"Hot on the heels of AMD's Athlon XP release is a second big release: the Athlon MP processor. These new processors are following in line with AMD's new performance rating scheme and are now available in 1500+ (1.33GHz), 1600+ (1.4GHz), and 1800+ (1.53GHz) speeds. With this release, we look at how the multi-processor platform performs under Linux and what you can expect from various applications in a desktop environment. Covered in this article is not only the technology and performance of the AMD-760 MP chipset and the Tyan Thunder K7 motherboard but we also look at why anyone would consider a multi-processor system."
