AMD's turn at the top of the chips?
Author: JT Smith
The next Pentium 4 upgrade from Intel carries the production name of Northwood, and will be a 2.2GHz processor based on the 0.13-micron manufacturing process. It won't be available until early 2002, likely handing the top processor slot, as far as performance is concerned, back to Advanced Micro Devices. AMD plans to release its 1.6GHz Athlon XP 1900+ chip later this year. Story at ZDNet.
