The system on NVIDIA nForce2, GeForce FX, and Athlon XP; on the prospects of 400MHz FSB for AMD 7

According to numerous messages from Comdex Fall 2002, at the exhibition they showed the system on AMD Athlon XP, NVIDIA nForce2-based mobo and, NVIDIA GeForce FX. In particular, note that the system had... 400MHz FSB!

This resulted in numerous far-reaching conclusions. For example, Anandtech is sure that 400MHz FSB demo was a kind of strength test before announcing Barton-based Athlon XP. The expected soon VIA KT400A, supporting dual-channel DDR SDRAM, is also forecasted for such processors along with nForce2.

400MHz FSB of the future AMD Bartons is promising and attractive, though not directly confirmed. The showed system had a usual Athlon XP 2800+. Nevertheless, theoretical capabitilty of Athlon XP to support 400MHz FSB lets us hope the market will see such AMD chips.

According to NVIDIA, 400MHz FSB system provides about 20% performance boost comparing a standard Athlon XP 2800+ with 333MHz FSB and enables to speak of 3200+ and higher ratings.
