"My first meeting on Monday was with AMD at the convention center meeting rooms. While there wasn’t a lot of AMD specific information that was new at the show, they did provide some glimpses at other company’s motherboards as well as the Athlon XP 2000+ and an Athlon Thoroughbred core processor. I wasn’t able to get a look at either of the processors (they were installed in machines and running demos) but the fact that there were samples running at all tells me they are relatively close. If I had to take a guess, I would expect the 2000+ processor to be here around January and the Thoroughbred just a few months later."
