Singapore Hardware Zone heeft een review van de Athlon-500 op hun site gekickt:
It feels good to finally see some competition in the CPU arena. Intel is no longer the title holder for the fastest x86 CPU in the world. Looks like AMD is back in the CPU business and judging from the Athlon's performance, they do mean serious business. Although the processor is top notched, AMD do make it affordable and its pricing should be very competitive with Intel's latest Pentium-III processors. It will not be surprising to see Intel lower the prices of their processors in a bid to weed out the competition. On the other hand, I believe AMD should keep their focus on improving their yields, thus keeping the cost low enough to compete. As for the rest of us, we will just have to wait and hope that AMD will pull out of this difficult time. All AMD supporters, three cheers for AMD!!
Helaas weinig nieuwe info in deze review. Benchmarks zijn er wel, alleen zonder vergelijking met een PIII of Celeron systeem:
