    AMD Athlon XP 2700+ Review
    By Vince Freeman :  October 1, 2002

    Value

    The Athlon XP 2700+ and 2800+ are not yet available in the mass market, and AMD has stated that late-November is the target date for allocation. This makes any value judgment a tough call, since any change in Intel pricing between now and then can change the rating. With that in mind, AMD has priced the Athlon XP 2800+ at $397 and the Athlon XP 2700+ at $349, with both of these rated in quantities of 1,000. This compares to approximate retail pricing of $500 for a Pentium 4-2.8 GHz, $400 for a Pentium 4-2.6 GHz and $230 for the Pentium 4-2.53 GHz. In terms of match-ups, both of these processors should compete quite well against the Pentium 4-2.6 GHz, and undercut the Pentium 4-2.8 GHz in overall cost. But as we stated above, any shift in the Intel price matrix and you will need to re-examine the actual rankings.

    Conclusion

    AMD has made the smart move by transitioning the Athlon XP to the 333 MHz front-side bus. This means the Athlon XP 2700+ not brings a lot to the table in terms of current performance, but that the design is much better suited to any faster Athlon XP revisions coming down the pike. Our only regrets are that the move didn't come sooner, and that the Athlon XP 2800+ and 2700+ are still a few months away from retail availability. Other than those caveats, this is another fine release, and finally allows AMD users to get the most out of their hotrod motherboards and high-end DDR333.

    Pros:

    • 333 MHz FSB
    • High Price-Performance
    • Upgradeable Processor

    Cons:

    • Not Yet Available
    • Waiting on Full Motherboard Compatibility List
