check this article from inquirer

http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=5696

Barton, apparently is to kick off at 2800+, will have, as we know a level two cache of 512K which could give a performance increase of nearly 10 per cent.

check this article from internetnews.com

http://siliconvalley.internet.com/news/article.php/1463021

Barton has a larger data storage feature, known as a cache. Where existing Athlon chips have a 256-kilobyte cache, Barton will store 512 kilobytes of data. The modified version also will have a bus that operates at a frequency of 333 megahertz, up from 266 megahertz.

According to AMD's updated road map, Barton can come out anytime

I will be a little sad to see the barton, in a way it's the begining of the end for the Athlon XP and the whole Athlon era.

It's been a good run, from he Athlon 750 Slot A days, up to the MP days. Lets hope the hammer gives us the same.

This is the end, my only friend the end...

I think that should be the theme tune for th barton :(

ILUSION thanks for the links a little old but still thanks.


i'm like you the way AMD has been spitting out chips the last week or two old barton might just hit and serprise everyone! i need a new processor but i hate to buy one (2600+)for my new abit at7 max2, and then turn around and the barton comes out. i fried my 2200+ last week! using my girlfriends 266mhz model t makes me thankfull for anything over 500mhz.
