Ace's Hardware wist meer interessante info over het Athlon DDR SRAM verhaaltje bijeen te harken. Volgens betrouwbare bronnen zou deze Athlon met full-speed L2 cache het werk zijn van een geheugenfabrikant:
Earlier, there was some talk regarding some folks in Japan who apparently managed to swap the cache chips on an Athlon in order to get the cache running at full speed (originally reported by Daiki). There has been some question as to whether or not this is even possible, however, particularly for someone working out of his or her basement. I am now hearing from reliable sources that are indicating that this full-speed DDR Athlon was produced by a memory supplier, and was not the work of a lone overclocker.
The people who have apparently done the work on this Athlon also seem to indicate that AMD's L2 cache controller could use some work, and that potentially even the upcoming Thunderbird may not be able to outperform this DDR-Athlon significantly without a tweaked controller.
