10/17/2000: AMD in the highest thing: Athlon of 1,2 GHz and 800 MHz Duron
Today there are thrown officially the new models of high speed of AMD, in his two scales Athlon and Duron. The new magic numbers of these processors, the most rapid for PC in his respective categories, are: 1,2 GHz (1.200 MHz) and 800 MHz.
Another important news is the prices review in the whole scale of processors AMD: the models Athlon of 1,2 GHz, 1,1 GHz, 1 GHz, 950 MHz, 900 MHz and 850 MHz will cost 612 $, 460 $, 350 $, 282 $, 215 $ and 193 $, respectively, and the 800 MHz Duron , 750 MHz and 700 MHz will cost 170 $, 112 $ and 88 $. Everything for buys in quantities of 1.000 units, of course; and even more bargain sales can be in some distributors...
... Meanwhile, the processors the most rapid equivalent Intel are Pentium III of 1,13 GHz (supposing that has returned to the market, after his retreat for problems of stability) and the 700 MHz Celeron , at a very top price, with worse availability and, at least in the case Duron-Celeron, worse yield. Was not Intel more powerful? Did not it have any more factories? Does anybody understand anything?

Intel at the edge of the ridiculous one? Do they withdraw the Pentium III of 1,13 GHz?
