This was contained in the article:

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.

No actually, it's:

1. Athlon Classic 0.25 micron
2. Athlon Classic 0.18 micron
3. Athlon T-Bird
4. Athlon XP Palamino
5. Athlon XP T-Bred

I may be wrong, its been a long time, but iirc all slot a athlons which were .18 were actually just slot mounted tbirds, and there were no .18 micron off die cache athlons.

According to that article there were. There wouldn't be much of a difference if so, however.

But if you're right, then the Palomino wouldn't be the "Athlon 4".

Did you magically teleport straight to the forums without noticing the webpage in front?

they should compate p4 with ddr memory too, 'coz a lot of people build pc with this. rambus is going to die, or at least seems to.

I disagree on all counts, but no matter.

maybe yet?

1. Athlon Classic 0.25 micron - slot1 - external L2
2. Athlon Classic 0.25 micron - socketA - integrated L2
3. Athlon Classic 0.18 micron - socketA - integrated L2
4. Athlon T-Bird - socketA - integrated L2
5. Athlon XP Palamino - socketA - integrated L2
6. Athlon XP T-Bred - socketA - integrated L2

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).

#3 and #4 are the same thing, #2 didn't exist as Mat said, and there was another one, a .18 Slot A.

Tbred is the 5th Athlon.

<font color=blue>Hi mom!</font color=blue>
June 12, 2002 5:43:50 PM

yes, the #1 was an error:
1. Athlon Classic 0.25 micron - slotA - external L2

Well, they're not talking about which number of core it was...but rather, which stage of evolution in which they are with the newest release:

Athlon (original): Introduces AMD into the marketplace as a competative and able producer of consumer CPU's

Thunderbird: Stage 1 of their EVOLUTION of the Athlon core
Palmino: Evolution 2
Thoroughbred, Evolution #3 of the Athlon core

Yes, I believe that is what they are speaking of.

June 12, 2002 7:39:42 PM

Oh, I didn't even notice that it said Slot 1 instead of Slot A.
There were two Slot As I believe, one .25 and one .18.

The .18 slot a was a tbird on a slot, it is not a whole different core.

I dont think Fatburger was implying that they were completely different. I think he was just saying that there was two types of slot A athlons, one at .25 and one at .18
June 13, 2002 4:44:27 PM

Yeah, basically. The L2 was still off-die though, wasn't it?

Since we're on the topic of CPUs.... :lol: 

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.

Coppermine was the socket version only, I believe. I could be wrong, it's been a while.

No, there is no off die cache .18 micron athlon.

Yes, that chip [733coppermine] comes in both FCPGA and SECC2
