With all of the excitement surrounding AMD's first demonstration of functional ClawHammer silicon, who wants to talk about the Athlon XP anymore? Although the next-generation Athlon processor is already up and running two OSes it is far from complete. There are many more revisions the silicon must go through (it's not 100% functional yet and isn't operating anywhere near its shipping frequency) and then there's the task of validating the part (making sure it runs every piece of software with every piece of hardware out there flawlessly, or close enough). The time for talking about the ClawHammer will come soon enough, but before then AMD has a few more Athlon XP's up their sleeves.

Today being the first day of CeBIT, AMD is announcing the latest model of their Athlon XP line - the 2100+. Just like the launch of the 1900+ and the 2000+, the 2100+ brings nothing more to the table outside of another 67MHz. It does mark the end of the line for the Palomino core however, as the Thoroughbred based Athlon XP 2200+ will replace it using AMD's new 0.13-micron manufacturing process.
