Overclockability of Athlon XP 2800+ Processors. They Cannot


Recommended Posts

We have already discussed the situation around availability of the newer Athlon XP processors earlier today (see this news-story), and I expressed some doubts about AMD’s ability to start the volume shipments of the 2800+ CPUs on time. By now I have received indirect confirmations to my concerns. Apparently, Athlon XP 2800+’s 2250Mhz frequency is very close to the highest core-clock the core can function at.

Well, yeah. This applies to everything. There is a limit to this technology. Hence, the next evolution of the AMD processor.

AMD has obviously (in OC'rs terms) Hit the wall. They have to move on to a new technology or get left further behind.

And Kal who knows whats up with the name thing, apparently even AMD doesn't know!

And the Barton, Clawhammer, etc. Lots of items on the drawing board, they keep pushing them back. Looks like the K7 will be around for a little while longer.
