3dgn heeft een interview klaarliggen met een mannetje van AMD met daarin wat info over de nieuwe Mustang, Thunderbird en Spitfire. Hieronder vast een gedeelte:
Q5--- Can you give readers an Idea of the clock speeds that the various upcoming AMD chips will release at, and point out some of the primary differences between product waves?
Here is a quick rundown on each of the upcoming Athlon core derivative products.
* Thunderbird is planned to be a high-performance version of the AMD Athlon processor with integrated, full-speed L2 cache. Both Slot and Socket A implementations are possible. Thunderbird will be targeted at the performance workstation and desktop markets.
* Spitfire is planned to be a value version of the AMD Athlon processor with integrated, full-speed L2 cache. Spitfire is planned for Socket A implementation only. Spitfire will be targeted at the value desktop market.
* Mustang is planned to be an enhanced version of Thunderbird, featuring a reduced core size, lower power requirements and large, full-speed, on-die L2 cache. Multiple versions of the Mustang core are planned to be targeted at the high-performance server/workstation, and high-performance desktop, and mobile markets. As for frequencies, we think we can offer processors that operate at competitive frequencies.
