Athlon review nummertje weet-ik-veel komt van Gamespot. Hier heb je een stukje uit hun rapport:
So the Athlon is the fastest CPU we've seen to date. Competition is a wonderful thing, and it looks like AMD has delivered on the first half of its promise - it now has a CPU that's faster in both integer and floating point than anything Intel can deliver. The 650MHz Athlon demonstrates that AMD can also deliver higher clock rates.
But the second half of the promise is still unfulfilled, and that's the promise that users can have one. AMD has certainly had production problems in the past. It's looking like they will be somewhat production constrained with the Athlon early on as well. But a bigger problem is that AMD has to build a whole new infrastructure to support the Athlon, including new chipsets and motherboards. That will take time to ramp up. Meanwhile, it's very likely that you'll be able to buy an Athlon system in August sometime; upgraders may have to wait a bit longer.
