THIS IS a simple one. AMD is introducing a new Athlon XP variant today dubbed the 3200+. This processor runs at 2.2GHz on a 400MHz front-side bus, which means the CPU is 33MHz faster than its predecessor, while the bus is 66MHz faster.
Beyond that, there's not a lot new to report. So, after spending untold hours benchmarking a wide range of comparative systems against this new AMD processor, I am currently ingesting a carefully tailored cocktail of stimulants and depressants in order to summarize my results with sparkling wit and rapier prose.
