the AMD Irongate/Viper chipset has it's share of problems. The first issue that is a bit strange is the fact that the memory is only PC100. The end result is slower memory performance that results in lower game performance at the higher resolution levels. A move to PC133 would introduce a new level of performance for gaming that would truly bring the Athlon to a faster level. I am using a reference motherboard though, so future retail boards should offer support for PC133 memory if that is what you need. 200MHz memory on the other hand would cost you an arm and a leg, so I doubt they will support that yet. Another fault of the chipset seems to be a low level of ATA66 support. Even when using the same hard drives, I was getting a rating for the Athlon system that was 1MB+ slower. Hopefully the VIA chipset or the next generation AMD chipset can offer a solution to this.
