Wasn't the Tbird technically the 3rd core?
First and Second cores had no nameing schemes, 3rd core was Tbird, fourth core was Palamino (and that is why it was called the Athlon 4), and this is the 5th core, not the 3rd core.
There was no .25 athlon with on die cache, the .18 shrink is what allowed them to put the cache on die, also the slot a with integrated cache is just a tbird on a slot, it is not a whole different core.
4 athlons, only 4(5 now with tbred).

Does anyone know if the Coppermine 733MHZ come in two forms? I mean is it slot AND socket?
I was reading a THG article on the CuMine, and it only had Slot 1 733MHZ, and my friend seems to own a Socket.
