Athlon XP model 8

Hey peeps,

Does anyone know when AMD's "model 8" XP processors will hit the market in the UK? Ebuyer certainly does not have them yet. I'm not altogethor clued up on this...but I assume "model 6" XP's are the current processor on sale. According to AMD's site the model 8 technical paper was released on the 1st October and shows Vcores running at only 1.5volts for some of the slower XP's...with a corresponding much lower thermal dissipation. In fact the low end new XP's are comparable to the thermal dissipation of a Duron 900

This is probably all old news to you all. But I'm certainly gonna hold off upgrading until these new XP's are out and about.

Oh...another quick question...does anybody know the type of core used in these processors?

Thanks
John

The newest XP is the 2400+, just released. It's proving to be as good an overclocker as any tested so far. These are considered the seventh generation.

I'm not sure if the Barton will be released as an XP. It will probably be the end of the Athlon line as a 32 bit chip, though.

The 64 bit Hammers and the Bartons will be out... hmmmmm (scratches his chin)... hmmmmmmmmm... sometime next year. Your guess is as good as mine. With AMD's track record on release dates, I'd say mid year.

heheheh

I think that the Hammer's will be 8th generation. The XP 2800+ as well as the Barton's(on the horizon) are still built around the 7x86 core, AFAIK.

I dont get it...AMD's site seems to reckon the Athlon XP's (1700 upwards) will soon be model 8?

Perhaps they're talking about the Tbred core, that is currently on the market (2200-2800). They've said that eventually all XP's will be ver.B Thoroughbreds. Watch out for the first version 2200, as it runs hot compared to the ver.B's.

So far they've had 4 Athlons: Classic, Thunderbird, Palomino, and the Thoroughbred.

Thats what I mean Bruno. You've helped me clarify what I'm on about now.

I think basically I was wondering when the XP's will move over to Ver B cores, as they seem far superior in heat dissipation and power usage to the current XP's

Thanks
John

Xp-2400 and higher will be B type processors..
Wincpuid will tell you your CPU model number, I think the .13 tbread was 7, and the B type is 8 although im not sure. Somebody can check easily enough (posting this on a P4 system in the AMD topic :P )

K8 is another name for hammer (K7 is athlon socket-A)

I think Holst is correct on this one. I was going to say the same thing, but wasn't sure if Model 8 was all Tbred B's, or just the 333FSB parts.

Model 8, model 9, model 10, who cares. I want my single sledgehammer with integrated low latency dual channel memory controller, and I want it now damnit!

I just don't think it is worth investing large sums of money in a K7 system.
