XP2700+, XP2800+ and nForce2! (0 Comments) (link)
 Tuesday, 1-October-2002  22:40:05 (GMT +10) - by Agg

Told you today would be big (eventually).. with 2 announcements. First up is AMD's dual announcement of XP2700+ and 2800+ CPU's.. these are presumably the subject of this webcast on AMD's site today. Anyway, they're based on the Thoroughbred core and boast a 333MHz (DDR) FSB.

Also, NVIDIA's nForce2 chipset has been announced. This is a socketA DDR chipset supporting the 333MHz FSB of the new chips.

Most sites are combining their reviews/previews of these 2 products as they're obviously well-matched. So, based purely on what they said in their news mailouts, here's what's on a few sites:

HardOCP - AthlonXP 2800+
nV News - nForce2 and XP2700+
Bjorn3D - XP2700+
Hexus - nForce2
HotHardware - nForce2 and XP2700+
DeviantPC - XP2700+
TheTechZone - XP2700+
Tech-Report - nForce2 and XP2800+
AnandTech - AthlonXP 2800+
AnandTech - nForce2
AcesHardware - nForce2 and XP2800+
Computerbase - XP2700+ and XP2800+ (german)

And (Hah! I knew it!) VIA have said that their KT400 and KT333 chipset products really are ready for 333MHz FSB already. Oh, what a surprise. :)
