AMD showcases Mobile Athlon 64
It seems a tradition for AMD to demonstrate new products at Intel Developer Forum. Why not: thereís many people and itís a nice chance to show yourself.
This time it is not an exception: in San Jose Convention Center in Fairmont Hotel, AMD showcases its various 64-bit processors.
For the first time AMD presented reference PC design on Mobile Athlon 64 expected about September. The prototype bases on K8T400, has 256Mb PC2100 and ATI M9 graphics.
Besides, it showed off another two systems: on Athlon 3000+ / nForce2 and 3.06GHz Intel Pentium 4 / i845PE. Running a Photoshop script with Intel Hyper-Threading on both resulted in 1500ms for AMD and 1700ms for Intel. But all this has already been thoroughly discussed in our forum. So, I hope we wonít get back to this soon. :-)
Another AMD system Ė 4-processor Opteron-based system under SuSE Linux. It also features AMD 8131 + 8111 (HyperTransport) chipset bundle, 12Gb PC2100 memory, 80Gb hard drive and Matrox G450 graphics.
