SysOpt.com heeft een vrij uitgebreide review van de Athlon 700 neer gemikt, met prestatie en price/performance vergelijkingen met de Celeron en PIII. Hier een hap uit de conclusie:
In the end, you have to be the one to decide whether the Athlon is right for you or your company. But do yourself a big favor and realize this: AMD has caught Intel in the processor war, in every way possible, and they have produced a product that is every bit as good, and in my opinion superior, to the Pentium III. Even if the Coppermine somehow manages to regain Intel's standing, which would, dollar for dollar, Megahertz for Megahertz, be a neat trick, you can be pretty sure that AMD will manage to surpass them once again (at the very least, you'll be able to buy the Kryotech SuperG 1GHz Athlon system in December). If you're an IS manager, at least consider evaluating the Athlon in a single system. If you're an enthusiast and/or IT pro, consider making the Athlon your next upgrade. The Athlon 700 is truely the finest product produced by AMD to date.
